US President Donald Trump's angry Twitter tirade directed against the alleged voter fraud in the presidential election backfired after many netizens saw in it what they have long been waiting for – POTUS conceding his projected defeat.
He won because the Election was Rigged. NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more! https://t.co/Exb3C1mAPg— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 15, 2020
He only won in the eyes of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA. I concede NOTHING! We have a long way to go. This was a RIGGED ELECTION!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 15, 2020
And while the president rushed to correct the slip of the tongue, the bird was already out of the cage, "twittering" all over the social media with the hashtag #TrumpConceded.
Trump's original tweet apparently suggested that Biden is only projected as the winner in the election because the voting was purportedly rigged against POTUS, but most netizens chose to ignore the rest of the post, focusing on what they desired to see.
One netizen suggested that in the case of Trump, whose fascination with Twitter is well-known, the post on social media could be equated to an official concession. Although some netizens recalled that the concession of the incumbent president is not something that is mandatory in order for a newly elected one to be sworn in – including Biden – in case the Electoral College ends up selecting him.

Tweeted "He won...," If he can fire people via tweets and make major public policy announcements via tweets then his concession can come via tweet pic.twitter.com/nYXmTZMovd
"I CONCEDE NOTHING"— William LeGate 🇺🇸 (@williamlegate) November 15, 2020
The best part about the Constitution is it doesn't require concession to initiate the transfer of power, come January.
Along with #TrumpConceded, a contradictory tag, "I concede nothing", started trending on social media, disappointing many netizens.

Despite the barrage of tweets from the POTUS' opponents, Trump's supporters apparently also found their way into two trends, reminding their counterparts on Twitter that the president openly denied conceding and said that Biden only won "in the eyes of the fake news media".
In fact, what Trump actually said was this:— Cora Sherlock (@CoraSherlock) November 15, 2020
"He only won in the eyes of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA! I concede NOTHING! We have a long way to go. This was a RIGGED ELECTION!"@rtenews has really embraced the 'fake news' title with this tweet. 🤣 https://t.co/BpMVd49zYI
Did #CNBC say so because of this Tweet of @realDonaldTrump? "He only won in the eyes of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA. I concede NOTHING! We have a long way to go. This was a RIGGED ELECTION! " I can't find anything that is closer to CNBC's "report". https://t.co/xVYQKuR5hn— Jennifer Zeng 曾錚 (@jenniferatntd) November 15, 2020
Some netizens rolled their eyes over Biden supporters' selective vision of POTUS' recent tweets, which seemingly focus their attention only on the part they are interested in and ignoring the rest.
