President of the United States of America, Donald Trump has once again claimed victory over the presidential elections held recently.

Donald Trump’s latest claim on Monday comes hours after he tweeted that his opponent, Joe Biden “won because the election was rigged”

Trump tweeted, “I won the election,” but it was immediately tagged as misleading by twitter saying that “Official sources called this election differently”.

Despite official results showing that Biden won the election, Trump refused to concede defeat, claiming massive irregularities and fraud.

Latest vote tallies show that Democrat candidate Biden had a clear win in the electoral college votes with 306 against President Trump’s 232.

Although 270 votes are required for a candidate to be declared winner, US networks projected that Biden won the disputed state of Georgia to get to 306 votes.
