    As Americans head to the polls to vote in the presidential election, Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of US President Donald Trump, is being dragged by netizens around the globe for an “electoral map” showing his father’s alleged support worldwide.

    “Okay, finally got around to making my electoral map prediction,” Trump Jr. said in a Tuesday tweet including the hashtags “#2020Election” and “#VOTE.”

    It was not long before the map spread outside of Trump Jr.’s following and was mocked by thousands worldwide.

    This comes just hours after the US president appeared to deny his namesake a hug during the reelection campaign’s final rally at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

    Additionally, Trump Jr.’s election day post is not the only time he has displayed a lack of understanding of the world.

    "I went through the [US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] data because I kept hearing about new infections," Trump Jr. said during a Fox News interview on October 29, "but I was like, 'Well, why aren't they talking about deaths?' Oh, oh, because the number is almost nothing."

    Nearly 232,000 American deaths have been linked to the COVID-19 novel coronavirus, according to the COVID-19 dashboard of Johns Hopkins University.

    As of this article’s publication, US voters have cast more than 73% of the total number of ballots cast and recorded in the 2016 presidential election, according to US Elections Project data.
