Wisconsin reports that Trump's campaign cost $ 3 million and 87 additional ballots were found for BIDEN – confirming that he won Key Swing State with more than 20,000 votes
- Recounts in two of Wisconsin's largest and most democratic counties further cemented Joe Biden's victory in swing state
- The Milwaukee and Dane Counties recounts resulted in an additional 87 votes for Biden
- Under Wisconsin law, the president's campaign that required the recounts had to pay the $ 3 million bill
Wisconsin cemented Joe Biden's victory in battlefield state on Sunday in two county reports that added 87 votes to its lead over President Donald Trump.
The recounts required by Trump's re-election campaign in two of Wisconsin's most populous and democratic counties, Milwaukee and Dane Counties, ended on Friday and Sunday, respectively.
Wisconsin law requires the campaign requesting the recount to pay the bill, meaning the Trump campaign is $ 3 million and only promotes Biden's victory over the president.
In total, Biden received 257 votes on Trump's 125, which gave him a net 87 more votes than he originally held over Trump.
This further undermines Trump's attempt to scrap the election results, as he claims widespread election fraud and election irregularities hurt him in his race against Biden.

Joe Biden currently holds 306 electoral college votes, making him the clear winner of the presidential election
78-year-old Biden won the November 3 presidential election with 306 electoral college votes to Trump's 232. A presidential candidate needs 270 electoral college votes to win.
The former vice president also leads the referendum with more than six million votes.
After the recount ended, Milwaukee County Administrator George Christenson said, "The recount shows what we already know: the Milwaukee County elections are fair, transparent, accurate and safe."
The Trump campaign is still expected to pose a legal challenge to the overall results in Wisconsin, but time is running out as the state will confirm its presidential result on Tuesday.
Trump won Wisconsin, a rust belt swing state, by just 0.7 percent in 2016.
The Wisconsin Election Commission will meet Tuesday to vote on confirming the election results. The chair of the six-member panel, who is a Democrat, said the state will endeavor to confirm the state's win for Biden.
The president continues to plan legal battles to prevent Wisconsin from moving forward.
The three Republicans on the state's six-member electoral commission could attempt to delay certification with a deadlock as the process unfolds.
"The Wisconsin recount is not about finding errors in the count, it is about finding people who voted illegally. This case will be brought up on Monday or Tuesday after the recount is complete," Trump wrote in a tweet on Saturday.
He added, without providing evidence, “We have found many illegal voices. Hold on! & # 39;
The Wisconsin blow is just another in a series of losses to Trump's struggle to undo his loss.
His efforts to prevent Michigan officials from confirming the vote earlier this month failed.
A handcount of ballots in Georgia confirmed Biden's victory there, and two new court rulings in Pennsylvania late last week denied the president's attempts to stop voting there.
Four out of six states that Trump has tried to stop the certification process have already received certification, and on Monday Arizona will finalize the results there too.
