(PoliticalLookout.com)- President Donald Trump issued a troubling statement to America last week, reacting to the decision by the Supreme Court not to hear a case brought by the state of Texas against Pennsylvania regarding the unconstitutionality of its mail-in ballot system.
“The Supreme Court had ZERO interest in the merits of the greatest voter fraud ever perpetrated on the United States of America,” the president said on Twitter.
The Supreme Court had ZERO interest in the merits of the greatest voter fraud ever perpetrated on the United States of America. All they were interested in is “standing”, which makes it very difficult for the President to present a case on the merits. 75,000,000 votes!

The president lamented the court’s focus on procedural matters rather than the massive allegations – and overwhelming evidence – that fraud took place in battleground states in the 2020 presidential election.
“All they were interested in is ‘standing,’ which makes it very difficult for the President to present a case on the merits. 75,000,000 votes!” the president added.
Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito wrote dissenting opinions on the decision not to hear the case, though interestingly said that they probably would not have offered any legal relief in the case. That means even if they found there to be evidence of fraud, they would have been unlikely to issue any order that would have changed the result of the election.
It makes you wonder why not…
The justices also wrote that the Supreme Court is obligated to hear suits between states – something the three justices nominated by President Donald Trump evidently did not agree with.
The Texas suit was joined by more than a dozen other states after it was filed, alleging that Pennsylvania and other battleground states had used unconstitutional mail-in ballot rules to facilitate their election. President Donald Trump and his legal counsel intervened in the case after it was filed.
Last Friday, the court ruled that the state of Texas was unable to show “judicially cognizable” interest in how Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, and Wisconsin conducted their elections…despite their misconduct nullifying the legal votes of millions of other voters in states across America.
Speaking to Newsmax at the weekend, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is President Trump’s personal attorney, said, “we’re not finished. Believe me.”
