President Donald Trump's campaign was handed a unanimous defeat Friday at the Michigan Supreme Court, which declined to hear an appeal about how absentee ballots were handled in Detroit as well as other issues.

The court steered it aside with a two-sentence order, the latest in a string of unsuccessful cases challenging how the Nov. 3 election was handled.

Joe Biden’s 154,000-vote victory in Michigan was certified by the Board of State Canvassers on Nov. 23.

The president's campaign claimed the Republican Party wasn't allowed to get an appropriate number of observers inside a Detroit convention center where absentee ballots were counted. The campaign also wanted access to video of ballot drop boxes. A judge and the Michigan appeals court ruled against Trump.
