The 2020 US Presidential election is one of the most fiercely fought races to the White House in recent times.
As in any election, the candidates are edgy as a few battleground states left to decide which way the vote swings.
Even after the counting of the remaining key states is finished, the election may not be decided for days.
Without declaring victory, Joe Biden said he believed his Democratic campaign would prevail. Donald Trump, a Republican and without evidence, claimed to have won. His campaign has filed lawsuits in two states where his opponent Biden leads.
So far, Biden takes the lead garnering 264 votes in the electoral college against Trump’s 214.
- 1 Trump targets disloyal Republicans, repeats election lies and hints at 2024 run
- 2 Compromise should be hallmark of Biden, Uhuru relationship
- 3 US authorizes J&J's Covid-19 vaccine, making it third available
- 4 Syria condemns 'cowardly' US airstrikes on Iran-backed militias
Trump has erupted with a Twitter storm in what tweeps are calling #TrumpMeltDown. Others are calling his election reactions ‘tantrums’ and "tweetstorms."
Here are some of his latest tweets.
Trump's tweets have elicited various reactions but perhaps one of the most talked-about responses is when Greta Thunberg literally used Trump’s own words against him.
In December 2019, the teenage environmental activist was mocked by Donald Trump in a tweet when she was named Time magazine’s person of the year.
In his insult, Trump told Thunberg, 17, to work on her “anger management problem” and to “go to an old-fashioned movie with a friend”.
“Chill Greta, chill!” the president implored in the tweet, which began with him branding her Time award as “so ridiculous”.
She waited 11 months before delivering the perfect riposte which is perhaps one of the most epic social media mic-drops of all time.
