Donald Trump Touts Nevada Inspection as Key States Certify Joe Biden Win

President Donald Trump has spoken of elections equipment in Nevada used for the 2020 vote being inspected as he continues to push his fraud claims while major states certify Joe Biden's win.

The president previously made allegations of irregularities in Nevada and tweeted shortly after midnight about equipment being examined in Clark County.

"A judge in Nevada has ordered Clark County officials to allow an inspection of the elections equipment and sealed containers used in the 2020 election by 1:00 P.M. tomorrow," he tweeted.

Trump did not specify further details on the order. Newsweek has contacted the Trump campaign for further comment.

Attorney Sidney Powell, who was distanced from the Trump campaign but continues to pursue election-related lawsuits, spoke about her former colleague Jess Binnall getting a "discovery order" in Nevada when asked by Fox News' Sean Hannity if people had been able to examine Dominion voting machines.

Binnall retweeted the president's message about equipment inspection. Newsweek has contacted Binnall for comment on the order mentioned by Powell.

Trump's comments on Nevada come with Wisconsin and Arizona having certified their election results, both of which were Biden wins. Trump's campaign has made allegations of foul play in each of those states.

Nevada certified its results previously. Officials in the state said there has been no evidence of widespread voter fraud and that the election was conducted fairly.

News network calls have seen Biden deemed the presidential election winner, though Trump continues to dispute this even as states certify their outcomes.

According to the Associated Press' calls, Biden has won 306 Electoral College votes—surpassing the 270 majority needed for victory. Thus far, Trump and his allies' lawsuits have failed to alter the outcomes in any states.

In a previous statement on certifications, Trump 2020 Senior Legal Adviser Jenna Ellis said: "Certification by state officials is simply a procedural step. We are going to continue combatting election fraud around the country as we fight to count all the legal votes. Americans must be assured that the final results are fair and legitimate."

Newsweek has contacted the Trump campaign for further comment on states certifying results.

Biden has labeled Trump's refusal to concede as "an embarrassment," and has focussed on the transition process.

Biden has been appointing key staff and the General Services Administration has also signed off on access to resources facilitating the process.
