Joe Biden is the projected winner of the U.S. 2020 election, and officially called to be president-elect. After a long and winding week, mail-in ballots have been sufficiently counted to grant enough electoral votes. They’ve led Biden to the W. The Biden-Harris campaign has secured a victory through the tipping-point state of Pennsylvania: where Biden was born and started his campaign for president. Biden’s lead is also outside of the recount threshold in the state, which likely led the media to call a Biden win. We’re still waiting on results from Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia. Those states will likely secure his 273 electoral votes even further. (Update, Biden now has 290)
Biden has become the 46th president, but it will certainly be interesting to see how Trump’s sore loss will play out in the future. Trump is currently playing golf amongst this news, which is quite fitting and comes to no surprise. Nevertheless, this is definitely a turning point for our country.
Donald: you’re fired.
