Donald Trump Played Golf As Joe Biden Was Announced Winner

President Donald Trump was playing a round of golf when the news broke that he had lost the US election to Joe Biden.

Trump wore a white MAGA hat as he played on one of his courses in Sterling, Virginia - the POTUS is a keen golfer and wasn't going to let the impending result get in the way of his downtime on the course.

Eagle-eyed photographers were able to snap some photos of Trump around the exact moment that Democrat Biden had been announced as the winner.

However, if you think Trump looks unbothered as the news was revealed, it's probably because he reckons Biden is 'rushing to falsely pose as the winner'.

In a lengthy statement shared after Biden was announced the President-Elect, Trump said: "We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don't want the truth to be exposed."

He went on to say: "The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.

"In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process. Legal votes decide who is president not the news media.

"Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.

"The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots.

"This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election.

"It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast be ineligible or deceased voters.

"Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room - and then fight in court to block their access.

"So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands."

While Biden shared a short tweet in which he said he was 'honoured' to have won.

He wrote: "America, I'm honoured that you have chosen me to lead our great country.

"The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans - whether you voted for me or not.

"I will keep the faith that you have placed in me."
