Defeating Donald Trump, Democrat Joe Biden has been declared the winner of the 2020 US presidential election, according to news agency The Associated Press.
Biden, who turns 78 later this month, will be the 46th President of the US, while Indian-American Kamala Harris will be the next vice president.
President-elect Joe Biden will address the nation at 8 p.m. ET Saturday in Wilmington Delaware, CNN reported.
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

On the other hand, Trump promised unspecified legal challenges in order to overturn the outcome of the presidential election as the 74-year-old refused to concede defeat.
“Our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated,” said Donald Trump.
