It's been more than a week since President-elect Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, but Trump is still refusing to acknowledge these results and work with Biden toward an efficient transition of power.

Instead, Trump's allies have filed multiple lawsuits across numerous states falsely claiming massive irregularities in voting.

Meanwhile, the President's infamous Twitter feed is growing increasingly unhinged, with Trump falsely claiming he "WON THIS ELECTION!" and that Democrats had engaged in widespread voter fraud.

Over a dozen of the President's tweets have been flagged by Twitter as false or misleading as the President's lies continue to erode faith in American democracy among his supporters.

With such an onslaught of falsehoods being broadcast from the President's Twitter account and its nearly 90 million followers, Ashton Pittman—a reporter for the Mississippi Free Press—took it upon himself to make the President's delusional claims into factual statements.

Pittman blacked out all of the lies in some of the President's tweets to make them true—and a lot shorter.

For instance, one of Trump's tweets said of Biden:

"He won because the Election was Rigged. NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn't even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!"

Pittman presented his edited version, which shortened the diatribe to five simple words.

The fun only continued from there.

Twitter users appreciated his efforts and joked that the President had finally conceded.

Others began making edits of their own.

Regardless of Trump's protests, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are set to be inaugurated on January 20th.
