The US citizens had the results of the country’s this year’s elections announced this week,with Joe Biden coming out as the winner.The sitting President,Donald Trump followed closely after him,although Trump has since then not conceded defeat.

After the announcement of the results,messages congratulating Joe Biden were sent all over social media,especially on Twitter.

However,there was a headline by a Al Arabiya,with Biden’s image above it,stating that,”The dogs have returned to the White House.”

On Trump’s Twitter handle,the same words as the headline’s,were also used.The tweet has however been pulled down and is no longer appearing.
