Mr Trump was speaking to reporters at his campaign headquarters in Arlington, Virginia as the election got underway. In a mixed-message address to his supporters, the President downplayed hopes of an all-out win similar to 2016. It comes as Joe Biden has been tipped by nationwide polls as the winner for today’s election, with YouGov giving the Democrat a 10 point leads yesterday. The first states set to close their polls are Indiana and Kentucky, with results coming in throughput the night.

Mr Trump said he wasn’t considering making remarks on the election result yet, in a more sombre address to his campaign rallies.

He added: “I’m not thinking about a concession speech or acceptance speech yet. 

“Hopefully we’ll be doing only one of those two.

“And you know, winning is easy. Losing is never easy. Not for me, it’s not.”

Twitter users noted the President was low on energy, and were concerned he may have given up on the election.

One user noticed Mr Trump “seems down” in his Virginia address.

Another said: “Is it just me or between this appearance and the F&F phone interview this morning does he seem defeated?”

One more user added: “He looks and sounds exhausted and defeated.”
