Former Vice President and presidential candidate Joe Biden has gathered 290 Electoral votes, pushing him over the 270 vote threshold to be declared victorious. Biden has been officially announced President-Elect of the United States of America.
The race was called today, November 7, by the American Press after four days of counting. Although the race has been called, controversy will continue. President Trump and his campaign have been adamant to investigate any potential of voter fraud or tampering. Whether or not evidence exists is to be seen.
President-Elect Joe Biden is set to be inaugurated into the position of the Commander in Chief on January 20, 2021.
