Trump challenged Biden's victory on grounds that the electoral process was marred with a series of irregularities that gave the Democratic party candidate an advantage over him.

Mailed-in ballots

He severally, without evidence, claimed mailed-in ballots were manipulated in most of the states that were won by Biden, among them Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

The president alleged he had sufficient and compelling evidence to overturn Biden's victory which he repeatedly termed as a "sham".

However, things started falling apart when the court began to probe his allegations.

Unfounded allegations

Most of the claims were unfounded, unverified and had no legal basis to warrant the court's consideration.

Angered by the finding of the judges, Trump trooped to his Twitter handle on Saturday, December and slammed the court for letting him down and lacking wisdom and courage to make the bold decision.

"The Supreme Court really let us down. No Wisdom, No Courage," he tweeted.

In subsequent posts, the US president tore into the Supreme Court for declining to hear his case despite being the incumbent president and having garnered more votes than any other sitting president in the history of America, but still lost.

So, you’re the President of the United States, and you just went through an election where you got more votes than any sitting President in history, by far - and purportedly lost. You can’t get “standing” before the Supreme Court, so you “intervene” with wonderful states...," lamented Trump.

The Republican leader suffered a series of setbacks in his quest to overturn Biden's victory through the Supreme.

Things started getting thick when one of his key witnesses in Georgia recanted his witness statement and admitted to fabricating and manufacturing evidence.

Richard Hopkins denied claims of widespread irregularities with the mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania as he had initially alleged.

A day later, one of the president's most trusted law firms also pulled out of the election case.

Porter Wright Morris and Arthur law firm was representing the embattled president in Pennsylvania but withdrew its legal service without giving an explanation.

The Ohio-based law firm had alleged the use of mail-in ballots had created an illegal two-tiered voting system in Pennsylvania state.
