Joe Biden is projected the winner of the 2020 presidential race defeating President Donald Trump. The associated press has called the race.
According to CNBC:
WASHINGTON – Joe Biden is projected to win the U.S. presidential election, according to NBC News, a watershed moment in a deeply divided nation that is facing multiple crises.
The call in the race came four days after Election Day, and during close counts in multiple battleground states. President Donald Trump’s campaign has mounted several legal challenges over how the ballots are being tabulated.
Biden’s election amounts to a rejection by millions of voters of Trump’s divisive governance, and an embrace of Biden’s pledge to bring a more civil, compassionate and steady leadership to the White House.
Biden’s victory also represents a mandate given to the incoming administration to chart a new approach to the nationwide coronavirus crisis, which has claimed the lives of more than 233,000 Americans and shows no signs of abating. Trump has consistently downplayed the severity of the pandemic and denied the reality of rising caseloads.
It remains unclear if President Trump will concede or continue to fight in court.
