President Donald Trump is still battling in court over problems with the 2020 presidential election. Why, then, is everyone so eager for him to concede the election to former Vice President Joe Biden?
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) doesn’t agree with those calling on the president to give the election away to Biden. Jordan told Heather Childers on Newsmax TV’s “American Agenda” Tuesday “instinctively, everyone knows there are problems with this election.”
Jordan said Trump is a president “who gets things done,” so now is no time to give up. “This is a president who does what he told the American people he was going to do, accomplishes what he was elected to do and this is just one more example of him getting something done that’s valuable important to the country.”
The Congressman went on to explain why so many people don’t trust the election results, beginning with how Trump “increased his total by 10 to 11 million” and still somehow lost. “We won 27 out of 27 toss-up states. He increases his votes with Hispanic Americans, African-Americans,” Jordan pointed out. “State legislatures that Republicans control we kept all those plus, increase those numbers. You can just go down the line, he won 19 of the 20 bellwether counties. He won Ohio by eight, Florida by three yet somehow he doesn’t win.”
“So we know we need to look at all this,” Jordan urged. “There is a number of lawsuits that are pending, the one that was filed in Texas today regarding several states. Let’s see how that all shakes out. Let’s get to the bottom of this for the well being of the country.”
The Trump legal team has attempted several legal challenges, but hasn’t made much headway in court. However, one case may make it up to the U.S. Supreme Court. On Tuesday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed suit against Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan hoping the Supreme Court would intervene to throw out the 62 Electoral College votes in those states and shift the decision to the legislature, Fox News reported.
We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!

Arkansas, Louisiana, and Missouri would also be joining Texas’ lawsuit against the states. Georgia Republicans including Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue along with Gov. Brian Kemp also pledged their support for Trump’s case against the battleground states.
Jordan’s presentation of the facts and conclusion about the election results echoed the sentiment Trump supporters have felt since Election Day. After watching thousands of people pack into venues to rally for the president leading up to the election and seeing reports emerge about shady things happening during vote counting, it isn’t hard to come to the same conclusion: Something’s rotten in the 2020 presidential election.
