Deadlines on road to Biden’s inauguration

By Jordi Bou

January 20, 2021 - As outgoing U.S. president Donald Trump continues to dispute his election loss, a series of legal challenges is expected to further cement Democrat Joe Biden’s victory.

President Donald Trump and his allies are taking increasingly frantic steps to subvert the results of the 2020 election, including summoning state legislators to the White House as part of a longshot bid to overturn Joe Biden’s victory.

Election law experts see it as the last, dying gasps of the Trump campaign and say Biden is certain to walk into the Oval Office come January. But there is great concern that Trump's effort is doing real damage to public faith in the integrity of U.S. elections.

Biden leads by 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232 as states work to certify their results at least six days before the Electoral College convenes on Dec 14.
