Of course, this unprecedented refusal to concede the election has made headlines around the nation, with many American politicians and even some world leader simply ignoring Trump’s claims and moving ahead with President-elect Joe Biden.
On Wednesday, the Trump campaign team filed yet another lawsuit in regard to the election results, this time in Michigan.
The federal lawsuit, which the campaign said it filed late Tuesday, seeks to stop the state from certifying results that show Democrat Joe Biden leading by almost 146,000 votes.
