Trump Pays $3 Million for Recount of Two Wisconsin Counties

'The people of Wisconsin deserve to know whether their election processes worked in a legal and transparent way...'

(Headline USA) President Donald Trump‘s campaign has paid $3 million for a recount of two heavily Democratic Wisconsin counties, saying Wednesday that they were the site of the “worst irregularities.”

Trump paid for the recounts in Milwaukee and Dane counties overnight Tuesday and planned to submit the required paperwork to trigger the recount on Wednesday, the campaign said in a statement.

In the two counties Trump chose for the recount, officials allegedly counted 577,455 votes for Democrat Joe Biden, compared with 213,157 for Trump.

Biden won statewide by 20,608 votes, based on canvassed results submitted by the counties.

“The people of Wisconsin deserve to know whether their election processes worked in a legal and transparent way,” said Wisconsin attorney Jim Troupis, who is working with the Trump campaign. “Regrettably, the integrity of the election results cannot be trusted without a recount in these two counties and uniform enforcement of Wisconsin absentee ballot requirements. We will not know the true results of the election until only the legal ballots cast are counted.”

The recount, once formally approved by the elections commission chair, could start as soon as Thursday and no later than Saturday.

It would have to be complete by Dec. 1.

A 2016 presidential recount in Wisconsin netted Trump an additional 131 votes.

Trump won Wisconsin by fewer than 23,000 votes that year.

Trump and other Republicans have made claims of fraud and irregularities in the Wisconsin election.

On Nov. 7, WISN in Milwaukee reported that multiple sources said municipal clerks and vote counters filled out witness signatures on absentee ballots, in violation of state law.

And an analysis by The Gateway Pundit found that “votes were transferred from President Trump to Joe Biden in an unnatural pattern indicating fraud.”

The state’s top elections chief and local officials have said there were no substantial reports of problems or wrongdoing.
