The headquarters of the incumbent US President Donald Trump is withdrawing a lawsuit challenging the results of the counting of votes in the presidential election in Michigan. Reported by the agency Reuters citing a statement by the American leader’s lawyer Rudolph Giuliani on Thursday, November 19.
“This morning, we are withdrawing our Michigan lawsuit, achieving what we were aiming for – ending the early certification of Wayne County election results until all residents are satisfied that every legitimate vote has been counted and every illegal vote has not.” – the agency quotes the words of the defender.
Trump’s plans to file a lawsuit demanding not to confirm the voting results in the Michigan elections were announced on November 10 by the Republican’s headquarters lawyer Matt Morgan. The lawyer argued that the headquarters would require evidence that the state’s voting was transparent and fair.

According to the latest data Fox News across all US states, Biden is ahead of Trump by 3.8% (51% versus 47.2%).
The US presidential election was held on November 3. Trump disagrees with his defeat and does not recognize Biden as the country’s new president. Republican campaign lawyers are filing lawsuits and trying to challenge voting results in a number of key states.
