US President Donald Trump has suffered further defeats in his attempt to overturn the outcome of the US election. Wisconsin authorities on Monday confirmed Democrat Joe Biden’s victory after a recount in two counties. Trump’s defeat was also formally confirmed in the US state of Arizona.
“We’re good at the elections here in Arizona,” said Governor Doug Ducey, like Trump a Republican.
The outgoing US president reacted angrily to the news from Arizona. On Twitter, he criticized his party colleagues: “Why is he rushing to get a Democrat into office?” Republicans will remember that for a long time! “
In Arizona, Biden had won the presidential election on November 3rd by almost 10,500 votes. The 78-year-old is the first Democratic presidential candidate since Bill Clinton in 1996, who won the conservative state in the southwestern United States. The president has still not admitted defeat in the November 3rd election.
At the same time as the certification of the election result in Arizona, Trump’s private attorney Rudy Giuliani held a meeting in the state with state politicians from the Republican Party on alleged electoral fraud. Giuliani had organized a similar meeting in Pennsylvania last week. Trump was connected by phone.
Trump and Giuliani speak of massive election fraud without evidence. Electoral officials and experts firmly reject the allegations, the Trump camp has crashed with numerous lawsuits.
Trump also tried to delay the certification of election results in key states that he lost to Biden – but to no avail. Before Arizona and Wisconsin, Georgia, Michigan and Pennsylvania, among others, had certified their respective election results. This is an important formal step following the election.
The nation’s 538 electorate will vote on the future president on December 14th. Biden secured 306 voters in the elections, and he needed at least 270 voters to win. The former vice president is due to be sworn in as the 46th president in US history on January 20.
Criticism of Biden’s personality
Biden has been preparing to take over official duties for weeks. On Monday he nominated, among other things, the former central bank chief Janet Yellen as future finance minister. The head of the left-wing Center for American Progress Institute, Neera Tanden, is to lead the budget and administrative authority based at the White House OMB.
But there was immediate criticism of the personnel. Republicans prophesied the 50-year-old, who had been noticed with sharp remarks against Trump, that she would not be confirmed by the Senate. Tanden also met with criticism in the camp of left-wing Senator Bernie Sanders. In the past she had spoken out against proposals for statutory health insurance for everyone.
Like the future ministers and other key government officials, Tanden must be approved by the Congress Chamber. Should the Republicans defend their Senate majority, they could fail Tanden.
