WASHINGTON (AP) — Even though Monday seemed like the end of President Donald Trump's relentless challenges to the election, his claims are coming back.

Despite dozens of legal and procedural setbacks, his campaign keeps filing new challenges that have no hope of succeeding and making fresh, unfounded claims of fraud. But that's the point.

Trump's strategy wasn't to change the outcome, but to create a host of phantom claims about the 2020 presidential race that would infect the nation with doubt, even though the winner was clear and there has been no evidence of mass voter fraud.
