New York: Democratic nominee Joe Biden has been elected as 46th president of the United States. All major media outlets, including CNN, NBC, Fox News, and the New York Times, announced Biden’s election on Saturday morning.
Biden, who has already received 253 electoral votes, was elected with 20 Pennsylvania electoral votes. Biden also leads Arizona, Georgia and Nevada. If he wins these three states, he will get 306 electoral votes. In 2016, President Donald Trump received so many electoral votes.
With Biden’s victory, Trump has joined a limited list of presidents who will not be elected for a second term. Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and George HW Bush did not get a second term after World War II.
Biden, 78, also holds the record for the oldest elected president. He was Barack Obama’s vice president from 2009 to 2017, before which he was a senator from Delaware for more than three decades. With Biden’s victory, Kamala Harris will become the first woman vice president. She is the daughter of an Indian mother and a Jamaican father.
Biden claims he will erase the dividing line drawn by Trump for four years. He has been saying that he will bring back the lost image of America in the international arena by looking at all the citizens who vote for him and those who do not.
Although Bidenal has been elected, Trump has refused to accept defeat. He claimed that the election was rigged and that he would go to court and reverse the election results. However, he and his campaign have not been able to make public where the fraud took place.Biden has managed to bring back to the Democratic account three states in the Midwest, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, which Trump unexpectedly snatched four years ago.
Trump won the 2016 election with 46 electoral votes from the Democrat-dominated state. In addition, Biden will be the first Democratic candidate in decades to take the lead in Georgia and Arizona.
