Trump reportedly didn't directly pressure MI lawmakers in 'unprecedented meeting'

Two prominent Republican senators on Thursday ripped President Donald Trump's attempt to overturn the results of the presidential election in MI, with one going so far as to call the President's strategy "undemocratic".

Georgia's governor and top elections official certified results showing Joe Biden won the presidential race over Republican President Donald Trump, bringing the state one step closer to wrapping up an election fraught with unfounded accusations of fraud by Trump and his supporters. "It is hard to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American president".

Biden is the first Democrat to carry Georgia since 1992.

On Saturday, Ronna McDaniel, chair of the Republican National Committee, and Laura Cox, chairperson of the Michigan Republican Party, sent a letter to the Board of State Canvassers asking them not to certify Michigan's election results at a Monday meeting.

Mr Trump, however, has so far refused to concede or allow an official transition to begin, as is customary.

Now that the results are certified, Trump's campaign will have two business days to request a recount since the margin is within 0.5%.

Such an extraordinary event would be unprecedented in modern USA history. The State had also had announced an audit of the first count, required by law.
