特朗普竞选团队周三提交了一份请愿书,要求在威斯康星州进行部分重新计票。在威斯康星州,唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)总统落后候任总统乔·拜登(Joe Biden)2万多张选票,拜登显然是该州的胜利者。roa世界播


The campaign wired $3 million to the Wisconsin Election Commission for the long-shot bid to overturn the state results. In a statement, the campaign said it was asking for recounts in Milwaukee and Dane counties, mostly Democratic areas in which Biden defeated Trump by large margins. Biden captured more than 75 percent of the vote in Dane and more than 69 percent of the vote in Milwaukee. roa世界播

竞选团队向威斯康星州选举委员会电汇了300万美元,用于推翻该州选举结果的可能性很小的竞选活动。在一份声明中,竞选团队表示,他们正在要求密尔沃基和戴恩县重新计票,这些县大多是拜登以较大优势击败特朗普的民主党地区。拜登在丹麦获得了超过75%的选票,在密尔沃基获得了超过69%的选票。roa世界播


"These two counties were selected because they are the locations of the worst irregularities," the campaign said in a release, charging that they were areas where there were "illegally altered absentee ballots, illegally issued absentee ballots, and illegal advice given by government officials allowing Wisconsin’s Voter ID laws to be circumvented." roa世界播

“之所以选择这两个县,是因为它们是违规行为最严重的地方,”该竞选团队在一份新闻稿中说,并指责这两个地区存在“非法篡改缺席选票、非法签发缺席选票,以及政府官员提供非法建议,让威斯康星州的选民身份证法得以规避”。roa世界播

The Trump campaign, which had been soliciting donations for a recount, had until the close of business Wednesday to ask for it. The recount must be completed ahead of the state's Dec. 1 certification deadline. The solicitations to raise funds for recounts and election court challenges have included a disclaimer noting that 60 percent of the money will go to pay down debts from the general election and that the funds will go to a "recount account" only after those debts have been paid or people have maxed out on what they can contribute to Trump's re-election. The remaining 40 percent goes to the Republican National Committee. roa世界播

特朗普竞选团队一直在为重新计票募集捐款,直到周三营业结束才提出要求。重新计票必须在该州12月1日认证截止日期之前完成。为重新计票和选举法庭挑战筹集资金的征集包括一份免责声明,声明指出,60%的资金将用于偿还大选债务,只有在这些债务还清或人们为特朗普连任做出最大贡献后,这些资金才会进入“重新计票账户”。剩下的40%归共和党全国委员会所有。roa世界播

Green Party candidate Jill Stein filed for a statewide recount in the 2016 election after Trump won the state by almost 23,000 votes. Trump, the president-elect, had mocked those efforts, calling Stein's move a "scam" designed to “fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount." roa世界播

在特朗普以近2.3万张选票赢得该州后,绿党候选人吉尔·斯坦在2016年大选中申请在全州范围内重新计票。候任总统特朗普曾嘲笑这些努力,称斯坦的举动是一个“骗局”,目的是“让她的金库里塞满钱,她永远不会把大部分钱花在这个荒谬的重新计票上。”roa世界播


The "results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what Jill Stein is doing,” Trump said then. The president's son Eric had tweeted that the $3.5 million Stein's campaign was spending could have saved at least "5,000 Children's Lives." roa世界播

特朗普当时说:“这次选举的结果应该得到尊重,而不是受到质疑和虐待,而这正是吉尔·斯坦正在做的。”总统的儿子埃里克曾在推特上表示,斯坦的竞选支出为350万美元,本可以挽救至少“5000名儿童的生命”。roa世界播
