There’s still no word on who will win the U.S. election, but one of Donald Trump’s lawsuits has been dismissed by a judge in Georgia.

On Thursday, November 5, CBC News reported that the incumbent president’s legal challenge in the state of Georgia had been dismissed by a judge.

The judge confirmed that a coastal county was following the appropriate state laws, with regard to processing absentee ballots.

Shortly after, Trump took to Twitter and wrote, “STOP THE FRAUD.”

An hour earlier, he’d tweeted, “All of the recent Biden claimed States will be legally challenged by us for Voter Fraud and State Election Fraud. Plenty of proof - just check out the Media. WE WILL WIN! America First!”

Almost immediately after, both tweets were flagged by Twitter as being “potentially misleading.”

The legal challenge from Trump’s team in Georgia was one of multiple lawsuits filed on Wednesday, including in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

As of Thursday afternoon, it was still too close to call a winner in the presidential election.

However, a report from CBC News projects that Democrat nominee Joe Biden holds 253 electoral college votes, while Trump has 214.
