US President Donald Trump’s another move over US elections results

Washington: US President Donald Trump on Wednesday night requested the Supreme Court to invalidate millions of votes in the key states that led to Joe Biden’s victory.

In a filing related to Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton’s, case against Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Michigan, the US President has requested the apex court to intervene and invalidate millions of votes in these battleground states.

In the statement, Donald Trump has alleged that these states used the novel coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to “ignore or suspend numerous state laws”.

He asked the Supreme Court to stop the four battleground states from using the “infirm 2020 general elections results” unless they are reviewed by the respective legislatures.

The filing comes just a day after the High Court denied a request by Pennsylvania Republicans to block certification of the election results.

Trump has been accusing democrats of “stealing” the elections held on November 2, in which former Vice-President Joe Biden handily defeated the President, mainly through postal ballots
