Donald Trump

Today marks an important Electoral College deadline. Here’s why that’s bad news for Trump

As President Trump continues to make baseless claims of fraud and a stolen election, today marks a very important deadline and possible end to the Trump election challenge.

From USA Today:

President Donald Trump’s long-shot bid to overturn the election could become more far-fetched after Tuesday, when states with legal fights and recounts behind them can receive assurance that Congress must accept their electors. Tuesday marks the so-called safe harbor deadline. Federal law requires that Congress recognize the slates of electors chosen by states that have resolved election disputes by this date.

The Electoral College will formally meet in all 50 states on Monday December 14, 2020 and officially cast their ballots for President and Vice-President of the United States. In that moment it will be over for Donald Trump and his bid to overturn the 2020 election.
