Trump Advisers Heading to Philadelphia: Campaign

November 4, 2020 Updated: November 4, 2020

Advisers to President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign will hold a news conference in Philadelphia later in the day as Pennsylvania remains too close to call.

Trump’s son, Eric, will also be there, the campaign said.

“Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. will host a press conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with Eric Trump, Trump 2020 Senior Advisor Lara Trump, Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, and campaign Senior Advisor Corey Lewandowski at 3:30 pm EST,” the campaign said in a press release.

It did not make mention of former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who said that Trump’s legal team is going to Philadelphia and alleged there is “massive cheating” going on, without elaborating.

“En route to Philadelphia with legal team. Massive cheating,” he wrote on Twitter. He added that Trump is “up by 550,000 with 75% counted. Will not let Philly Democrat hacks steal it!”

On Tuesday night, Giuliani alleged: “CROOKED PHILLY DEMOCRAT MACHINE STOPS COUNTING. ALL THEIR BALLOTS SHOULD BE IMPOUNDED AND COUNTED BY INDEPENDENT MONITOR NOT BY CROOKED HACK POLITICIANS.”

It comes as Trump’s campaign filed a lawsuit to stop the counting of votes in Michigan.

“President Trump’s campaign has not been provided with meaningful access to numerous counting locations to observe the opening of ballots and the counting process, as guaranteed by Michigan law. We have filed suit today in the Michigan Court of Claims to halt counting until meaningful access has been granted,” campaign manager Bill Stepien said in a statement.

He added: “We also demand to review those ballots which were opened and counted while we did not have meaningful access. President Trump is committed to ensuring that all legal votes are counted in Michigan and everywhere else.”
