President Donald Trump, after a morning of golf, has returned to the White House to witness celebrations of his defeat.
The President's motorcade approached the White House and Trump was welcomed home with boos and raised middle fingers. Chants of "Loser, loser, loser" and profanities were heard as his motorcade drove by. Trump has so far refused to concede defeat to President-elect Biden and is promising further legal challenges.
Trump was seen earlier today at his his golf club in Virginia while major news outlets including CNN, MSNBC, and the Associated Press called the election for Joe Biden.
Biden was declared the winner after his lead in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania surpassed 30,000 votes, ending any chance for Trump to stage a comeback.

Trump's dedication to playing golf while in office has been controversial – particularly because he memorably and repeatedly lambasted his predecessor, Barack Obama, over how often he played the game.
The President has also spent the morning tweeting unsubstantiated allegations of election fraud and illegal voting, while Twitter continues to hide Trump's statements behind a warning label that they may contain disputed or misleading statements about the election.
