The US supreme court has unanimously rejected a baseless lawsuit filed by Texas seeking to overturn the presidential election result, dealing the biggest blow yet to Donald Trump's assault on democracy.

In a brief, one page order, all nine justices on America's highest court dismissed the longshot effort to throw out the vote counts in four states that the president lost: Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

The decision hammers another nail in the coffin of Trump's increasingly desperate effort to subvert the will of the people and deny Joe Biden the presidency.
