American president Donald Trump announced that he’d re-won election to the White House for another four years despite millions of votes still to be counted.
Trump held a press conference in the early hours of the American morning to announce he’d won.
But with millions of votes still to count in critical states including Georgia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, it’s far too early to confirm a winner.
Fact-checking sites were quick to call the president out for claiming victory when so many important states are still in the balance. And both Twitter and Facebook labelled his claims as ‘disputed or misleading.’
Trump and Biden both need to be first to win 270 electoral seats in America.
As of midday Dubai time, Biden is currently winning with 224 and Trump on 213.
There are four states still counting postal votes which could take days to complete. Which all means it could be several days before a clear winner is announced.
