    US President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden are engaged in a heated fight for the Oval Office; the race has been narrowed to a few key states. POTUS has filed lawsuits in several states to halt ballot counting, denouncing the preliminary results as “massive cheating”.

    Memes have taken over Indian social media as people are on the edge of their seats awaiting the results of the US presidential race between Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s 'friend' Donald Trump and Joe Biden, with many cheering on the latter's running mate Kamala Harris, who has Indian roots.

    The vote counting entered the third day, keeping millions around the globe in suspense, due to the huge number of mail-in ballots which take time to be verified for signatures and addresses.

    While some shared hilarious memes, others questioned the Electoral College system:

    ​Some laughed over the divine intervention as people in India held prayers for Trump and Harris, saying the country would still celebrate no matter who wins.

    ​Others mocked Trump for his Twitter rant on the election day, calling him a "sore loser".

    ​Democratic candidate Joe Biden has so far secured 264 of the 270 electoral votes needed to win the race, while Trump has garnered 214 electoral votes.
