US President Donald Trump said that the battle has only just begun, in a series of tweets commenting on the US Supreme Court ruling rejecting a lawsuit to invalidate the presidential election results in 4 swing states.
While supporters of Trump demonstrated in Washington, DC, demanding a second term for him, chanting slogans of rigging the elections, in which Democrat Joe Biden won.
Trump published a series of successive tweets on his Twitter account, commenting on the Supreme Court ruling rejecting the lawsuit to invalidate the election results in 4 states (Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Wisconsin), and criticized the court's decision, saying that it failed him, and that it "lacks wisdom and courage."
More than 50 federal and state courts ruled the validity of Biden's victory over Trump in the election, rejecting the lawsuits filed by Trump's legal team.
The US Supreme Court declares it explicit: the attempts of the outgoing President Trump to reverse his dismissal and stay in the White House and challenge the integrity of the elections are not subject to discussion.
Or in other words.
Goodbye, Mr. President.
You can appoint 3 judges at once to the court, but that does not mean that you will own its decision.
Biden won again!
