Trump continues to tweet false information about the counting of votes, which he is trying to stop via a series of lawsuits.

The President wrongly claimed that votes received after the election day would not be counted. In fact, states can still legally count votes as long as they are postmarked on or before November 3. There are cut-off dates – set in stone prior to the election – by which time ballots need to be counted.

Twitter promptly hid the tweet and applied a warning to it, pointing out that “some votes may still need to be counted.”

As discussed in our previous post, counting continues and the remaining states – Alaska, Nevada, Georgia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania – will decide the outcome of the presidency.
