Despite pressure from all sides to concede the election to former Vice President Joe Biden, President Trump soldiers onward in exposing voter fraud and manipulation.
Trump just revealed on Thursday that he’s confident that he can flip Arizona by forcing a statewide audit due to the fact that he only trails Joe Biden by less than 12,000 votes.
Though most mainstream media outlets have called the critical swing state for Biden, votes are still being counted in Maricopa County, the state’s most populous county by far.
Breitbart reported on Thursday:
Maricopa County’s latest batch of results showed the president taking 53.4 percent of the 13,143 votes counted and Biden taking 44.3 percent, according to Data Orbital. Biden’s lead stood at 11,635 as of Wednesday evening.
There are 24,738 ballots remaining, 6,715 of which are in Maricopa County. At this point, Trump would need to take 74 percent of the remaining ballots to overtake his Democrat challenger and secure the state’s 11 electoral votes.
President Trump noted that Biden’s lead has shrunk from a commanding 200,000 ballots down to just over 11,000, placing him well within reach of the state’s 11 electoral votes. There are still over 46,000 ballots to be counted.
“From 200,000 votes to less than 10,000 votes. If we can audit the total votes cast, we will easily win Arizona also!” Trump declared via Twitter.
Breitbart noted that triggering a recount in the Grand Canyon state is difficult, requiring a margin of 4,000 or fewer votes. Additionally, Arizona’s secretary of state, Katie Hobbs, has made it clear in the past that she is deeply unsympathetic to Trump.
Hobbs tweeted in 2017 — while still serving as a Democratic state senator — in an apparent response to the Charlottesville riots, “@realDonaldTrump has made it abundantly clear he’s more interested in pandering to his neo-nazi base than being @POTUS for all Americans.”
Hobbs rejected a request from Arizona Senate President Karen Fann (R) for an “independent analysis” of the state’s voting data, arguing that it would “undermine our democratic process for political gain.”
The Trump campaign and Republican National Committee (RNC) filed a lawsuit in the state over the weekend alleging that eligible voters that showed up on election day to cast their vote improperly had their ballot rejected.
