Nevada’s Supreme Court rejects Trump’s appeal to overturn election results

Nevada’s Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from Donald Trump’s campaign to overturn the election results of the state.

This marks one of the many unsuccessful attempts made by Donald Trump’s team to overturn the result of the election following the success of Democrat Joe Biden.

Although Mr Trump claims that the result was fraudulent, no court has found any evidence to support his claim.

The Nevada Supreme Court stated, “We also are not convinced that the district court erred in applying a burden of proof by clear and convincing evidence, as supported by the cases cited in the district court’s order,”. On the 14th of December, the electors will meet to formalise the outcome of the election between Mr Biden and Mr Trump.”
