The cliffhanger elections in the U.S. was an issue well noted by Vice President Leni Robredo's daughters, sparking conversations on Twitter.

The Robredo siblings tweeted their views on U.S. President Donald Trump's claims of poll fraud, tweeting "Biden lugaw" in reference to Democratic challenger Joe Biden, and an allusion to their mother's 2016 poll challenges.

Robredo's middle child, Tricia, started the conversation saying Trump's poll fraud claim seemed familiar.

Uy, parang may ganitong linyahan din dito nung 2016,” Tricia tweeted, referencing Trump's claim that there were attempts to "steal" the U.S. elections.

Her younger sister Jillian chimed in, saying “Baka paggising, lamang na si Biden sa key states kung saan lamang si Trump tapos sasabihin dinaya.”

Tricia replied with "BIDEN LUGAAAAW," in reference to "Leni Lugaw," a criticism usually thrown at their mother.

Robredo won by the slimmest of margins against the son of the late dictator, who claimed that the polls were rigged.
