US President Donald Trump's latest tweet states "He won" referring to Joe Biden. But this tweet was not to congratulate Biden, but to spread some more misinformation as Trump continued to make false claims regarding the election results. But netizens are taking the tweet as Trump accepting that Biden has won, even if he meant to downplay his opponent.
"He won because the Election was Rigged," Trump's tweet stated. "NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation and bum equipment that couldn't even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake and Silent Media, and more," Trump tweeted.
Twitter, Facebook Flagging Trump's Posts
Twitter took a note of it and flagged the tweet with warning: "This claim about election fraud is disputed." In fact, most of the social media posts by Trump especially after election results were announced are being flagged by Twitter and Facebook due to unsubstantiated nature of the claims.
His latest claim of no observers or vote watchers is easily disputed because there are footages of Republican watchers and observers in the polling booths. There are witnesses who have watched them in the polling booth.
Recently, Trump even tried to incite the DC police by calling ANTIFA scum and asking DC police not to hold back. Trump even had declared himself a winner on social media, even when millions of votes were still waiting to be counted.
