The Trump campaign has requested recounts in two Wisconsin counties – Milwaukee and Dane – claiming they voted for "irregularities."
Trump Campaign: Milwaukee and Dane See "Worst Irregularities"
The recount, which will cost $ 3 million, will not be nationwide as some may have suspected, but will focus on counties Milwaukee and Dane, two of the most liberal counties in the entire state.
According to the Trump election campaign, the “worst irregularities” in the elections took place in these two districts.
"The people of Wisconsin deserve to know whether their electoral processes were legal and transparent," said Jim Troupis, a Wisconsin attorney who works with the president's campaign team on the recount filing.
“Unfortunately, the integrity of election results cannot be trusted without a recount and uniform enforcement of postal voting requirements in Wisconsin in these two counties. We will not know the real results of the elections until only the votes cast are counted, ”he added.

The lawsuit alleges that "city employees throughout the state of Wisconsin illegally altered postal voting by independently changing witness addresses to postal voting envelopes," as required by Wisconsin law.

The Mayor of Milwaukee claims the Wisconsin recount request is racist
Milwaukee County is the largest in the state and home to the city that gives it its name, while Dane County is home to Madison, the liberal capital of the University of Wisconsin students.
Both are deep blue Democratic cities, especially Madison.

In that election, Biden Dane won by 260,185 to 78,800 and Milwaukee by 317.27 to 134,357.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said the recount is tantamount to “an attack on cities, minorities and places that have historically voted democratically. Don't let anyone fool you into thinking that these are irregularities. "
Neighboring Michigan faces further problems
The recount attempt follows developments in the neighboring state of Michigan, where the Wayne County Board of Canvassers initially refused to notarize the votes, broke along the party lines and then flew back within a few hours.
Wayne County is home to Michigan's largest city, Detroit.
According to commentators on the right, the reversal was allegedly triggered by threats from various Democrats.
