Twitter restricts Trump’s twitter contents as Joe Biden nears winning the elections,
I easily WIN the Presidency of the United States with LEGAL VOTES CAST. The OBSERVERS were not allowed, in any way, shape, or form, to do their job and therefore, votes accepted during this period must be determined to be ILLEGAL VOTES. U.S. Supreme Court should decide!

Thus, the law gives Twitter, Facebook and other information service providers the right to remove or restricts content their services deem obscene, lewd, filthy, excessively violent, harassing or lascivious.
In other words, the president has no powers in this case to censor social media and mainstream media like in China and many African countries.
For president Donald Trump, this is a big threat and a big lost given that his hands are tight and he can only complain on Twitter for which Twitter may decide either to block him or restrict his content without prior consultation.
President Trump has also lost the mainstream media as many big news organizations have been constantly fact-checking his statement and strictly analyse against his expectations.
This comes as president Trump has been complaining about Joe Biden’s wins in various states where he demands a recount of votes.
The Democratic party candidate, Joe Biden, has garnered 264 electoral college votes leaving him with only six more electoral college votes to be declared the winner, according to Associate Press.
Trump, on the other hand, has only secured 214 electoral college votes leaving him with 66 more electoral college votes to win the presidential election.
This has left the president, his sons and many of his supporters unsettled but many career politicians remain optimistic that all shall be well whether the president loses or wins.
On the other hand, the 77 year old Joe Biden remains positive and calls on the Americans remain calm.
“We continue to feel very good about where things stand. And we have no doubt that when the count is finished, Senator (Kamala) Harris and I will be the winners” Biden told reporters in Delaware.
“I ask people to stay calm. The process is working. The count is being completed” said the 77-year-old former US vice president said.
