Escalation? Trump Campaign to Hold Press Conference in Philadelphia at 3:30 ET
A short time ago, Fox 29 (Philadelphia) announced that the Trump campaign will be holding a press conference at 3:30 this afternoon in Philadelphia, PA. Eric Trump, Lara Trump, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and campaign manager Corey Lewandowski will be present.
According to CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins, earlier today, senior campaign officials held a conference call with reporters, but declined to answer any questions.
Collins also tweeted that the Trump campaign “announced it’s suing Michigan for “meaningful access” to counting locations “to observe the opening of ballots and the counting process…We also demand to review those ballots which were opened and counted while we did not have meaningful access.”
The dueling press conferences come as concern grows within the Trump campaign and among the President’s supporters over the ballot counting processes being followed in the states of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.
The Fox 29 article, published at 2:15 on Wednesday afternoon, also said that former Vice President Joe Biden would be speaking from Wilmington, DE at 2:30
As of 3 pm, Biden had not yet spoken.
Fox News has just called the state of Wisconsin for Biden and reported that they expect to hear from him soon.
Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, sent out a tweet shortly before 2 pm telling his followers that he is on his way to Philadelphia with a legal team. He wrote, “Massive cheating. @realDonald Trump up by 550,000 with 75% counted. Will not let Philly Democrat hacks steal it!”
