‘Never even given our day in Court!’ Trump fumes after SCOTUS refuses to hear Texas AG’s bid to overturn Biden’s election victory as he calls for Republican governors of Arizona and Georgia to be voted out

  • Trump reacted with fury after Supreme Court on Friday refused to hear the case
  • Seven justices declined to hear the case, ending the bid to overturn election 
  • Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton had led 17 states in the longshot legal bid
  • Trump called the decision ‘a great and disgraceful miscarriage of justice’
  • Also lashed out at Republican governors of states he lost, Georgia and Arizona

President Donald Trump has lashed out after the Supreme Court refused to hear the lawsuit spearheaded by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton that sought to invalidate the election results in four other states.

The Supreme Court on Friday refused to hear the lawsuit to overturn Joe Biden‘s election victory, ending an attempt to argue legal issues that were rejected by state and federal judges before the nation´s highest court.  

Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito said they would have heard the case but that they would have refused to overturn the election result. The other seven justices declined to hear the case, ending the legal bid.

‘This is a great and disgraceful miscarriage of justice. The people of the United States were cheated, and our Country disgraced. Never even given our day in Court!’ Trump tweeted on Saturday morning from the White House.

‘I WON THE ELECTION IN A LANDSLIDE, but remember, I only think in terms of legal votes, not all of the fake voters and fraud that miraculously floated in from everywhere! What a disgrace!’ he continued.

Trump also lashed out at the Republican governors of Georgia and Arizona, two states that he won in 2016 but lost this year. 

‘Who is a worse governor, @BrianKempGA of Georgia or @dougducey of Arizona???’ he asked. 

‘These are two RINO Republicans who fought against me and the Republican Party harder than any Democrat. They allowed states that I won easily to be stolen. Never forget, vote them out of office!’ continued Trump.

More than 50 federal and state court rulings have upheld Biden´s victory over Trump. 

Trump has refused to concede defeat, alleging without evidence that he was denied victory by massive fraud. 

On Saturday, Trump’s supporters are returning to Washington for a pair of rallies to back his desperate efforts to subvert the election that he lost.

One of the rallies will be at Freedom Plaza downtown and the other nearby on the National Mall. 

The event on the mall, dubbed the Jericho March, is described on its website as a several-hour ‘prayer rally’ with a series of sermons and speakers ‘praying for the walls of corruption and election fraud to fall down.’ 

Organizers of the Freedom Plaza rally seem intent on avoiding confrontations, telling demonstrators to avoid certain hotels and marking off large chunks of downtown Washington as a ‘no-go zone.’ 

The rallies Saturday come a month after a pro-Trump demonstration that drew at least 10,000 people to the capital. 

That day began with Trump thrilling supporters when his motorcade passed by and ended with scattered clashes between his loyalists and local activists near Black Lives Matter Plaza near the White House.
