Biden Campaign Senior Advisor Ron Klain called the Trump Campaign’s legal fight to stop the vote count in Michigan, where the president is currently trailing Joe Biden by 119,755 votes, “baseless and stupid.”
“Tell me about the legal fights that the Trump campaign is already mounting to try to stop the vote count in both Michigan in Pennsylvania. We’ve heard expressions of confidence from your top legal guy Bob Bower saying this will be an embarrassing legal flop for the Trump campaign if they really try to stop these counts. Tell us about how you are planning on approaching that and how serious you view those legal challenges,” Rachel Maddow asked Klain Wednesday evening.
“Look Rachel, they are both baseless and stupid,” Klain responded.
“Their baseless in the sense that they have no legal basis at all. They’re stupid in the sense that one of the states where Trump is suing to stop the vote count is Michigan where he is behind, so if the vote count stops, we win,” he noted.
“So it is a particularly ridiculous legal strategy in the state of Michigan,” he added.

Klain also added that the Biden campaign believes when all votes are counted in Pennsylvania, Biden will emerge ahead with a 100,000 vote lead.
He also went on to say that the Biden campaign is confident that when every vote is tallied, Joe Biden will become the next president-elect of the United States of America.
