The refusal of the Trump campaign to accept defeat in the 2020 Presidential election even extended to backing the case that Texas and 17 states(Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia) brought to overturn the result in 4 other states, namely Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The case was brought by the Texan Attorney General, Ken Paxton, who claimed that votes that were cast by post and other ways should be discarded. Trump publically seemed convinced that this case provided the best opportunity of overturning the majorities that Biden received in those states.

The 4 states contested the case brought by Texas, and on Friday(12/11/20) the Supreme Court quickly reached its decision and said, “The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution”. Yet again Trump and his allies had failed to produce evidence of electoral fraud, and no reason to reverse the vote. The judges rejected the case by ruling that Texas does not have the authority to interfere in how any of the other states ran their general and Presidential elections.
