President Trump apparently didn't get a good night's sleep after a Thursday evening White House briefing in which he claimed the election was being stolen, causing major networks to cut away. In three tweets starting around 2am, the president warned that Democrats were trying to take control of the Senate and attacked the vote-counting process, along with Twitter itself, which has placed many of his tweets behind warnings. "Twitter is out of control, made possible through the government gift of Section 230!" he tweeted. In another tweet, which Twitter put behind a warning for containing disputed or misleading information, Trump claimed: "I easily WIN the Presidency of the United States with LEGAL VOTES CAST." According to ABC7, Twitter has applied disclaimers to 13 of Trump's 32 tweets and retweets since the polls closed on Tuesday. (More President Trump stories.)
