DETROIT – The Michigan Welfare Rights Organization and three Detroit residents filed a lawsuit against President Trump and his campaign Friday, arguing that the campaign is seeking to disenfranchise Black voters in their attempt to block the certification of Michigan votes -- especially those from Wayne County.
The plaintiffs argue that Trump and his team have been putting pressure on state and local officials to delay the certification of votes in Michigan. The Board of State Canvassers is scheduled to meet on Monday to potentially certify Michigan votes.
