Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's personal attorney and the former mayor of New York City, has been aggressively fighting the election results in Pennsylvania and other battleground states that President-elect Joe Biden won. On Thursday, Giuliani was present during a Trump campaign press update on the campaign's increasingly absurd and reckless efforts to challenge the results.

Biden presently has 306 votes in the Electoral College and leads Trump by more than 5.8 million in the popular vote.
