The Associated Press Have Called The Election: Projecting Joe Biden And Kamala Harris As The 46th President & The 49th Vice-President Of The United States
Opponent of President Trump, Joe Biden, has been projected by The Associated Press (AP) as the winner of the 2020 US Election.
The announcement took place after the AP determined that Biden, with a 34,243 vote lead in Pennsylvania, would prevent Trump from catching up in the race for North-Eastern State' electoral college votes.
The Presidential race was called more than 90 hours since the polls closed on Tuesday 3rd November 2020.
The news provides the sitting President's opponents with the titles President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris.
Achievements that Biden and Harris have obtained include: Gaining the most votes in a presidential election in history, with 74,939,396 at the time of writing, being the fourth campaign to beat a sitting President, and Biden's running mate, Kamala Harris, paving her way in history; marking herself to be the first Black and Asian American to become Vice-President of the United States.
Whilst the news has come with celebration from leaders around the world and by Democrats across the country, the sitting President has met the news bitterly and is refusing to give up his Presidency. This comes after days of numerous accusations without evidence, false allegations of fraud and claiming victory not long after the vote counting had started.
