Stephen King hits out at Trump after he refuses to concede election: ‘You lost, you miserable self-entitled f***er’

Trump was declared the loser of the US election on Saturday (7 November)

Donald Trump says he will 'sign executive order' against Joe Biden as president

Stephen King has a damning message for Donald Trump after the president refused to concede the election.

Joe Biden was declared the winner of the US presidential election on Saturday (7 November) after he won Pennsylvania and surpassed the required 270 electoral college votes.

Following the announcement, however, the current president issued a statement refusing to accept the results of the election

The statement read: “We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over.”

It went on to declare that today (9 November), the Trump campaign would begin “prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated”.

Responding to the statement, King took to Twitter to condemn the president with a brutal message of his own. He wrote: “You lost, you miserable self-entitled infantile f***er. Concede and get the hell out.”

When the results were first announced this weekend, the Carrie author had tweeted: “Sometimes… the good guys win.” In another post, he mocked the president’s famous catchphrase from The Apprentice, writing: “America to Trump: YOU’RE FIRED.”

The 73-year-old has long been a vocal critic of the president’s, having previously called him an “incompetent dumbbell” and stating that Trump is “worse than any horror story I’ve written”.
