Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said Thursday that President Trump’s calls to the Republican members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers was “improper. ”

Benson called Trump’s invitation to Michigan Republican legislators “at the very least improper,” but added, “I also have a lot of faith in those on both sides of the aisle of our leaders here in Michigan to fulfill the role, the role that they’ve already said they will fulfill under the law to affirm the will of the people and ensure that the votes that have been counted as valid will be in our official canvass that is approved by the State Board of Canvassers on Monday. ”
