US election: Uncertainty as President Trump reportedly vows not to leave White House

The US apex court on Friday, December 11, ruled that the suit which was filed by Texas' attorney general, Ken Paxton, and supported by Trump did not have any legal standing.

It would be recalled that the Republican candidate challenged the election of Biden as America's president-elect on grounds that the electoral process was marred with irregularities.

The incumbent president had insisted that Biden won because the election was rigged days after the November 3 presidential election.

Trump who also finally acknowledged that his rival won made this position known in a tweet he posted on his Twitter page on Sunday, November 15.

The president in another couple of tweets disclosed that he will not concede defeat to Biden, further alleging that the candidate of the Democratic Party only won "in the eyes of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA".
