Donald Trump had assured that it was “the big one”. But on Friday, the political earthquake he hoped for did not occur. The Supreme Court of the United States refused to take up an appeal filed by Texas and supported by the American president, which sought to block the attribution of the grand voters of four states won by Joe Biden. The latter should now logically be elected by the electoral college, which meets on Monday.

Even though allies of Donald Trump may attempt to challenge the results in Congress on January 6, they do not have enough votes in the House to do so. And it is Joe Biden who will be sworn in to become the 46th President of the United States on January 20.
