Despite the lack of evidence, Trump and his allies have persistently alleged that his defeat in the 2020 election to President Joe Biden was a result of widespread election fraud.

The conservative justice faced criticism after The New York Times reported that the flag, a symbol used by some of former President Donald Trump's supporters to challenge the election results, was observed on Alito's property in Alexandria, Virginia, on January 17, 2021, as depicted in photographs.
