(TargetLiberty.org) – In a strongly-worded speech early Wednesday, November 4, President Trump vowed to go to the Supreme Court in a bid to secure an election victory. The commander-in-chief was responding to the fact that counting in several key states was abruptly halted as results showed him with a significant lead – and then hundreds of thousands of votes for rival Joe Biden were added to the total.
Speaking from the White House at around 2 a.m., Trump expressed his concerns at the way results suddenly started to change in key battleground states. Until around 1 a.m. the president seemed to be on track for a solid victory – then his leads started to shrink rapidly. Calling the election “a fraud on the American public,” and warning states against “finding” stacks of Biden votes, he vowed to go to the Supreme Court to safeguard the election result.
“We will be going to U.S. Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop.”

While the president can’t go directly to the Supreme Court, the nine justices could still end up deciding the result of the election if a case brought in a lower court ends up in front of them. At least two cases have already been filed, including one in Pennsylvania where Republicans are suing to prevent officials from “correcting” invalid ballots.
