MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Former US President Donald Trump has called a rally for Tuesday in an effort to again revisit the results of last year's presidential election won by his Democrat rival, Joe Biden.
"Big Michigan Rally coming up on Oct. 12th, on the Capitol steps in Lansing, where Patriots will demand a Forensic Audit of the 2020 Presidential Election Scam", he said in a statement.
Trump insisted that "voter fraud" was real, even though legal challenges against vote results in several states have so far failed to convince judges that the ballot was rigged.
The Michigan State Capitol identified the organizers as the Election Integrity Fund, a nonprofit "concerned with attempts to subvert the integrity of our elections". The anticipated number of attendees stands at 100.

US President Joe Biden was confirmed the winner of the November 2020 presidential election by the Electoral College on 14 December. However, Trump has been insisting that major voter fraud took place during the election, pointing to multiple inconsistencies and reports of electoral violations.
