US President Donald Trump has targeted federal agencies and courts as his new aiming points in his final attempts to turn the presidency.

Trump on Saturday launched tweets against the Department of Justice (DOJ), US attorney John Durham and the Supreme Court.

“Where the hell is the Durham Report? They spied on my campaign, colluded with Russia (and others), and got caught,” Trump tweeted in his attack against DOJ's Special Counsel  to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion probe.

Where the hell is the Durham Report? They spied on my campaign, colluded with Russia (and others), and got caught. Read the Horowitz Reports about Comey & McCabe. Even the Fake News @nytimes said “bad”. They tried it all, and failed, so now they are trying to steal the election!

The outgoing president, who is spending Christmas holidays in Florida, said federal agencies which refused to take his side in the disputed 2020 presidential election should be ashamed of themselves.  

The federal law enforcement agencies “should be ashamed” for condoning “the biggest SCAM” in US history, Trump tweeted.

Trump also took aim at the Supreme Court, calling it "totally incompetent and weak" and again questioning why it wouldn't hear a suit filed by Texas claiming election fraud, effectively ending legal challenges to the electoral process.

The U.S. Supreme Court has been totally incompetent and weak on the massive Election Fraud that took place in the 2020 Presidential Election. We have absolute PROOF, but they don’t want to see it - No “standing”, they say. If we have corrupt elections, we have no country!

Trump, who has promised to continue to fight the Democratic winner of the presidential election President-elect Joe Biden, continues to receive hundreds of millions of dollars from his backers.

He tweeted that with the help of Congress Republicans he might still be able to turn the election results.

“See everyone in D.C. on January 6th,” Trump tweeted, alluding to the date when some of his most ardent supporters in the House prepare to mount a long-shot challenge to overturn Biden’s win while Congress counts the Electoral College votes.

However, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has acknowledged Biden's win.

In one tweet, Trump also targeted McConnell and all the other Republicans who had conceded defeat, blasting them for having "NO FIGHT!" left in them.
