Joe Biden is the 46th President of the United States.
We already know or at the very least presumed prior to Election day that Donald Trump is a sore loser. Because with an ego so abnormally large, how could you find a shred of humility in the face of adversity, after all, we are speaking about the man that told the American people, the US had more COVID-19 cases because it was testing more.
Whether you follow politics closely or watch from afar (the latter being better for your mental health), it was expected from polling numbers that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris would win the presidency in a landslide. What transpired however was one of the closest, nail-biting elections we could have ever witnessed. Amid it all, the Democratic party were edging closer and closer to the magic ‘270’ mark, while the Republicans comfortably held a number of battle ground states. It appears however that Donald Trump won’t be happy until he claims victory, but oh, wait, he already did.
There’s no argument that Donald Trump isn’t receptive to being proved wrong, on any occasion or circumstance, but here are the top five (or worst five) moments from the 45th United States President on Election Day.
Falsely claiming victory
Donald Trump has claimed that the election was a “fraud” on the American people agin and again. Even after the official announcement that Joe Biden had won presidency, Trump swiftly took to Twitter to maintain he had won the election. This was mere hours before Joe Biden addressed the nation.
THE OBSERVERS WERE NOT ALLOWED INTO THE COUNTING ROOMS. I WON THE ELECTION, GOT 71,000,000 LEGAL VOTES. BAD THINGS HAPPENED WHICH OUR OBSERVERS WERE NOT ALLOWED TO SEE. NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. MILLIONS OF MAIL-IN BALLOTS WERE SENT TO PEOPLE WHO NEVER ASKED FOR THEM!

EVERY. SINGLE. TWEET. EVER.
This is a no-brainer. Visit Donald Trump’s Twitter feed and you will immediately understand what I mean.

Trump’s attempt at suing his way through the election
While both sides are said of have hundreds of lawyers working around the clock, the 2020 election is expected to be the most litigated in history. In response to the coronavirus and mail-in ballots, Associated Press has said 260 lawsuits have been filed. This number is quickly growing as a last minute attempt for the Trump administration to hold on to the presidency.
As of November 4, Eastern Standard Time, Donald Trump has announced he is suing Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan in a bid to stop counting votes and conduct a recount. Without proof of wrong doing, the Republicans will likely lose but it will delay the final election results. Come on Trump, just go with the flow.
Reportedly Yelling At Rupert Murdoch of Fox News After Arizona Was Claimed By The Democrats
This is one we weren’t expecting. On Tuesday night, Republican-led broadcaster Fox News was the first to declare Joe Biden as the winner of Arizona. According to Vanity Fair, Donald Trump called the outlet’s infamous owner Rupert Murdoch, yelling, and demanding a retraction.
“We called it long before MSNBC!” an anonymous Fox News staffer told the publication. “We were so worried about being seen as pro-Trump that we bent over backwards.”

His Refusal To Leave The White House Peacefully
Over the past six month, Donald Trump has repeatedly admitted he would not leave the White House without a fight. In a matter of days, we will hold him to that claim if Joe Biden is elected president. Speaking to Chris Wallace of Fox News in July, Trump said, “I have to see,” Trump said. “Look – I have to see. No, I’m not going to just say yes. I’m not going to say no.”
“The only way we’re going to lose this election is if the election is rigged,” Trump told the crowd at a rally in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, in August. “Remember that. That’s the only way we’re going to lose this election.”
What happens now? We will be watching closely.
