Donald Trump’s campaign consultant for re-election, Jason Miller, denied that there was a split in the president’s top team on whether or not to turn the 2020 election over to President-elect Joe Biden on Sunday night.
In response to a CNN report, Miller also denied that he would urge Trump to join former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani and the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in holding campaign rallies in key states to count votes.
CNN anchorman Jake Tapper reported last night in social media that the trio Trump encouraged Biden’s election victory to be pushed back, while White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and conservative activist David Bossie told him to give up the race.
“To be clear, there is no credible strategy of recounts leading to anything other than Joe Biden as elected president,” Tapper added. “It’s all about appeasing the president’s ego and courting him for favor, sources say.
Furthermore, the network’s website reported that the recounts were accompanied by other news – such as obituaries for dead people who allegedly cast ballots – that were intended to sow doubts about the credibility of the results in key swing states, which only narrowly favored Biden.
“This is 100% wrong. There is absolutely no truth in this report,” Miller twittered. “[Chief of Staff] Meadows, Dave Bossie, Jared Kushner, Rudy [Giuliani], myself and everyone else is on the same side – we all work for Donald Trump and follow his example, and there is no daylight between us.
The CNN report is based on information from several anonymous sources close to the President, who are supposedly familiar with the news plans surrounding his election defeat.
Miller denied a split in President Trump’s inner circle over the need to grant the election to President-elect Biden, as the commander-in-chief continued to question the result, claiming it was somehow illegal or fraudulent over the weekend.
The trump card was chirped on Saturday: “THE CONTROLLERS SHOULD NOT ENTER THE PAYMENT ROOMS. I WON THE ELECTION AND RECEIVED 71,000,000 LEGAL VOTES. BAD THINGS HAPPENED THAT OUR OBSERVERS WERE NOT ALLOWED TO SEE. THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. MILLIONS OF POSTAL BALLOTS WERE SENT TO PEOPLE WHO NEVER ASKED FOR THEM!”
The president also described the election as “total chaos” and asked why it was the “Lamestream Media” that had called the results since voters went to the polls on November 3.
Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election on Saturday night when the counting of votes in Nevada and Pennsylvania came to an end – with 26 crucial votes from the electoral college that gave him over the 270 votes needed to secure the White House.
“I know that tensions can be high after a tough election like the one we just had,” the President-Elect tweeted on Saturday night. “But we must remain calm,” the President-Elect tweeted on Saturday night. Patience. And let the process unfold while we count all the votes”.
