Today’s meeting between Donald Trump and Republican leaders from Michigan has been described as “an embarrassment to the state” by Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
Whitmer, who was subject to a right-wing kidnap plot earlier this year over her attempts to curb coronavirus in Michigan, added “It’s incredibly dangerous that they are even entertaining the conversation.”
Is there any route for Donald Trump to retain the White House? Yesterday he was claiming his lawyers would outline a viable path to victory.
Tom Hals at Reuters writes that Trump’s latest strategy for attacking the legitimacy of the US election appears to be focusing on persuading Republican state lawmakers to overturn the vote in states won by his Democratic challenger Joe Biden.
