Donald Trump will sue Nevada after claiming its election vote has been rigged

Donald Trump will sue the state of Nevada after claiming its election process has been rigged. The President of the United States is expected to file the lawsuit Thursday morning, claiming that at least 10,000 people voted in the state, despite no longer living there – a breach of election rules.

Trump’s former director of national security Richard Grenell is expected to announce the lawsuit in Nevada on Thursday morning, according to Fox News. Joe Biden is currently leading the Nevada vote, with a result expected to be declared on Thursday afternoon.

If Biden wins, its six electoral college votes would give him the 270 he needs to become the next president, according to AP’s current polling. Trump has already filed lawsuits in Michigan and Pennsylvania after claiming they too had fallen victim to election rigging.

Biden won Michigan, taking back a state Trump had flipped from Democrat to Republican in the 2016 election. The president has also demanded a recount in Wisconsin after Biden also managed to flip it back to Democrat blue after Trump claimed a surprise victory over Hillary Clinton there four years ago.

Wisconsin’s election boss Meagan Wolfe has insisted all votes were counted correctly, and says a recount will emphasize this. Any recount will not take place until next week, meaning it could be a moot point if Biden or Trump ends up bagging a definitive number of electoral college votes.

Team Trump’s plan to sue Nevada came as the president made his latest interjection in the ongoing election results count, tweeting: ‘STOP THE COUNT’ on Thursday morning. He did so just hours after many of his supporters – some of them armed – descended on a counting center in Maricopa County, Arizona, to demand that workers there count every single vote.
