President Trump has been pretty persistent in his demands for voting recounts claiming that there is no way he lost to Joe Biden.
Yesterday we reported on how, one of his recounts in Milwaukee actually led to Joe Biden gaining votes.
Now, a Trump-ordered recount in Dane County has had the same outcome - an increase in votes for Joe Biden.
Keep scrolling to check it out.
Trump has taken his false allegations to a new level...But now his ordered recounts seem to be backfiring...
Trump has been pretty persistent with his claims of a fraudulent election.

As we all know, Trump has been doing everything in his power to challenge the result for the election...The evidence has shown that he has resorted to downright denying the election and its results.
It seems as though Trump was clearly feeling the heat throughout the entire election...
via: GettyAs the counts went underway, he tried to temporarily stop vote-counting in Michigan and Pennsylvania, States where Joe Biden was projected to win.
He also called for a recount in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania...
via: GettyAnd then went on to threaten legal action against any State wherein Biden had won.
But, regardless of his many threats, the results were in after 4 long days of ballot counting.
via: GettyThe Associated Press called the race for Biden when Pennsylvania's twenty electoral votes put him over the 270-vote threshold needed to win the Electoral College.
Democrats all over the country quickly rejoiced at the news of Biden's historic win...
We just learned that Joe Biden has been elected 46th President of the United States, New York can’t stop cheering.… https://t.co/8mPwgcn0tx— Quentin A. Alexandre (@Quentin A. Alexandre)1604767345.0
However, Trump's reaction to Biden's win has been nothing short of outrageous.
via: GettyThough the president is a historically sore loser - he's very rarely had to admit defeat ever in his life - and has long made wild accusations against the Biden campaign team, people simply cannot believe his refusal to accept what has happened.
His first response to Biden's win was to release a lengthy and damning statement...In which he accused Biden and his team of rigging the entire election. As per Sky News, the statement read: “We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. “The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor. “In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process. Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media."
And the frenzied Twitter rants were quick to follow.In his rage, Trump took to the social media platform to dispute the result further, insisting that he was the one to have won.
He tried to take some small victory from the situation...And proudly Tweeted that he received a record-breaking number of votes. Whatever helps you sleep at night, Don.
However, more damning accusations were quick to follow...Trump seems set on the idea that Biden and his team rigged the entire election to play out in their favor, and made strong hints that something happened in the counting rooms that had "never happened before."
Did someone say sore loser?
Trump's flexibility has never been his forte. 🤔 #TrumpSoreLoser #TrumpMeltdown https://t.co/jGtBgLKYv5— Laure Om (@Laure Om)1604933547.0
It's now been over 2 weeks, and this hasn't swayed his attitude one bit...
via: GettyHe is somehow determined to prove that there has been something fishy going on all throughout the elections. But will he have the support of the American people?
Well, it seems only 3% of Americans that took a recent poll would back him up on that.Reuters and Ipsos recently conducted a study in which they found out some pretty interesting facts and people have had mixed opinions, to say the least!
So, according to the people they surveyed, only 3% of them think that Donald Trump won the election...
The poll also asked the question: Should Trump "concede defeat?"
But that doesn't look like it's happening anytime soon...Instead, Trump has resorted to firing his cybersecurity director after he declared this election as being one of the most secure to date.
Chris Krebs is the director of the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency...And he was in charge of making sure there were no signs of fraud across the country.
He recently issued an official statement, contradicting Trump's accusations...And it was announced that the election didn't contain any reported fraudulent activity from what they have observed. But of course, the president didn't like what he heard.
So Trump decided to do the only thing he could do... and that was to fire Krebs from his position.Trump tweeted: "The recent statement by Chris Krebs on the security of the 2020 Election was highly inaccurate, in that there were massive improprieties and fraud - including dead people voting, Poll Watchers not allowed into polling locations, 'glitches' in the voting machines which changed votes from Trump to Biden, late voting, and many more. Therefore, effective immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency."
Krebs then fired back at the president...By tweeting: "Honored to serve. We did it right. Defend Today, Secure Tomorrow."
Now Trump's recounts seem to be backfiring.
So the Trump campaign paid $3 million for a recount in Milwaukee and Madison. The Milwaukee recount just concluded.… https://t.co/mzEnXWtXsx— Brian Tyler Cohen (@Brian Tyler Cohen)1606520810.0
There wasn't much of a change.Milwaukee County concluded its recount of presidential ballots on Friday, finding only small changes in totals for one of the two counties that were recounting ballots. But Biden increased his votes in the county by 132 votes after county election officials recounted in excess of 450,000 votes.
And today in Dane County, a similar story occurred.
Recount in Wisconsin wrapped up with Dane County finished it task. Biden’s lead over Trump in Wisconsin grew by 87… https://t.co/xEoEaFppVN— Eric Lipton (@Eric Lipton)1606671508.0
