Trump wins in Alaska
Not all of this is surprising, Donn’t objected.
Does this mean that the electoral process in Alaska is unquestionably watertight compared to its corrupt, leaky counterparts in Michigan and Pennsylvania – or is it just a red state that won because the Republican candidate always wins, and thus is not of use?

Regarding the disputed votes, Mr. Fetterman told the president, “Bring him to the Supreme Court, for whatever matters to me, the Vice President will increase from 50 to 60,000 votes upon completion of all the counting processes, if not more.”
“In sum, there is no truth in any of this, and at some point we must all collectively accept that screaming voter fraud, when there is no evidence at all, is shouting“ fire ”in a crowded theater, and it is detrimental to the democratic privilege of our country Peaceful transfer of power, and we cannot accept that. ”
The president continued to make unfounded allegations on Twitter Wednesday night, indicating that Republican ballot observers were being prevented from monitoring vote counting processes.

Trump intends to execute more prisoners than any other president
The federal government is set to execute three death row inmates in a time window before Joe Biden takes office, as Donald Trump continues his unprecedented and enthusiastic embrace of the death penalty.
Trump in July 2019 ordered the resumption of federal executions, and this year, on July 14, the first inmate was executed, ending a 17-year hiatus.
