The Russian president has also expressed his view that “The electoral system in the United States presents some problems.” “It seems absolutely obvious to me and everyone,” he has made known. “However,” he has qualified, “It is not our business if they have to change something or not.

Count in Georgia and reverse in Pennsylvania
The campaign of the American president and Republican candidate for the United States elections, Donald Trump, asked this Saturday a new tally of votes in the state of Georgia, after the former gave victory to his rival, the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, as the official count had done.
Losing by a margin of less than 0.5 percent, the Trump campaign called for a vote recount that ended Thursday after manually reviewing five million ballots. Now you can ask for a second recount that will not be manual, but by scanning the ballots.
The result of the first count gave 12,284 votes ahead of President-elect Joe Biden.Therefore, this Friday the Governor and the Secretary of State of Georgia, both from the Republican Party, certified the results of the election.
In your statement, the Trump campaign has called it “false results” known so far and has asked to stop counting “illegal ballots.”
The order in Georgia coincides with a major setback in Pennsylvania as a federal judge dismissed the lawsuit more important than the outgoing president’s campaign, Donald Trump, had presented in Pennsylvania, and left him practically without options to reverse the result of the elections in that state on which the keys to the White House depend.
Judge Matthew Brann’s decision implies that Pennsylvania counties have a free hand to certify the result of the November 3 elections, for which the deadline is met this Monday, and confirm the president-elect, Joe, as the winner of the territory. Biden.
The lawsuit was intended to invalidate millions of votes cast by mail arguing that the ability of voters to correct errors on their ballots in certain counties was detrimental to Trump’s party, the Republican. The magistrate ruled that the Trump campaign had resorted to “flawed and meritless legal arguments and speculative accusations “In his attempt to discard millions of votes.” In the United States of America this cannot justify the suppression of the right to vote for a single voter, much less all voters in its sixth most populous state, “wrote Brann.
The decision marks a deep setback for the legal strategy of the Trump campaign, which has already lost other cases in Pennsylvania, in addition to Michigan, Georgia, Nevada and Arizona. in her complaint with no evidence of voter fraud. This lawsuit was the last major lawsuit active in Pennsylvania, and the outgoing president’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, personally defended her during a hearing last Tuesday.
