Five weeks after the November 3, 2020 presidential election ended, with Joe Biden the clear winner with 306 electoral college votes over Trump’s 232 and more than seven million more votes nationally, Donald Trump is still insisting that he won the election and will continue to do so as long as his hapless supporters continue to send him money.

Trump is, in fact, incorrect about being the only president to win Iowa, Ohio, and Florida and still lose the presidency. Richard Nixon did so in 1960 when he lost to John F. Kennedy. Trump generally gets facts wrong, whether intentionally or unintentionally. For instance, he also insists that he won more electoral college votes in 2016 than any president in history, which he says means that he’s beloved among American voters. Richard Nixon actually holds that record too and we all know exactly how beloved he is today.
The truth is that Donald Trump is an impeached, one-term president who lost the popular vote twice and he just cannot face that. He will never concede, both because it will mean admitting that he’s a loser and because it’s just making him too much money to keep fighting the election results in court. Republican elected officials in 19 states may be backing his fight to overturn the democratic process and disenfranchise millions of voters in the Supreme Court, but that isn’t because he’s right. It’s because they’re terrified of losing the votes of his crazed, conspiracy-loving supporters.
Twitter was quick to let Trump know that, not only did he lose, but he’s also a liar who doesn’t know anything about American history. Read some of their comments below:
