President Donald Trump will suffer a major loss if he follows through on threats to challenge election vote counts in the US Supreme Court. This warning came from a campaign lawyer for Democrat Joe Biden.
Former White House counsel Bob Bauer even said that Trump would be in for one of the most embarrassing defeats a president would have ever suffered before the highest court in the land if he asks it to invalidate ballots counted after Election Day.
With Biden getting closer to unseating Trump from the White House, incumbent President Donald Trump makes another extraordinary tweet where he says – ‘STOP THE COUNT!’.
President Trump also made a statement on Wednesday morning that he had won the US elections and accused Joe Biden of being a fraud. He also added that “he would go to the Supreme Court to dispute the counting of votes.”
ANY VOTE THAT CAME IN AFTER ELECTION DAY WILL NOT BE COUNTED!

Donald Trump’s public tweet can have no impact on the process of counting votes across the US. Until now, the vote count has been efficiently regulated. Trump’s campaign has filed legal action in many states to stop the vote counting. They have claimed a lack of transparency as their reason.
Moments later, President Trump made another tweet where he claimed that any vote that came in after Election Day would not be counted. Twitter also issued a note with the tweet that said, “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”
We will not rest until every vote is counted: Joe Biden
Joe Biden made a vow that his campaign would not “rest until every vote is counted” in the US Election. This is due to Trump attempting to seek Supreme Court intervention to stop the counting process. Trump’s rival, Biden has assured that it will face all the efforts by Trump’s campaign to go to the Supreme Court to prevent the tabulation of the ballots.
Donald Trump does not decide the outcome of this election and nor do I. The American people decide. That’s why we’ve launched the Biden Fight Fund — to ensure every vote is counted.

Joe Biden also took to Twitter and made his voice heard. In his tweet, he mentioned that his campaign has launched the Biden Fight Fund in an attempt to ensure that counting of every vote takes place. “Donald Trump does not decide the outcome of this election and nor do I. The American people decide,” said Biden in his tweet.
Biden’s campaign manager, Jen O’Malley Dillon has also called out Trump’s statements. She called his statements as “outrageous, unprecedented and incorrect.”
The 2020 US Presidential Elections are coming close to an outcome. Democrat Joe Biden seems moments away from taking over President Donald Trump. The results will be out soon.
