Joe Biden wins US Presidential race against Donald Trump
In what is still turning out to be a wild US election, and an even wilder US Presidential race, Joe Biden has defeated Donald Trump in the electoral college.
The Associated Press made the declaration after the Democratic nominee secured the needed (at least) 270 electoral college votes.
Matt Morgan, the Donald Trump 2020 campaign general counsel, released a statement claiming the election is “not over.” You know, despite it technically being over, but given how the 45th President of the United States has already began calling the votes fraudulent days leading into this, all bets are off.
“The false projection of Joe Biden as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from final,” Morgan said in a statement, referring to Georgia, Arizona, Nevada and Pennsylvania.
Provided Trump does not fight this in a way that leaves to complete civil unrest, and/or places like Fox News admit Joe Biden did indeed win, the process might end up being smooth. If not, look out, as there’s going to be some stranger family gatherings inbound.
There might be a recount in several states, as Joe Biden and Donald Trump were neck-in-neck in several with high electoral college votes. Nevertheless, if all remains steady, Joe Biden is set to be the 46th United States President.
