WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump asked the Supreme Court Wednesday to overturn the 2020 election results by tossing out votes cast in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and allowing state legislatures to appoint new electors.

Trump's legal papers sought to back up the claim by citing various election results from states and counties that he won and lost, then adding: "These things just don’t normally happen, and a large percentage of the American people know that something is deeply amiss."

But the president did not present evidence of fraud, asserting that "it is only necessary to demonstrate that the elections in the defendant states materially deviated from the 'manner' of choosing electors established by their respective state Legislatures."

And to back up his request to intervene in the long-shot lawsuit, he cited partisan polls purporting to show that Americans distrust the election results that gave Biden 306 electoral votes, the same number Trump won in 2016.

"The fact that nearly half of the country believes the election was stolen should come as no surprise," his attorneys wrote. "President Trump prevailed on nearly every historical indicia of success in presidential elections."

Donald Trump called on the Supreme Court to have the "courage" to overturn the results of the election , repeating claims he won the key swing states that tipped the projected results in favour of Joe Biden.

Paxton, a staunch Trump backer who has frequently sued in support of the president's policies, told the Supreme Court Tuesday that officials in the four states used "executive fiat or friendly lawsuits" to expand voting by mail and to weaken signature verification and witness requirements meant to protect ballot integrity.

"By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections,” the state attorney general said.

Officials in all four states had criticized Texas' filing as an irresponsible publicity stunt that recycled false and disproven claims of election irregularities.

"These fact-less, baseless 'lawsuits' to stir confusion and doubt in our systems are un-American, and we should not allow this circus to continue," Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said.
