One can only be president for a maximum of 10 years or two terms whichever is less.
The states run the election, but the feds verify the results.
If he simply fails to legally acknowledge them as valid?

It is not whichever is less because it would always be two terms for a total of 8.
One could become president for up to two years by order of succession in the event of incapacitation of the president-elect they then could go on to be officially elected as president with the ability for re-election. That is how one could possibly serve a total of 10 years as president.

He cannot run for another term, HOWEVER, under Directive 51 snuck into the Patriot Act, he can remain in office to assure there is a stability in government in the event of a large war or any event where there is an enormous loss of lives (asteroid,plague,etc) or martial law is declared.
