FEATURING MATT NELSON AND MONY RUIZ-VELASCO – President Donald Trump demanded on Twitter to “Stop the Count!” a remarkable utterance for a sitting president to ask that legitimately cast votes in an election be excluded. Pro-Trump supporters—some of them armed—are demonstrating outside a vote counting center in Detroit, Michigan saying “Stop the Count,” while others are in Maricopa County, Arizona demanding that votes be counted. Either way what Trump and his supporters want is for him to be declared the winner by any means necessary. Meanwhile progressive groups have organized rallies around the nation demanding to #CountEveryVote.
