Biden will be the eldest and 46th president of the United States.
The American news agency ‘AP’ declared Joe Biden the winner on Saturday evening.
US broadcasters CNN, NBC News and CBS News also reported that Biden had won the election after winning the decisive state of Pennsylvania.
As polling closed on Tuesday evening, Americans’ eyes were fixed on TV screens and mobile phones, and the announcement of a new US president was awaited around the world.
Biden’s victory in key states of Wisconsin and Michigan reduced the chances of incumbent President Donald Trump winning.
But with just a handful of states still up for grabs, Trump tried to press his case in court in some key swing states. In spite of the aggressive Republican move, the flurry of court action did not seem obviously destined to impact the election’s outcome.
Two days after Election Day, neither candidate had amassed the votes needed to win the White House. But Biden’s victories in the Great Lakes states left him at 264, meaning he was one battleground state away — any would do — from becoming president-elect.
Trump, with 214 electoral votes, faced a much higher hurdle. To reach 270, he needed to claim all four remaining battlegrounds: Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia and Nevada.
With millions of votes yet to be tabulated, Biden already had received more than 71 million, the most in history. At an afternoon news conference on Wednesday, the former vice president said he expected to win the presidency but stopped short of outright declaring victory.
“I will govern as an American president,” Biden said. “There will be no red states and blue states when we win. Just the United States of America.”
