Twitter marked this Saturday as “disputed” a tweet by the US President, Donald Trump, in which he declared himself the winner of the presidential elections, when the country’s main media have already projected the victory of his rival, Democrat Joe Biden.
In his message, the president also continues the accusations from previous days according to which there had been irregularities in the voting and the scrutiny, although there is no evidence of this.
“Observers were not allowed into the voting counting rooms. I won the election, I got 71,000,000 legal votes. Bad things happened and our observers weren’t allowed to see them. They had never happened before. Millions were sent. of mail ballots to people who had not requested them, “Trump wrote.
Twitter marked the message with the note “This accusation of electoral fraud is disputed” and avoided partially hiding it or limiting its dissemination as it has done with dozens of tweets from the president during the last four days, in which Trump has insisted on claiming victory and launch accusations of fraud.
As of mid-afternoon Saturday, Trump’s message had 176,000 retweets, 367,000 “likes” and 195,000 comments.
The Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, became the president-elect of the United States on Saturday after having conquered the key state of Pennsylvania, according to the projections of the main media of the country.
Biden, the presidential candidate who has won the most votes in US history, surpassed the magic number of 270 delegates he needed in the Electoral College when the media confirmed that he will win in Pennsylvania when all the votes are finished.
Her running mate, Kamala Harris, also made history by becoming the first woman ever elected as vice president of the United States, as well as being the first black person to be in that position, when they both arrive at the White House on the 20th. from January.
The screening came after almost four days of agonizing waiting, as the states counted the record for ballots sent by mail in the elections with the most participation in the history of the country.
