Trump went through so many different tactics on his call with the Georgia Secretary of State, it is clear he simply wants something to work.
But as many have pointed out, even if he flipped the 16 electoral votes of Georgia, he would STILL LOSE — 290 to 248. In the past couple of weeks, there has not been a peep out of other states — and most of those with close (and potentially contested) outcomes have Democratic Secretaries of State, who would have no reason to conceal such contact.
I’d guess he’s working to flip one state as a psychic balm and to fuel a narrative of “I WAS ROBBED.”
Thus far, there have been few specific costs to the Trump moves and a variety of benefits.
As to why the airport in Scotland was alerted … who knows.
