WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump met Friday with Michigan lawmakersas part of an overall effort to reverse election losses in key states – but his guests said later that Michigan’s electoral votes should go to the winner of its popular vote, and that is Joe Biden.
“The candidates who win the most votes win elections and Michigan’s electoral votes,” said a joint statement from Mike Shirkey, the majority leader in the Michigan state senate, and Lee Chatfield, speaker of the Michigan House. “These are simple truths that should provide confidence in our elections.”
White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said Trump did not plan the session as “an advocacy meeting.” But other aides said the president has discussed the long-shot idea of pressuring Republican-led state legislatures to send a pro-Trump slate of electors to the Electoral College – even in states like Michigan where the voters went for Biden.
