Donald Trump declared himself the victor in an election with millions of votes left to be counted on election night, but on Wednesday morning, the count is still very much happening. Since election officials won’t just follow Trump’s commands from the White House to “stop the voting” (there is no more voting, just counting, which is what Trump wants stopped), the election is not over and Trump is furious about it.

On election night, Trump won many states he won in 2016 without delay, such as Florida and Ohio, with results that came in early. In other states, only the in-person votes cast on Election Day have been counted, with absentee ballots still left to count at a time when mail-in voting is at its highest due to the pandemic.
In some states, counting the mail-in ballots didn’t even begin until Wednesday morning. There was a clear pattern of mail-in voting overwhelmingly favoring Joe Biden, so there’s no conspiracy evident in mail-in votes having higher vote totals for Biden today. With the entire country on pins and needles waiting to find out who will be the president of the United States for the next four years, Donald Trump is stoking fear and outrage from the White House, all baseless and intended to cause chaos.
The votes will not be finished being counted until they are all counted, no matter how impatient or crazed the president becomes.
Twitter let Trump know he hasn’t won yet and that they’re hoping he won’t at all. Read some of their comments below:
