American media Washington Post, New York Times and CNN reported that the president invited elected Republican members of the Michigan legislature to meet with him in Washington on Friday.
Several allies of the president have already expressed their desire to see legislatures in key states where Republicans have a majority, such as Michigan, nominate their own pro-Trump grand voters instead of those nominated by popular vote.
In that state, Joe Biden has collected some 157,000 more than his opponent.
The president-designate won Michigan, but also the key states of Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia, six states with a total of 79 voters.
Joe Biden denounced the
incredible irresponsibility of the president, who refuses to recognize the election results and blocks the transition process as the pandemic continues to kill thousands of Americans.
It sends incredibly damaging messages to the rest of the world about how democracy works, he said during a press conference held after a virtual meeting with several governors of the two parties.
What the president is doing now is one more incident that history will remember him as one of the most irresponsible presidents in the history of the United States.
He did not rule out filing a lawsuit to gain formal recognition from the General Service Administration (GSA), the federal agency supposed to sign the documentation needed to begin the transition process. Such recognition, usually a formality, would give it the financial and logistical resources to carry out the work of the transition.
He was careful, however, to make it clear that he did not think this would be the most effective course of action.

A few days ago, Donald Trump presented him as the
spearhead of the judicial efforts of his campaign after the withdrawal of several of his lawyers.
The senior electoral security official dismissed by the president Earlier this week, Chris Krebs took to Twitter to denounce the conspiracies put forward by Donald Trump’s lawyers.
This press conference was the most dangerous hour and three quarters of television in American history. And maybe the craziest.
Mr. Krebs, director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), had contradicted the unfounded allegations of electoral fraud.
A few days ago, Mr. Krebs, a key player in the federal electoral security apparatus, had signed, with the officials of several national and local electoral authorities, a joint statementensuring the integrity and security of the election, presented as
safest in history, before being fired by the president for this reason.
