Donald Trump admits fight to overturn US election ‘probably’ won’t reach Supreme Court

US President Donald Trump has used his first post-election TV interview to continue to air unproven allegations of widespread voter fraud.

Since his loss to Democratic challenger Joe Biden, Mr Trump campaign and legal team have also lost dozens of lawsuits by failing to convince judges of election irregularities in states including Michigan, Georgia, Arizona and Nevada.

Speaking to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo by telephone from the presidential retreat at Camp David, Mr Trump conceded the fight to overturn these rulings “probably” won’t reach the Supreme Court.

“I’ve got the best Supreme Court advocates, lawyers, that want to argue the case if it gets there, but they said it’s very hard to get a case up there,” Trump said.

He also repeated unproved claims he was a victim of widespread voter fraud.

“We won the race,” Mr Trump told Bartiromo. “This was corruption. Because we got far more votes than him.”

When asked to cite specific evidence to prove this claim, Mr Trump failed.

Mr Trump said he would continue to fight the results of the election, saying “my mind will not change in six months”.

His comments appeared to signal his intention to continue contesting the outcome even after he leaves office. Aides say he has discussed several media ventures to keep him in the spotlight before a potential 2024 White House bid.

Mr Biden won the presidential election with 306 electoral college votes — many more than the 270 required — to Mr Trump’s 232. Mr Biden also leads Mr Trump by more than six million in the popular vote.
