Michigan officials on Monday voted to certify the results of the Nov. 3 US presidential election that showed Democrat Joe Biden winning the state.
President Donald Trump's legal team on Monday said it would continue its legal strategy to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential election after the Michigan Board of State Canvassers on Monday voted to certify the results of the Nov. 3 US presidential election that showed Democrat Joe Biden winning the state.
The board passed the motion in a meeting that was broadcast virtually.
“Certification by state officials is simply a procedural step," said Jenna Ellis, a legal adviser to Trump's 2020 campaign, in a statement. "We are going to continue combatting election fraud around the country as we fight to count all the legal votes. Americans must be assured that the final results are fair and legitimate."
Trump, a Republican, has not conceded the election to Biden, a Democrat, and has alleged widespread voter fraud without providing evidence.
