Donald Trump won more than 71 million votes, the second-highest total in American history. Nationally, he has more than a 47% share of his vote and has an extraordinary hold over large swathes of this country that has brought a near cult-like devotion among many of his supporters. But he still lost the election to Joe Biden. This defeat makes Trump one of only four incumbents in the modern era not to get another four years. He also has become the first president to lose the popular vote in consecutive US elections.

He refused to accept the result, accusing media outlets that called the race for Joe Biden of colluding with the president-elect in trying to steal the White House. The voters, however, did not. Everyone from celebrities to Internet meme pages has been sharing their reactions to the race both in the streets and online, and many of these thoughts are definitely worthwhile. Here are some of them.

With his triumph, Biden, who turns 78 later this month, fulfilled his decades-long ambition in his third bid for the White House, becoming the oldest person elected president.

The result also provided a historical moment for Biden's running mate, Senator Kamala Harris of California, who will become the first woman to serve as vice president.

On Saturday night, Biden appeared in front of supporters at a drive-in rally in Wilmington, Delaware, and claimed the presidency and called on the country to reunite after what he described as a toxic political interlude.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, could lose more than just the presidency. Twitter has confirmed that if Trump leaves office, he will no longer receive special treatment as a "newsworthy individual".

Twitter's policy around what the company calls newsworthiness protects certain people — such as elected officials with more than 250,000 followers — from having their accounts suspended or banned for rule infractions that would lead average users to severe penalties.

I wish I didnt care about America, but the world is so linked to the American economy, viewpoint on climate change and foreign policy that it is vital "we" have the right President. Now hopefully we have. can we please stop just taking about Climate change and start DOING what we need to do.

And all the Democrats are celebrating that they were able to cheat openly and nothing will be done about this. This means that there will never again be a fair election in the USA.

We are actually celebrating the fact that Trump was legally voted out, according to election security officials, and that Trump will be out on Jan 20 2021.

The left can dance all they want, when Biden raises the taxes so high you won't be able to afford to actually do anything. He could have tried to make things better the last 47 years he was in office.
