The Democratic party candidate, Joe Biden will be the 46th President of the United States after defeating Donald Trump.
Joe Biden defeated Trump by winning Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania which was Trump winning grounds in 2016.
With Joe Biden, the President, that pave way for his running mate Kamala Harris will be both the first woman and person of colour to be elected as Vice President.
The race was called following the release of 3,000 counted votes from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania shortly after 4pm UK time, which pushed Biden’s lead in the state above 30,000 votes.
Joe Biden took to his Twitter handle, saying “it’s time to unite and heal”.
He said “I am honoured and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in vice president-elect Harris.
“In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America.
“With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation.
“It’s time for America to unite. And to heal.
“We are the United States of America. And there’s nothing we can’t do if we do it together.”
Meanwhile, said Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner with the help of his media allies because “they don’t want the truth to be exposed”.
Mr Trump said “The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, 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.
“In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process. Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.
The Republican loser who was on his golf course in Virginia when the news of Biden’s Triumph broke vowed to challenge the case in court starting from Monday.
The 45th President who had accused the Electoral college of voters fraud said his action is to ensure that “election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.”
“The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election.
“It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters. Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room – and then fight in court to block their access.
“So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands.”
