President Donald Trump late Sunday night declared on Twitter, in a four-word, all caps tweet, that he "WON THE ELECTION."

The message came after a day of speculation that he'd admitted Joe Biden had won the presidential election in a message posted earlier in the day. 

His tweet was tagged by Twitter, which said that "official sources called this election differently" and added a link to a page of news sources that called the election for the former vice president. 

Earlier on Sunday, Trump drew speculation with a tweet that said "he won" in a tweet, without mentioning Biden by name, because the election was "rigged." His message drew another flag from Twitter, which said the post contained disputed election fraud claims. 

The tweet also sparked speculation that Trump had publicly admitted Biden had defeated him, and shortly after, Trump posted another message, saying "I concede NOTHING! We have a long way to go."

Sunday night Trump also posted messages attacking the "fake news media" for saying Biden will "ascend to the Presidency" by not allowing his campaign to show "how badly shattered and violated our great Constitution has been in the 2020 Election."

He also claimed, in posts flagged by Twitter, that large numbers of poll watchers were thrown out of vote counting rooms, "millions of ballots" were altered by Democrats, and that votes were allowed after the election was over.

Also, he tweeted that the "Radical Left owned Dominion Voting Systems, turned down by Texas and many others because it was not good or secure" had helped throw the election Biden's way. 

"Those responsible for the safeguarding of our Constitution cannot allow the Fake results of the 2020 Mail-In Election to stand," said Trump. "The World is watching!"

Election officials from both parties, however, have said the election went smoothly, and international observers said there were no serious irregularities.

So far, Biden has claimed 78.8 million votes to Trump's 73.1 million and has been projected as the president-elect by most media sources. Newsmax has not called the election for Biden, citing the numerous legal complaints mounted by the Trump campaign. 

Dominion has denied that its machines and software had done anything wrong, and the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, a federal entity established in 2018 through legislation signed by Trump, said the election was the "most secure" in American history and that there is no evidence that any system changed, deleted, or lost votes.
