The U.S. presidential election continues to count, and Trump’s current electoral votes are behind Biden. According to foreign media analysis, in the unlikely event that Trump filed an election lawsuit after the U.S. presidential election. If the lawsuit is delayed after January 20, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may take over the post of President.
In the past six months, Trump has repeatedly stated that he refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of duties. He said, “Such election results are incredible.” In an interview with Trump in July, Fox News also asked whether he would be willing to accept the election results, but received a reply from Trump that “it depends on the situation and will not easily agree or disagree.”
Moreover, according to the latest news from CNBC, election officials in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan also have confirmed that they will not announce the winners on the evening of the election day.
President Nancy Pelosi?
According to the report analysis, Trump may use election fraud to confuse public opinion and even file an election lawsuit. If the lawsuit continues after January 20th, neither Trump nor Biden will be able to declare victory. Besides, if neither party is sworn in as president, according to the US Constitution, the Speaker of the House of Representatives will resign as a representative of Congress to take over as President. This means that the Speaker of the House of Representatives Pelosi will act as the president, and it may not be the result that Trump wants.
Also, Pelosi has stated earlier that if the Democratic Party continues to maintain a majority of seats in the House of Representatives in the general election, it will seek re-election as speaker.
