Mr Trump has seized on a recent Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling which outlaws ballot drop boxes in future elections, claiming that the court’s ruling that the Wisconsin Election Commission exceeded its authority by authorising drop box use as a pandemic mitigation measure means President Joe Biden’s win in state is invalid.
In a statement, Mr Trump asked: “So what’s Speaker Robin Vos doing on the Great Wisconsin Supreme Court Ruling declaring hundreds of thousands of Drop Box votes to be illegal?”
In reality, the court ruling did not invalidate a single vote cast by drop box. And neither Mr Vos nor the Wisconsin legislature have the authority to retroactively invalidate votes or rescind electoral votes.
In an interview with Milwaukee ABC affiliate WISN, Mr Vos said he recieved a phone call last week in which the former president again demanded that somehow find a way to reverse his 2020 loss.
“It’s very consistent — he makes his case … he would like us to do something different in Wisconsin, I explained that it’s not allowed under the Constitution,” said Mr Vos, who added that the former president “has a different opinion”.
Do you approve of President Trump’s continued efforts to overturn the 2020 general election? Why or why not?
Do you believe as Trump does that the SCOTUS decision mentioned here gives us a valid reason to contest the election in Wisconsin or other states?
