President Donald Trump on Sunday appeared to acknowledge for the first time that Joe Biden won the White House, but made clear he would not concede and would keep trying to overturn the election result.

It is now 12 days since the United States election on November 3 and eight days since Mr Biden passed the threshold of 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House.

The latest vote tallies gave the Democrat Biden a clear win in the state-by-state Electoral College that decides the presidency, with 306 votes against Trump's 232.

The president's tweets come after days of refusing to concede to President-elect Joe Biden and spreading outright lies and conspiracy theories through his Twitter account. "We have a long way to go".

Trump is impeding Biden's transition ahead of inauguration on January 20 and has filed numerous lawsuits - unsuccessfully - to challenge vote counts around the country.

Trump, without using Biden's name, tweeted that "He won", something Trump had not said before publicly, though he said the Democrat's victory was only "in the eyes" of the media.

President Donald Trump appears to edge closer towards acknowledging his election defeat to challenger Joe Biden, who he says, won because of mass fraud in votes.

.

Twitter promptly slapped another warning label on the tweet, which reads "This claim about election fraud is disputed".

In a news conference on the same day, Mr Trump said "who knows" which administration would be in power in the future. But after weeks of Trump repeatedly denying that he lost this election, the admission seemed noteworthy.

After dark, groups of Trump supporters and counter-protesters clashed on the streets, scuffling and throwing punches. The 39-year-old took to Twitter to express her frustration at incidents of attacks on Trump's supporters. "But if the Republican voters are only hearing Donald Trump's misrepresentations, it's not surprising that they believe it", Bolton said on ABC's "This Week".

And former Trump national security advisor John Bolton, a critic of the president since leaving the administration, told CNN it was critical for other Republicans to make clear to Trump that he had lost in a fair election.

More than 10,000 Trump supporters rallied in Washington on Saturday to back his claims of fraud - massing in Washington's Freedom Plaza before marching to the Supreme Court in a raucous atmosphere. "I do expect him to go".
