Trump Targets US Supreme Court, Says ‘Election Fraud Not Being Heard’
Trump alleged in a TV interview that his election lawsuits had been unfairly blocked. In a conversation with Fox News, President Trump said “he was trying to “put the evidence in and that the judges won’t allow us to do it”. We have so much evidence, he said. Ignoring the usual boundaries between his office and the judicial and law enforcement system, Trump complained that the judiciary and FBI are not helping him.

Raising questions about the Supreme Court, Trump said that if it does not interfere, then what is the point of Supreme Court? He said that we should have been heard by the Supreme Court as this election was “100% rigged”. Meanwhile, President-elect Joe Biden called to refrain from harsh rhetoric and to listen to each other again. “We are not enemies. we are Americans,” Biden said.
Despite Trump's attack on the legitimacy of the US election system, his legal team has yet to provide any evidence. Most US courts have dismissed cases filed by Trump. The most recent case was filed by a group of Trump supporters from Pennsylvania against Joe Biden's victory in the state, which the Supreme Court turned down.
It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, and listen to each other again.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) November 29, 2020
To make progress, we must stop treating our opponents as our enemy.
We are not enemies. We are Americans.
