Earlier today (Nov. 7), the 2020 United States Presidential election was called in favor of Joe Biden. That means, of course, that WWE Hall of Famer Donald Trump lost his bid for re-election, and can add one-term President to his impressive resume. Trump is disputing the result and mounting legal challenges to Biden’s win, but experts don’t expect his team to be able to change the outcome.
