Those who hoped for a large victory for the Democrats in the United States are probably having a bad night. The results of the US election defy the polls and are, at the time of this writing, far too uncertain to be able to name the next President of the United States. This scenario has long been feared by American politicians worried that Donald Trump and Joe Biden both claim victory.
On Twitter, Donald Trump and Joe Biden are already starting to argue. As the Democratic candidate announced to his supporters that he was confident during a televised address, Donald Trump accused his opponent on social media of cheating before claiming that he was on the verge of winning the presidential election.
“We are on the RISE, but they are trying to STEAL the election. We will never let them. Voting after the polls have closed is not possible! “ Donald Trump said on Twitter as Joe Biden spoke to his supporters.
Less than ten minutes after this tweet was posted, Twitter decided to censor it. The American social network, against whom Donald Trump is angry, says that“Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and likely to be misleading about how to participate in an election or other civic process. “. This decision logically stirs up tensions between the supporters of the two candidates.
Joe Biden replies on Twitter
A few minutes later, the Democratic candidate responded to his opponent on his home ground. “It is not for me or Donald Trump to declare the winner of this election. This is the role of the voters. ” Joe Biden says on Twitter.
It’s not my place or Donald Trump’s place to declare the winner of this election. It’s the voters’ place.
