Trump’s strategy to stay in the White House doesn’t seem to be working.

Donald Trump’s attempts to reverse the outcome in the US elections suffered yet another setback after Republican lawmakers in Michigan are unwilling to try to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in that state.

After meeting with Trump in the White House, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and State House Speaker Lee Chatfield pledged to follow “normal process” for the certification of results that give Biden a broad victory over the current president.

“We have not yet had knowledge of no information that changes the outcome of the elections in Michigan and, as legislative leaders, we will follow the law and normal process regarding Michigan voters, as we have said throughout this election, “they later insisted in a statement.

The projections give Biden a 154,000 vote lead in the state, which sends 16 representatives to the Electoral College that is charged with electing the president.
