Breaking - Joe Biden wins US presidential election

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/elec...-2020-54786937

Democratic challenger Joe Biden has won the US presidential election.

The BBC projects that he has reached 273 electoral college votes, meaning that he’ll become the president in January, pending the outcome of any legal challenges.

Pennsylvania has just been projected as a win for Biden.

And that's it, after a long wait, he is now over the threshold of the 270 electoral college votes needed.

Re: Breaking - Joe Biden wins US presidential election

I loved the way the US news programmes cut Trump's latest "it's all lies" public speech in its middle yesterday, to go back to the studio and comment on something completely different!
Like they were finally relieved to be able to ignore the idiot and concentrate on reporting actual events!

Re: Breaking - Joe Biden wins US presidential election

It's not exactly an unexpected win for Biden (and that's if it stays that way) but the support for Trump and the narrow margin of victory for Biden after the very incorrect polling does not bode well for the future.

Re: Breaking - Joe Biden wins US presidential election

JOE BIDEN 284 - DONALD TRUMP 214

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...e-2020-updates

The networks have also declared Joe Biden to be the winner of the US presidential election.

The call came after a new batch of ballots came in from Pennsylvania, pushing Biden’s lead in the state over 30,000 votes.

Some outlets, including CNN, have not yet called Arizona, so they currently show Biden’s electoral college vote count as 273.

But with or without Arizona, Biden has surpassed the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.

Re: Breaking - Joe Biden wins US presidential election

When does Joe Biden become president?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-us-2020-54845063

It's written in the US Constitution that the new term of office begins on 20 January at noon.

It happens at a ceremony called the inauguration which takes place in the capital, Washington DC. The new president and vice-president take an oath of office administered by the Supreme Court chief justice.

So expect to see Joe Biden and Kamala Harris inaugurated on 20 January 2021.
Hopefully, Trump will have moved his belongings and his parasitic family out of the White House long before than so it can be fully sanitised after numerous infections of staff .....

Re: Breaking - Joe Biden wins US presidential election

While it is not yet official, it certainly looks like Biden has won. However, expect that the issue will finally be decided in the courts. Trump has launched numerous court challenges in 3 of the states.

Re: Breaking - Joe Biden wins US presidential election

Perhaps someone should launch a legal action to check the votes from 4 years ago to see whether Trump's first term was even valid.

If anyone can unite the US after the terrible divisions Trump created, Biden can.

Re: Breaking - Joe Biden wins US presidential election

As expected:

Trump refuses to concede after Biden declared president-elect

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...e-2020-updates

“We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over,” Trump 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”.

Trump claims, without evidence, that the Biden campaign "wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters".

The simple fact is that this election IS over. The final votes will continue to be counted in dozens of states, but there is no way for Trump to come back in the presidential race at this point. The fact of the matter is, Biden has the electoral votes to win the White House, and he will be sworn in as president in January.

The president’s reelection campaign has filed lawsuits in multiple battleground states this week, but several of them have already been dismissed, and Biden’s team has dismissed them as “meritless.”
Trump dumped .....
