Some protesters were seen on bicycles or in cars in the streets of DC, carrying signs that called for votes to be counted.

On Wednesday night, demonstrators were seen outside the White House holding Biden 2020 flags and celebrating Joe Biden getting closer to winning the election.

Trump's schedule has remained virtually empty as he awaits the results of the election.

Trump declared an early victory when giving a speech in the early hours of Wednesday morning – despite there being millions of ballots that have yet to be counted.

Despite holding leads in many key battleground states on Election night, Democratic candidate Joe Biden took the lead in states including Michigan and Wisconsin – putting him close to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the election.

As states flipped in Biden's favor, and Trump's lead in many battleground states has narrowed, he and his campaign have made baseless claims of voter fraud.

Trump's campaign demanded a recount of ballots in Wisconsin.

His campaign has also announced they're launching lawsuits in several states, including Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Georgia amid voter fraud claims.

As Trump awaits the results of the election to see if he will serve a second term or be booted from the White House, he's been vocal on Twitter.

Trump has made numerous calls on Twitter – which have been flagged as "misleading" – claiming that votes tallied after election day will not be counted.
