Despite dozens of court defeats, incumbent US President Donald Trump is pressing ahead with a legal fight against his presidential election defeat. Trump’s campaign team said on Sunday it had filed a petition with the Supreme Court to have Pennsylvania state supreme court decisions on the election reviewed and overturned.
The Trump camp claims the court there violated constitutional rights by making several decisions on absentee voting. As a result, they say, large numbers of invalid votes were counted in the state. This objection with regard to Pennsylvania is unlikely to be very promising – the Trump camp can not shake the election outcome as a whole anyway.
The Republican had lost pass away presidential election in early November by a wide margin against Democrat Joe Biden. So far, however, Trump has not conceded defeat in the election, instead adamantly claiming that he was deprived of victory by massive fraud.
Neither Trump nor his lawyers or supporters presented any substantive evidence for these claims. More than 50 lawsuits filed by the Trump camp have been shot down so far, two of them in the Supreme Court.
