Trump suffers fresh jolt as court rejects Pennsylvania lawsuit

The judgement came four days after Pennsylvania certified Trump’s Democratic rival Joe Biden as the winner in the state which has 20 electoral college votes

WASHINGTON: In a fresh setback to US President Donald Trump’s efforts to reverse the November 3 presidential election result in the battleground state of Pennsylvania, a court has dismissed a lawsuit filed by his team, observing that “voters, not lawyers choose the president.”

The judgement came four days after Pennsylvania certified Trump’s Democratic rival, Joe Biden, as the winner in the state which has 20 electoral college votes.

Trump, a Republican, has refused to accept defeat in the November 3 presidential election, and told reporters on Thursday that it would be “hard” to concede to Biden, a Democrat.

The President has said that he would leave the White House if the Electoral College declares Biden as the winner but made clear he is not prepared to “concede” the election.

He has launched a slew of lawsuits in key states but has not provided any evidence to back his claims of electoral fraud. Many of the lawsuits have been dismissed by courts.

The three-judge panel of the 3rd US Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday upheld a previous ruling that dismissed the Trump campaign’s request for an injunction in the case in Pennsylvania to challenge the election results and slammed the lawsuit.
