Twitter to give @POTUS account to Biden on Inauguration Day

Donald Trump Jr. Has COVID-19

Republican state lawmakers from MI whom Donald Trump summoned to the White House on Friday in an extraordinary effort to try to set aside Joe Biden's victory, indicated they would certify the state's results.

Via GoFundMe, Biden said: "Here's the deal: Because President Trump refuses to concede and is delaying the transition, we have to fund it ourselves and need your help".

Meanwhile, two GOP state lawmakers from MI met with the president at the White House on Friday over its election process, amid the president's ongoing legal challenges in several battleground states.

The White House insisted the get-together was "not an advocacy meeting" and cast it as routine.

"We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in MI", the state's Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield said in a joint statement after meeting Trump.

The Republican legislators stood firm, saying they would honor the election's outcome.

"But because I've been part of the process, I've had to be more guarded", he said.

"Michigan's certification process should be a deliberate process free from threat and intimidation", they added. "Allegations of fraudulent behavior should be taken seriously, thoroughly investigated, and if proven, prosecuted to the full extent of the law. These are simple truths that should provide confidence in our elections".

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

While President Donald Trump is well within his rights to challenge the preliminary results in court, GSA Administrator Emily Murphy has arguably abused her authority by not allowing Biden's team to access the funds. Trump and his allies have baselessly sought to contest the race's results despite Biden leading overwhelmingly in both the popular and electoral vote.
