Trump seen golfing as bid to overturn election stumbles

President Donald Trump faced a new setback on Saturday (November 21) in his desperate bid to overturn the U.S. election as a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by his campaign that sought to throw out millions of mail-in votes in Pennsylvania.

U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann ruled that Trump’s campaign had failed to demonstrate there had been widespread voting fraud in the Nov. 3 election, which Trump lost to Democrat Joe Biden.

“This Court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations,” Brann wrote.

Brann added that he “has no authority to take away the right to vote of even a single person, let alone millions of citizens.”

The lawsuit, spearheaded by Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, sought to stop officials from certifying Biden’s victory in the state, arguing that some counties wrongly allowed voters to fix errors on their mail ballots.

Earlier in the day, Trump took part in a virtual summit of the 20 biggest world economies before heading to play golf at his club near Sterling, Virginia.
