The results of the recount in Milwaukee County showed that Biden had a net gain of 132 votes, out of nearly 460,000 cast.

He said:

The recount demonstrates what we already know: that elections in Milwaukee county are fair, transparent, accurate and secure.”

Meanwhile, efforts by the Trump campaign to change the outcome of the US presidential election suffered another blow in a Federal Appeals Court on Friday, November 27.

According to CNN, the campaign's appeal alleging voting irregularities was denied by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals for lacking evidence.

The three-judge panel that gave the ruling pointed out that the allegations had already been rejected by multiple state judges in Pennsylvania.

In another report, President Donald Trump has questioned a report which stated that Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, garnered 80 million votes in the US election.

Trump in a tweet on Thursday, November 26, argued that there was no way Biden got such huge number of votes.

He alleged that the report about Biden’s win was an indication that the US election was rigged.
