Wisconsin started recounts Friday in Milwaukee and Dane counties, the state's most populous counties with mostly liberal voters, after President-elect Joe Biden won the state by a narrow margin.

A pair of Michigan Republican leaders delivered another blow when they declared on Friday night after a White House meeting with Trump: "We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan".

Trump net about 1,200 additional votes because of previously uncounted ballots, can not occur in the state's coming runoff elections for U.S. Senate.

The White House said earlier that it was "not an advocacy meeting" and simply part of the president's routine meetings with state lawmakers across the country, although he has conducted very few engagements since the election.

With the door slammed shut in Georgia and having been stung by a series of court defeats, the Trump team is resting its hopes on getting Republican-controlled legislatures in other battleground states won by Biden to set aside the results and declare Trump the victor, according to three people familiar with the plan.

"The candidates who win the most votes win elections and Michigan's electoral votes", they added, saying they used the meeting with Trump to press him for more pandemic aid money for their state. State election officials have said there is no evidence of widespread election fraud or irregularity.

"It's an abuse of office, it's an open attempt to intimidate election officials, it's absolutely appalling", Bob Bauer, a legal adviser to the Biden campaign, told reporters.

The accounts will then be reset to zero tweets and transferred to the incoming Biden White House that day.

"Let us not forget the inexcusable transition or lack thereof that President Trump had to endure in 2016 and four years into his presidency".

Mr. Kemp, a Republican, decried voting discrepancies that were discovered in a statewide audit but said he was bound by law to affirm the certification from Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

"As we did for the presidential transition in 2017, this process is being done in close consultation with the National Archives and Records Administration", Pacilio said.

"I live by the motto that numbers don't lie".

The hand tally stemmed from an audit required by a new state law and wasn't in response to any suspected problems with the state's results or an official recount request.

"Like other Republicans, I'm disappointed our candidate didn't win Georgia's electoral vote".

Mr Trump Jnr is the latest member of the president's family to become infected with a virus that has killed more than 250,000 Americans and infected almost 12 million others.
