Keep scrolling to see what he had to say.

It's been a strange week.

Seven days ago news emerged that Joe Biden was the projected winner of the US Election. But it's not been that simple...

Donald Trump prematurely announced election win.

Despite there being no indication as to who would take the crown, Donald Trump announced that he had won the election. This was a false statement on behalf of the president, who was condemned by the Biden campaign and several Republicans who referred to the claim as "outrageous."

The highest voter turnout was announced.

This number has been the highest it's ever been since 1990.

Donald Trump accused the Democrats of trying to "steal" the election.

"We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election," he writes. "We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!"

Trump secured Florida, Ohio, and Iowa.

These victories put him on the right path to re-election, though Biden made things difficult for him as he secured Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Both campaigns announced that they were "on the right path."

Things seemed too close to call for a while there.

Biden told his supporters to "keep the faith."

While the early statistics favored Donald Trump, Joe Biden hit the stage in Delaware to thank all of his fans and supporters and to also remind them to "keep the faith."

Trump told workers to "stop counting."

According to CNN, this was an "attack" on democracy. White House reporter, Stephen Collinson, analyzed the remarks and concluded: "Trump's remarks essentially amounted to a demand for the legally cast votes of American citizens not to be recorded in a historic act of disenfranchisement. And they brought closer the potential constitutional nightmare that many have feared since Trump started to tarnish an election that he apparently worried he could lose months ago."

"The Squad" all won their re-election.

Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley all won re-election in their respective states.

Trump raised speculation on election credibility.

In a Twitter rant, the president claimed that things had taken a "strange" turn after he was leading last night when the early figures showed he was leading in almost all battleground and swing states, even though many journalists and political advisors have claimed that there is no evidence of voter fraud in any state.

Trump's tweets were restricted on Twitter.

With the label "Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process," the president's tweets get restricted on the Twitter platform as he continues his rant online.

Joe Biden received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history.

The previous record was held by former president of the United States, Barack Obama, and has now been taken over by Joe Biden.

The Trump campaign announced that they will file for a recount in Wisconsin.

Bill Stepien, the campaign manager released this statement: “There have been reports of irregularities in several Wisconsin counties which raise serious doubts about the validity of the results. The President is well within the threshold to request a recount and we will immediately do so." There has still not been any evidence of voter fraud.

Trump filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania.

The current president has filed several lawsuits, one now targeting Pennsylvania, a state that he was projected to win. He has also tweeted that he's had a "big legal win" in the state, even though no evidence has yet been supplied to back it up.

Key Republicans turned on Trump.

During a hosted press conference, he was branded as disastrous by key political players.

Biden took the lead in Pennsylvania.

This meant he was highly likely to win the election overall - and residents had a unique way of celebrating ...

Donald Trump then reacted to his loss on Twitter.

In his typical style ...

But it was all in vain.

As shortly afterwards, it was announced that Biden had won the Presidential election.

Biden reacted to the news.

In a heartfelt statement and video posted on Twitter.

Vice president-elect Kamala Harris followed up with her own reaction.

Sharing a video showing her breaking the news to Biden that they had won, which quickly went viral.

Biden then held his first press conference...

In the first address to the nation from the new President-elect.

A beautiful firework display lit up the sky...

And it included a moving tribute to Joe's late son, Beau.

And the world became prepared for the Presidential changeover in one hilarious way...

As Madam Tussaud's changed the outfit on Donald Trump's waxwork from his usual suit and tie to some more appropriate golfing attire.

And the latest in terms of election news?

Well it finally appears that Trump is beginning to accept the election result.

Speaking recently, he dropped some hints that he's changing his tune.

He was speaking about the possibility of a second lockdown as a result of COVID-19 - Trump said he's not certain who will be in charge.

More specifically he said:

Whatever happens in the future who knows... which administration will be... I guess time will tell but I can tell you this administration won't go into lockdown.

"Only time will tell."

Many people are pointing out that this quote is the first time Trump has seemed to suggest he may not be the next president.

Is he finally admitting defeat?

Only time will tell.
