Trump says election challenges 'not over'


President Trump said in an interview broadcast early Sunday that his attempts to overturn the vote are “not over.”

In the “Fox & Friends Weekend” interview recorded Saturday, Brian Kilmeade asked the president whether his challenges to election results were “over” after the Supreme Court on Friday rejected a Texas lawsuit seeking to toss the results in four states.

“No, it’s not over. We keep going. And we’re going to continue to go forward,” the president replied.

Trump also continued his broadsides against Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) for refusing to overturn Biden’s victory in the state, accusing him of harming Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R) and David Perdue (R) in their upcoming Jan. 5 runoffs, which will determine control of the Senate.

“We have a governor, Republican governor that’s worse than a Democrat, he’s terrible and he’s hurting Kelly and David very badly, the senators that are terrific people,” Trump added.

Kilmeade went on to ask how Monday's meeting of the Electoral College, which is expected to elect Joe Biden as the next president, and Congress counting their votes on Jan. 6 would affect Trump’s efforts. 

“I don’t know. We’re going to speed it up as much as we can. But you can only go so fast. They give us very little time,” Trump said, going on to repeat conspiracy theories about widespread voter fraud. Experts, local officials and Attorney General Bill Barr have all said there is no indication of widespread fraud in the 2020 election.

Asked by Kilmeade if his legal team had proven election fraud, the president responded that “we never get a chance to prove it because a judge will say, 'well, I’m sorry you don’t have standing.' ”

Kilmeade later challenged Trump on the lack of proof of widespread fraud, with Trump insisting “we’ve proven it” without elaborating.

“But no judge has had the courage including the Supreme Court. I am so disappointed in them. No judge including the Supreme Court of the United States has had the courage to allow it to be heard,” he added.
