The court stated that the Trump campaign saying the US presidential election is unfair does not mean the allegation is true.

One of the judges, Stephanos Bibas said:

"Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here"

The judges noted that the campaign could not prove that any ballot was fraudulent or cast by an illegal voter nor could it show that Trump's votes were treated worse than Biden its votes.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has questioned a report which stated that Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, garnered 80 million votes in the US election.

Trump in a tweet on Thursday, November 26, argued that there was no way Biden got such huge number of votes.

He alleged that the report about Biden’s win was an indication that the US election was rigged.
