Trump will continue to challenge election results in courts

Incumbent U.S. President Donald Trump has promised that he will continue to challenge the election results in the courts.

“No, this is not over,” Trump said on Fox & Friends. – We’re not stopping and we intend to keep moving forward. We have a lot of local lawsuits.” He reiterated that he has evidence of ballot stuffing and other fraud.

The U.S. president acknowledged that there is no time left for a legal battle of the outcome. “We’re trying to speed up the process as much as we can, but there’s a limit to that,” Trump explained. – We’ve been given very little time.” He declined to answer a question about whether he would attend the inauguration of Democrat Joe Biden.

Since the election, Trump and others in the Republican Party have filed more than 50 lawsuits challenging the election results. Only one case was able to prove wrongdoing, and it involved a small number of votes. The rest of the lawsuits were defeated, unopposed, dismissed or withdrawn.

On Saturday, December 12, Trump was defeated in Wisconsin. The court rejected requests for election reconsideration because the plaintiffs failed to show clear violations of local legislature directives. Earlier, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit filed by the state of Texas. The justices found no basis for Texas to challenge the election results in four other states.

On November 3, 2020, the next U.S. presidential election was held. According to media estimates, Democratic candidate Joe Biden won the number of electoral votes necessary to win, and beat Trump. Biden has already declared himself the elected president of the United States.

The electoral college vote is scheduled for Monday, December 14. Trump is expected to get 232 votes, Biden 306 votes. The votes will be counted by Congress on Jan. 6. The president-elect will be sworn in at the inauguration on January 20.
