Former Vice President Al Gore is calling for Americans who continue to rally behind President Donald Trump's failed reelection bid to "put the country first."

The comments come just days after the Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit from Texas' attorney general to block the ballots of millions of voters in battleground states that went in favor of President-elect Joe Biden.

"Well, many conservative and republican legal scholars have described that lawsuit as ridiculous and really unintelligible," Gore said during an interview on CNN. "Of course, the Supreme Court summarily dismissed it with all of the Supreme Court justices nominated by President Trump, dismissing it as well. So that lawsuit got the result that it deserved."

"I would encourage those who are still supporting the lost cause of President Trump's re-election to put the country first," Gore said.

Gore conceded the 2000 election to George W. Bush 20 years ago.

He says when electors cast votes for Biden on Monday it will be "a point at which some of those who have hung on will give up the ghost."
