In what was the longest election night for the United States, Democratic candidate Joe Biden on Saturday defeated President Donald Trump to become the 46th US President after winning the key state battleground of Pennsylvania.
The former vice president defeated the incumbent president, Donald Trump, with over the 270 electoral votes.
Biden victory will not be the only anticipated history break event as the most votes cast for any candidate ever in a US presidential race, more than 75 million. but also as a race which saw the first black and Asian woman, Kamala Harris to occupy an office as the vice president of the united state.
In reaction to the projected victory, Biden said in a short statement he’s honored to have been elected to lead the country.
“The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not.”
Also, her running mate, Harris, 56, posted a short clip of her conversation with Biden on her Twitter account, shortly after Saturday’s victory projection.
However, the election is not over and there may be months ahead before the decision is official due to recounts and challenges to the voting process. The official results will only be revealed on the 14 of December barring any further delays.
