Democrat candidate Joe Biden has declared victory in the US Presidential election. It comes after all the major TV networks and the AP projected that the 77-year-old won the vote over the incumbent Donald Trump.
In a post on Twitter on Saturday, Biden said he was honored that Americans have chosen him to be their president and said it was now time to heal divisions and unite as a country.
“I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in Vice President-elect Harris. In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted,” Biden wrote in the post.
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. pic.twitter.com/moA9qhmjn8

“With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation. It’s time for America to unite. And to heal,” he added.
The message was published shortly after the media outlets projected him as the winner.
The Trump campaign has refused to concede defeat, issuing a statement from President Trump which declared that Biden’s apparent victory was “fraudulent”.
“We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed,” Trump said. “The simple fact is this election is far from over.”
