Trump campaign to file lawsuit in Nevada to count every ‘legal’ vote: Report

Published: Updated:

The Trump campaign will announce on Thursday that it is filing a lawsuit in Nevada, alleging voter fraud, according to Fox News.

Former acting Director of National Intelligence under Trump, Ric Grenell, is set to hold a press conference in Las Vegas to announce the lawsuit “that seeks to count every 'legal' vote.”

“The Trump campaign is alleging that at least 10,000 people voted in the state, despite no longer living there,” according to the report.

Trump’s campaign has filed lawsuits to stop vote counting in two other battleground states, Michigan and Pennsylvania, and has called for a recount in Wisconsin.

The campaign also asked a judge in Georgia to order late-arriving ballots to be separated and secured so that they cannot be counted.

Two days after Election Day, neither Trump nor Democratic candidate Joe Biden have amassed the votes needed to win the White House.

In order to win, Trump, with 214 electoral votes, must claim all four remaining battlegrounds: Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia and Nevada.

Just after Biden tweeted “Every vote must be counted,” on Thursday, Trump tweeted: “STOP THE COUNT!”
