Twitter cited its civic integrity policy to justify action against Trump's tweets. Yesterday, the micro-blogging site had also flagged two tweets by the US President. In those tweets, Trump had claimed that his lead was "disappearing" when mail-in ballots were counted, and alleged election theft.

As of Thursday morning, Biden had 253 electoral college votes, 17 short of the 270 needed to become President, and Trump had only 214, according to The New York Times. The only way Trump can get re-elected is by capturing 54 of the remaining 71 votes.
