President Donald Trump tweeted that he won the election just before his opponent was declared the winner officially.
Known to be very active on Twitter, about 30 minutes before Pennsylvania was called for Joe Biden, pushing him from 264 beyond the needed-270 mark, Trump tweeted:
“I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!”
I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!

Trump’s tweet has garnered 553K replies, 562.K retweets and 550.1K likes.
But today’s win came as no surprise to Biden. Last night, before midnight, the 77-year-old tweeted: “The numbers tell us a clear and convincing story: We’re going to win this race.”
The numbers tell us a clear and convincing story: We’re going to win this race.

Trump remained at 214 for over 24 hours, while two States swung from red to blue as Biden gained thousands of votes when the ballots were tallied in Nevada, Georgia and Pennsylvania.
The win in Pennsylvania gave Bien-Harris 20 electoral votes. Biden ends the 2020 US presidential race on 290 according to the Associated Press (AP).
