On Nov. 3, millions of Americans headed to the polls to vote in-person the presidential election, while many had already voted early or by mail-in ballot. On Nov. 7, Joe Biden was projected to be the 46th president of the United States reaching the necessary 270 electoral college votes for office after winning Pennsylvania.

But, throughout the counting process, President DonaldTrump has continued to object to the validity of some ballots, especially mail-in ballots, many from swing states that Trump needed to win to remain in office. Over the course of the election, Trump tweeted to stop counting the votes, that the votes are fraudulent and that he had won the presidency. A number of these tweets have been tagged by Twitter for being “misleading.”

Trump’s legal team is still continuing to pursue his presidency. They have filed multiple lawsuits in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Nevada, and Arizona since states started to count votes and continue to process their results. A number of these lawsuits have since been dismissed and there has been no major evidence of voter fraud occurring.
