President Donald Trump returns to the White House from playing golf in Washington, DC on November 7, 2020, after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election.

With the election now officially called, the social media platform will no longer apply warnings on tweets commenting on the outcome.

Once he returned to the White House from his day of golfing, Donald Trump began to rage tweet about the election outcome which resulted in a projected Joe Biden victory.

The first of a pair of tweets was immediately flagged by the social media platform for attempting to share unsubstantiated fraud allegations. On the post, Twitter warned, "This claim about election fraud is disputed," which include a link to several news stories combating Trump's ongoing allegations.

The post, however, was not blocked out with a warning about the possible misinformation that several posts from the president were tagged with throughout the week as he attempted to undermine the counting process with the same unsubstantiated allegations.

According to a Twitter spokesperson, with the 2020 election now called by multiple news outlets, the platform will no longer apply warnings on tweets commenting on the outcome. However, Twitter will continue to apply labels to provide additional context on Tweets regarding the integrity of the process, which included Trump's latest post. Trump also tweeted early Saturday, before the election was called, that he won. That post was also flagged as inaccurate.

Trump did post another tweet Saturday afternoon in which he wrote, "71,000,000 Legal Votes. The most EVER for a sitting President!" And that is accurate, as is the fact that Biden received, thus far,  74,523,834 votes — the most ever for a presidential candidate.
