US Election: Donald Trump Vows To Challenge Late Vote Counts In Court

 

 



President of the United States, Donald Trump has said his legal team will head to court immediately after the US presidential election to challenge the counting of late ballots.

Trump made the statement on Sunday, November 1, when speaking to reporters in Charlotte ahead of a rally in Hickory, North Carolina, The Guardian reported.

The US president raised doubts over mail and absentee votes, and questioned why the counting of late arriving ballots should be allowed after election day.

He said vote counting after Tuesday, November 3, should not be allowed and raised the possibility of challenging the issue in court.

Trump said: “I think it’s a terrible thing when ballots can be collected after an election. I think it’s a terrible thing when states are allowed to tabulate ballots for a long period of time after the election is over.”

“As soon as the election is over - we’re going in with our lawyers.”

In another report, a survey has shown that the US president has many supporters in Nigeria. The survey by Pew Research Centre suggested that 58% of people in Nigeria said they have confidence in Trump.

The support for Trump in Nigeria may come as a surprise because the US president has been accused in the past of making negative comments about African countries.

Meanwhile, a report by Media Post stated that the political campaigns by the Democrats and the Republicans across TV, radio, and digital have gulped a massive $8.15 billion.

Globaltipsgh.com has taken a look at the financial cost of the electioneering process as Americans head to the polls. Using the Naira-Dollar official rate by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), N379/$1, $8.15 billion is about N3.1 trillion.
