Georgia confirms Biden's victory in US Presidential Election

Georgia pours cold water on Trump bid to overturn Biden win

'Working as an engineer throughout my life, I live by the motto that numbers don't lie, ' Raffensperger said during a news conference at the state Capitol.

'I believe that the numbers that we have presented today are correct. "The numbers reflect the verdict of the people, not a decision by the secretary of state's office or of courts or of either campaign". During the audit, several counties discovered previously uncounted ballots and had to recertify their results.

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%.

Until now, Republicans in Congress have mostly said Trump should have latitude in pursuing legal claims of wrongdoing in the election.

After a series of court defeats, the Trump team is resting its hopes on getting Republican-controlled legislatures in battleground states won by Biden to set aside the results and declare Trump the victor, according to people familiar with his plan.

'Massive voter fraud will be shown!' he wrote, alongside a statement about his meeting with the MI legislature.

Brian Kemp certified President-elect Joe Biden's win in the state Friday but called for another hand recount.

'This is true, but much different than reported by the media.

Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield met with Trump at the White House but said they had not seen any evidence that would "change the outcome of the election" in the state. We will show massive and unprecedented fraud!'

They said, however, that they will "follow the law".

Their statement also included language saying fraud should be "taken seriously" and be prosecuted if uncovered.

Afterwards, Mr Shirkey and Mr Chatfield said in a joint press release: "We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in MI and as legislative leaders, we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan's electors, just as we have said throughout this election".

It came after they got hounded by protesters upon arriving in Washington.

Mr Trump has also expressed interest in inviting legislators from Pennsylvania, another battleground won by Mr Biden, to the White House for a meeting, a senior campaign official confirmed to the BBC's U.S. partner, CBS News. Ms McEnany also said that media outlets had accused Mr Trump of having colluded with Russian Federation, an allegation that a major justice department inquiry found no evidence to support.

Even as the Biden team remains unable to access resources and government experts to help assume management of the $4 trillion U.S. government on Inauguration Day, Trump officials have been making unexpected changes to programs, policies and agencies that could affect the incoming administration.
