It was a battle, arguably one of the roughest and toughest in US-history, but on Saturday, all news organizations published that Joe Biden was the projected winner of the election. President-elect Biden took the time to congratulate his base, and, to inform those that voted for President Donald Trump, that he will work for the next four years to heal the country and unite its citizens.
Trump, who was informed of Biden’s win, while going to the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia on Saturday morning has not accepted his loss and has declared that he will fight a legal battle, rather than concede to Joseph R. Biden Jr.
Trump has repeatedly claimed that the Democrats stole the election, but, he hasn’t provided a shred of evidence to support his claims. “The simple fact is this election is far from over,” he said, “Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.”
He then went ahead with his golf plans...
Kamala Harris Makes History
Vice President-elect, Kamala Harris has also made history by becoming the first female VP in the US, and, the first woman of color to be chosen for the job. During her victory speech, Harris proclaimed, “I may be the first, but, I won’t be the last,” which left many in the audience in attendance, in tears.
Will Trump Concede and Leave Peacefully?
Trump has threatened legal battles and has already said that he isn’t going anywhere. Furthermore, it is hard to imagine that a person like Trump would ever consider saying “I lost, good luck to President-elect Biden,” but, he will have to do so soon.
The final count before any legal proceedings left Biden with a 290-214 win in the electoral college. That is 50.6% of the vote, while Trump brought in 47.7%.
Biden won the election due to the swing states that he focused on. First, it started with news that Arizona had elected him, followed by Wisconsin and Michigan, and then news began to pour in of a Biden victory in Pennsylvania, Nevada, and even Georgia. Biden won 7 swing states while Trump only won 5, and Biden’s were bigger, for the most part.
