What is there to do?

We have seen Trump stating that we may never actually see the count of our votes during this elections. so.
What will happen to this country if that comes to pass? Are there any laws that says what to do next?  Does that mean that he will stay as long as he wants to stay? Who and what needs to happen? 

Will the supreme court have to intervene? and  does the Constitution has any amendments that deal with anything like this?

The 20th Amendment states the president and vice president must leave office on January 20.

 

So let's say the votes haven't been counted yet.  That would impact votes for Congress, too.  Not just the president.  So the terms of every Congress member who's up for reelection would end on January 3.  


So the President Pro Tempore is next in line.  Who's Chuck Grassley and he's not up for re-election, so he'd still be there on January 20.

I just read on Wikipedia that Chuck is the president pro tempore and is third in line after the VP and the Speaker of the house. so what is the really line of succession?
