WASHINGTON (NewsNation Now) — President Donald Trump has returned to the White House after losing his reelection bid. President-elect Joe Biden secured 290 electoral votes to Trump’s 214 electoral votes as of AP’s latest race call.
Trump’s motorcade returned from his golf club in Virginia Saturday afternoon. He was welcomed back with boos and raised middle fingers. Chants of “loser, loser, loser” and profanities were also heard as his motorcade drove by.
Thousands of people gathered outside of the White House and across the country to celebrate and protest election results.
Trump falsely tweeted Saturday afternoon that he won the election. “I won the election, got 71,000,000 legal votes. Bad things happened which our observers were not allowed to see,” he wrote. Trump has threatened further legal action on ballot counting.
So far, Trump has refused to concede to President-elect Joe Biden and is promising legal challenges. He is the first president to lose reelection since George H.W. Bush in 1992.
