U.S. election: Trump refuses to admit defeat, what can he do?
Democrat Biden has become the president-elect of the United States, but the current President Trump still plans to challenge the election results in some key states.
Earlier on November 4, Trump claimed that there was voting fraud and said: "We will appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States."
If the election result is contested, his legal team will be asked to contest it in a state court. The state judge needs to respond to this challenge and order a recount. Only then can the Supreme Court be asked to consider it.
So far, the 2000 election is the only ruling of the US Supreme Court.
That year, Democrat Al Gore lost to Florida by 537 votes in the presidential election, a total of 6 million votes. Subsequently, a controversial recount process lasted for more than a month, until the Supreme Court ruled that the recount should be stopped and the Republican candidate George W Bush became the President of the United States.
