Joe Biden Beats Donald Trump and wins Election 2020 America.
The Democratic nominee is projected to have won 290 Electoral College votes, the Associated Press reports.
Election 2020 America:
The Associated Press (AP) on Saturday projected that Biden would have 290 Electoral College votes, after the news agency called Pennsylvania and then Nevada in his support.
I am honored and humbled by the support the American people have placed on me," Vice President-elect [Kamala] Harris,” Biden, 77, announced in a report a few minutes after the results were declared.
Harris will now be the first woman, the first African American, and the first person of Asian origin to serve as vice president.
The projected Biden-Harris victory comes after various anxiety-inducing days in which people around the world saw as battleground US states counted votes and lead shifted between Biden and Republican official President Donald Trump.
The process has met longer-than-usual delays, in part because millions of Americans cast mail-in ballots this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Trump, who has tried to discredit and cast doubt on the US electoral process, has vowed to challenge the projected results. His campaign has filed lawsuits in several states challenging the ballot counts and signaled plans to demand a recount in at least one key state, Wisconsin.
In a statement on Saturday, Trump said the “election is far from over” and accused Biden of “rushing to falsely pose as the winner”.
“Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any state, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor,” he said.
Vote of Election 2020 America counting continues in various key battleground states where the margins are razor-thin. In US elections, it is usual practice for news organizations, after discovering that a candidate no longer has a path to victory, to project a winner in the race.
“Starting Monday, our campaign will start executing our case in court to ensure election laws are fully supported and the rightful winner is seated,” Trump’s statement read.
“The American People are entitled to an honest election, which means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots.”
Biden, for his part, called for unity on Saturday after what was an extremely divisive election campaign.
“With the operations over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation,” he said.
The Democratic president-elect is expected to address the nation at 8 pm ET (0100GMT) Saturday.
