Donald Trump has declared himself the winner of the US presidential election, saying the announcement that his opponent Joe Biden won was based on assumptions by the “fake news media”.

“I WON THE ELECTION!” the president tweeted today, in his clearest indication yet that he might not easily give up his controversial claim to victory.

The post was accompanied by a Twitter label reminding users of potentially misleading claims by Trump: “Official sources called this election differently.”

Just yesterday, Trump made a rare public acknowledgement that Biden had won the election, before quickly saying he was not conceding defeat.

“He (Biden) won because the Election was Rigged,” Trump had posted, before saying that he conceded “NOTHING”, with a statement in capital letters: “WE WILL WIN!”

Major US news outlets called in Trump’s defeat after Biden obtained the 270 electoral votes needed to win.

Trump has argued that the election was rigged against him, with his supporters staging protests in his support.

With the vote count nearing completion, NBC News is projecting that Biden will get 306 electoral votes compared to Trump’s 232.
