A top contender for the United States (US) Presidential seat, Joe Biden has defeated the incumbent President, Donald Trump to become the 46th President of the United States.
Biden, a Democratic Presidential candidate, surpassed the 270 electoral votes required to win the White House by flipping the battleground states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
Trump currently trails with 214 electoral votes, with several states — like Arizona, Georgia and North Carolina — still too close to call.
Announcing his victory, the 77-years-old former Vice President took to his Twitter handle @JoeBiden to say:
“America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great 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. I will keep the faith that you have placed in me.”
With Biden’s victory, his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris becomes the first female Vice President of the United States.
