U.S president elect “Joe Biden” promises to be president for all Americans

New U.S elected president “Joe Biden”, who first ran for president of the United States in 1988, and was the youngest candidate ever then, has now won the presidency - and will be the oldest elected president ever.

Incumbent President Donald Trump, who has left the White House and is at his golf course in Virginia, still has legal challenges in train, however even he at some point will have to accept he has lost the election.

The turning point came on Saturday when Biden won Pennsylvania, adding 20 Electoral Collge votes to the 253 already in hand, taking his tally to 273, in excess of the 270 required.

All the major news agencies, including Mr Trump's favored Fox News Channel, have all declared Biden has won the presidency.

With counts still continuing in other hotly contested states, and the popular vote already in excess of four million, the 46th president (elect) is likely to win easily.

"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," President-elect Joe Biden said in a tweet as this story is being published.

Saturday's development also means Kamala Harris will be the United States' next vice president, the first woman, and the first Black woman to hold the post.

She was also the first Indian-American, and second Black woman to serve as a senator.

"This election is about so much more than @JoeBiden or me. Its about the soul of America and our willingness to fight for it. We have a lot of work ahead of us. Lets get started," Harris tweeted.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was also in a jubilant mood. Today marks the dawning of a new day of hope for America.A record-shattering 75 million Americans cast their ballots to elect Joe Biden President of the United States a historic victory that has handed Democrats a mandate for action," she said in a statement. In President-elect Joe Biden, Americans elected a leader ready on Day One to finally begin to crush the coronavirus so we can safely reopen our economy and schools.In President-elect Biden, the American people delivered a mandate for lower health costs, a mandate for creating bigger paychecks by rebuilding Americas infrastructure, and a mandate for cleaner government that works for the public interest, not the special interests.And in President-elect Biden, they have elected a unifier who values faith, family and community, and who will work tirelessly to heal our nation. President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris won with a strong margin, and they will have a strong Democratic House Majority by their side.Working together, we have the opportunity to deliver extraordinary progress For The People, the Pelosie statement said

Mr Trump will be evicted from the White House by the voters, the first sitting president to be shown the door in twenty eight-years. It was President George H. W. Bush who lost to Bill Clinton in 1992, who remained the last president to lose re-election, until Saturday.

Mr Trump has reacted badly to the news, but the signs have been on the wall for several days. Nonetheless he is foreshadowing a raft of legal measures.
