Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, in a neck-and-neck race with Donald Trump, on Wednesday morning said the latter faces an "embarrassing defeat" if he fights vote in the Supreme Court.
Trump will suffer a harsh loss if he follows through on threats to challenge election vote counts in the US Supreme Court, a lawyer for Biden's campaign warned.
Trump "will be in for one of the most embarrassing defeats a president ever suffered before the highest court in the land" if he asks it to invalidate ballots counted after Election Day, said former White House counsel Bob Bauer.
Biden also vowed that his campaign would not "rest until every vote is counted" in the US election after Trump sought Supreme Court intervention to halt the counting process.
"We won't rest until everyone's vote is counted," Trump's Democrat rival Biden said on Twitter.
Biden's campaign earlier said it will fight any efforts by Trump's campaign to go to the Supreme Court to prevent ballots from being tabulated.
In a statement, Biden campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon called Trump's statement that he will “be going to the US Supreme Court” and that he wants “all voting to stop” “outrageous, unprecedented and incorrect”.
