US President Donald Trump left the White House Saturday for the first time since Election Day, heading to his golf club in suburban Virginia as the vote count dragged on with Joe Biden leading the Republican incumbent in decisive states, reported news agency AFP. After appearing twice at the White House in recent days to address the nation, Trump left the presidential residence for the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia. Biden stands on the verge of winning the White House — a victory in battleground state Pennsylvania, where he is leading, would give him enough votes in the Electoral College, which determines the presidency. Trump however has claimed: “I won this election, by a lot!” — a claim that was flagged by Twitter.
I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!

Kamala Harris, now the Vice President-elect, has shared a video of her first phone call with Joe Biden after he’s announced as the winner of the election.
It’s a very raw moment to share, with Ms Harris looking incredibly casual in exercise clothes and a huge smile on her face.
“We did it, Joe. You’re going to be the next President of the United States,” she says.
