Donald Trump to ask for vote recount in Wisconsin

Donald Trump's campaign manager, Bill Stepien, announced that the president will ask for a recount of the votes in Wisconsin, one of the key states in the election, where his rival Joe Biden shows a small advantage, according to the partial results, announced his campaign manager.

"There have been reports of irregularities in several counties in Wisconsin that raise serious questions about the validity of the results," Campaign Manager Bill Stepien said in a statement.

"The president is within the threshold to request a recount and we will do so immediately."

Wisconsin is one of the few states where the fate of US elections is now decided. With 94 percent of the ballots counted, Biden beats Trump there by about 20,000 votes.

Although that represents a small portion of the more than 3.2 million total votes cast in the state, the Republican mogul may have a hard time tracing that number on a new ballot.

A recount in Wisconsin during the 2016 presidential election, in which Trump claimed victory in this state over Democrat Hillary Clinton, ended with only 131 additional votes for Trump.

With Trump and Biden head-to-head in the rest of the country, the decisive states in contention have come down to Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, Nevada, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
