Donald Trump at the first 2020 general election debate (screengrab).

President Donald Trump claimed victory in the first presidential debate, citing "polls etc." -- and he was quickly met with ridicule.

The president has drawn widespread condemnation for refusing to disavow his white supremacist followers and strongly negative reviews for his abrasive behavior during his debate with Joe Biden, but Trump disagreed.

"I won the debate big, based on compilation of polls etc.," Trump claimed. "Thank you!"

Other Twitter users weren't so sure.
