Breaking: Trump Loses To Biden After Paying $3m For Georgia Recount

Donald Trump Loses To Biden After Paying $3m For Georgia Recount

Iexclusive News Nigeria reports that the recount of ballots in the US state of Georgia offered no electoral redemption for President Donald Trump.

 

This online news medium learnt that Trump Loses to Biden after the recounts of Georgia ballots.

 

In a much expected announcement, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said a hand audit of ballots in the state had confirmed Joe Biden as the winner of the Nov. 3 election.

 

An audit was launched after unofficial results showed Biden leading President Donald Trump by about 14,000 votes.

 

Raffensperger said there was “no doubt” that the state would certify Biden’s victory on Friday.

 

“The audit has aligned very close to what we had in election night reporting,” Raffensperger told local station WSB-TV.

 

It’s so close, it’s not a thimble full of difference.”

 

With all of the state’s 59 counties reporting their results, Biden holds a 12,284-vote edge over Trump.

 

The margin was only slightly narrower than the roughly 14,000-vote lead the president-elect held in the initial vote tally.

 

“Georgia’s historic first statewide audit reaffirmed that the state’s new secure paper ballot voting system accurately counted and reported results,” said Raffensperger in a statement Thursday.

 

“This is a credit to the hard work of our county and local elections officials who moved quickly to undertake and complete such a momentous task in a short period of time.”

 

Biden was declared the winner in Georgia last week, becoming the first Democrat since 1992 to carry the state in a presidential election.

 

Raffensperger ordered a full hand recount of the vote last week amid intense pressure from Trump and his allies, who repeatedly made the false claim that the election results were tainted by widespread voter fraud and systemic irregularities.

 

Raffensperger has defended the integrity of the election and has said that he ordered the hand recount only to reassure voters of the accuracy of the results
