Joe Biden and Howard University Alumna Kamala Harris are projected to take the 2020 Presidential Election for the United States of America. Kamala Harris will be the first female Vice President in United States history. This news comes after Pennsylvania projected him as the winner with about 95% of the state’s votes counted, boosting his count to 273 electoral votes in total. The state holds 20 electoral votes.
According to NBC, Biden predicted victory Friday night as he maintained his Electoral College lead over Trump and had overtaken the president in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Nevada. Meanwhile, Trump and his campaign had vowed to fight on even if Biden were declared the winner, saying they are planning for a protracted legal fight across the battleground states.
BIden is expected to give today at 8pm ET.
Joe Biden took to twitter to say:
“I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in Vice President-elect Harris,” Biden said in a recent statement. “In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America.”
Harris also took to Twitter sharing the same video with the text, “This election is about so much more than @JoeBiden or me. It’s about the soul of America and our willingness to fight for it. We have a lot of work ahead of us. Let’s get started.”
Donald Trump has made several efforts to contest the election results, but with few results, as the multiple judges in battleground states cited lack of evidence for dismissing his claims. CNN Reports: Donald Trump defeated Donald Trump. Even before the pandemic, many Americans had grown weary of Trump’s act — the seemingly endless tweets, tantrums and conspiracy theories that dominated his days and ours.
