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.

For the record, bells didn't actually ring in Paris because of US election results (though most French people are certainly relieved to see Trump go). Results just happened to be announced just before 5:45PM, which is when churches ring bells to announce the 6PM mass.

Thanks for that. I know we're all better off now from having our joyful assumption that the whole world that's been watching this s**t show is happy for our release from tyranny, corrected. Btw, how do you know that the eminently practical French didn't say," Let us rejoice with the Americans, and ring the church bells in support of their victory!!" And, another French person then pointed out," Eh! Oui! But, the bells are rung for 6 p.m. Mass, everyday, at this time. Regardless of joyous events in America." Then, the first French person replied," Ah! Voila! It is perfect! We will ring the bells for Mass, joyously for the Americans!! No need to ring two times!" So. How do you know that didn't happen? That's right, Miss Know-it-All -and -must- be the -one -to- rush- in- with -a -correction. You don't know. Vive La France!!!

My God. I don't know why, but I just got an immediate picture in my head of Quasimodo ringing the bells of Noterdam Cathedral. Weird. But what about the scene in National Lampoon's European Vacation when the citizens of that German town get their pitchforks and pikes, ring the church bells, and a mob of angry townspeople set off after Clark Griswold. That's more of the thoughts I have about ringing the bells. You see what's become of my mind during the reign of Trump?

Hélas les églises ont sonné le glas le 29/10 dans toute la France (et pas qu'à Paris) en raison d'une attaque terroriste qui s'est produite dans une église à Nice et a tué trois personnes... Nous aurions préféré que ce soit pour la défaite de Trump, mais nous sommes un état laïc donc cela ne se produira jamais en France. Un peu limite la blague.

Fake news. This information comes from a tweet showing a french bell rigging like every Saturday at 7.45pm, nothing to do with US election : https://amp.lepoint.fr/2400034

Melissa Hammond

Wow. A grumpy soulsucking buzz killer. Support Trump much? If, in our sheer relief and happiness we'd like to think those coincidentally ringing bells in Paris were for us in acknowledgment of the defeat of a despotic ruler, then why not let us think that? You say, "Fake news". Might as well say," I'm a brainwashed Trump Zombie". Btw, that term is an oxymoron. Used by morons. The meaning of one word, cancels out the meaning of another. Like " jumbo shrimp", or " quiet scream". The inherent meaning of the word,"news", is cancelled out by the meaning of the word," fake". Trump made that phrase up and started using it to call journalists liars, but not have to present hard evidence, in support of his accusation. That's because he didn't have any hard facts that supported his allegations. Why? Because the journalists were reporting true facts, the news, to everyone. They were telling the truth. But, all Trump had to say was," Uh uh, I did not! That's fake news!!" Let the "Baaaing" begin.

Correction, do you know how great and good you must be for an evil world to respond in their twisted and bent ways such as Paris, whose GREED, a deadly sin, stopped them from having integrity of fair play when negotiating deals with the HONEST-GOOD PRESIDENT TRUMP! SO then France, get what EVIL you are begging for . . . Rot in your own evil ways when you could have learned from the good example Pres. TRUMP gracefully gave you for ethical character in authoitative posts! FRANCE, You have enslaved yourselves with your OWN stupidity!
