Joseph Biden Beats Incumbent Donald Trump for President

Donald J. Trump, former reality star (The Apprentice) is also headed to be a former Republican president. After 4 days of laborious vote counting, CNN declared that Democrat Joseph R. Biden will be the 46th president of the United States. Other news outlets quickly followed.

Senator Kamala Harris pulls a trifecta as the first female, Black and South Asian U.S. Vice-President.

Once Biden’s Pennsylvania vote total passed Trump’s on Wednesday morning, it seemed very clear that Biden would prevail. However, it seemed that news decision desks were being extra careful about making the call. (Or maybe they were prolonging the suspense for ratings.)

After calling Pennsylvania (20 electoral votes), networks eventually called Nevada (11 electoral votes), bringing the total to 279. The winner needs 270. Biden is currently leading in *Arizona (11) and Georgia (16), but both states are too close to call. *FOX News and the Associated Press have already called Arizona. Most analysts believe Trump still has a chance to win the state. Most outlets are holding off on calling it.

Trump and his camp don’t accept the results, believing rampant voter fraud handed Biden the win.

According to NBC News, Trump was golfing when the news broke. In his statement, Trump said Biden is “rushing to falsely pose as the winner,” and promised to fight the election results in court beginning Monday.

It’s worth noting that MI, WI, PA, GA turned red before going blue due to state election boards counting votes mail-in votes last. Election day votes were mostly red in several states after Trump called vote by mail rigged and urged his followers to vote in person.
