Trump takes his electoral dispute in Pennsylvania to the Supreme Court

The campaign of the outgoing president of the United States, Donald Trump, took this Sunday to the Supreme Court his dispute over the electoral results in the key state of Pennsylvania, an issue on which he has already positioned himself against the highest court of that state.

In its lawsuit, the Trump campaign considers that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court exceeded in ruling against it and considers that “the result of the elections for the US Presidency is hanging by a thread”, something that is not true because Democrat Joe Biden won the November 3 election.

This action is part of the president’s strategy to reverse in the courts the result of the November elections, some attempts that have not been successful and they have only served to fuel divisions and mistrust in the democratic system in the country.

In addition, it has little chance of success, since on November 14, the US Electoral College confirmed Biden as the next president and ratified what the media had predicted more than a month ago: that Trump lost the election and he will have to leave the White House on January 20.

The goal of the Trump campaign is to invalidate in Pennsylvania hundreds of thousands of votes cast by mail, a method used by millions of Americans for the pandemic.

The president has not acknowledged his defeat in the elections by alleging, without evidence, that there was electoral fraud and has promised that will continue to litigate the election result in different courts in the US, although so far he has not been successful with any of his claims.

The Supreme Court has already ruled against Trump in a major lawsuit brought by Texas Republican leaders to invalidate the election result in the key states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, which the incumbent president won in 2016, but now won for Biden.

The U.S. Supreme Court is comprised of three progressive and six conservative judgesThe latter figure includes three magistrates appointed by Trump.
