After the victory, Biden’s message to the American people
US President-elect Joe Biden has thanked the American people for their victory.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden has won the required 270 electoral votes in the US state of Pennsylvania and his rival Trump has dropped out of the presidential race.
Joe Biden, 77, will become the 46th president of the United States after being sworn in after gaining an unbeaten lead over Donald Trump.
“It’s an honor for me,” Biden said in a message to the American people on Twitter after receiving the required electoral votes.
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
