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.

They are scared of SOCIALISM. There's nothing more un-American and treacherous than a president who supports a healthcare plan that would build upon the Affordable Care Act. On top of that he wants to make college tuition-free for families making less than $125,000. Now that's something a REAL president would never do...

That's exactly what they're scared of. Because that's what Trump told them to be scared of. They'll get over it if the rest of us are willing to help them. We have to work together, or at least provide a good example. People can change their minds; we have to accept them when we do, and put the past behind us. Not to forget it, but to learn from it, so it doesn't happen again.

Considering Trump was truly representing privileged white folks(although I'm sure he also likes rich folks of other races and ethnicities- like the Saudi Royal Family and dictators like Vladimir Putin and KimJong-Un ) like himself who are only interested in adding to their own personal fortunes and don't give a t*ss about everyone else... His kind do not have to worry about expenses that ordinary people do (you know, like rent/mortgage, food, clothes, medicine, health care, dental care etc.) He NEVER represented the multitude of followers he amassed... I don't get how they did not understand that.

As a Black woman, I was afraid of all my rights being taken away. That I would b made to flee this country, or rounded up like migrants! I was afraid of everything that man declared on Twitter. I'm pretty certain the the LGBTQ community were terrified, as were disabled people, and Muslims, of being harassed, killed, having the things that keep them alive taken away, and in the case of transgender people being totally erased. What the hell do Republicans have to be scared of? Ramifications? Consequences? Retaliation form people in wheelchairs or on respirators?All the imaginary slights in their heads?

Scared? What am I sacred for? Remember Trump? How the democrats tried to get him impeached? You don't think the Republicans are gonna do that now? You know how Congress nowadays votes for or against the presidents PARTY, instead of for or against what they think is for the good of the country, like it SHOULD be? I'm scared of four more years of one group of people (a little smaller) hating on another group of people, for four more years. I'm scared of the riots and the disputes. I live in a state that's evenly divided and I already have teachers telling my kids stuff like "trump is the best and biden and biden and all bidens followers will go to hell" or "trump should go suck a ****" literally teachers telling my kids these things in school, at a public school. I'm scared because trump and biden both say america's gonna be great, but with all these arguments, America is anything but great. Instead of working for the good of AMERICA, we'r working against the other PARTY. thats not great
