Did President Trump post a tweet that said it was "not fair for a president to leave office because of BAD votes" and that "the Supreme Court should decide the presidency"? No, that's not true: It is a fake tweet that was shared as real on social platforms just a day after the president made a real comment refusing to commit to a peaceful transition of power should he lose the election. The tweet, purportedly posted on the afternoon of September 23, 2020, is not on the president's Twitter timeline or in the archive of deleted tweets.
In my wildest dreams I never through this is the way American democracy would end. The more he speaks the desperation is apparent. He is frightened of losing because America knows he's committed of crimes, his family knows he's committed of crimes, the Republican party knows he's committed of crimes. This is not the party issues...ALL nations need to prepare to stop and fight this monster.... [What do you think?]
This is what the post looked like on Facebook at the time of writing:

This is the text fo the fake tweet:
Not fair for a president to leave office because of BAD votes! The Supreme Court should decide the presidency at every election. And the president should always be president because that's what the American people want! #yourpresident
At least a few people were taken in by the hoax, including the poster of this tweet:
You're not only a traitor but a complete joke. The entire world despises you along with the majority of America. You absolute blithering moron. "Bad votes"? Seriously? You sound like a four year old. Please hurry up and get out and take the foreigner with you. pic.twitter.com/RtZnJmFqjN-- Wolf in Sheeps Clothing (@starchildonfire) September 24, 2020
