It’s been a very long and weird week since Joe Biden won Pennsylvania and its 20 Electoral College votes, making him the projected winner of the White House and the president-elect of the United States.

Trump himself has unloaded a barrage of falsehoods and misinformation on his Twitter feed – none of which will be repeated here.
