Joe Biden, the Democratic Party candidate and the former vice president, became the 46th President of the United States after defeating Republican Party’s nominee and incumbent President Donald Trump on Saturday.
Biden reached 284 electoral votes on Friday, after The Associated Press called his native Pennsylvania in his favour. Biden won both the electoral college and the popular vote, and is the first presidential candidate in history to surpass 70 million votes.
