Biden now US president-elect, major Western media project

Democrat candidate, Joe Biden, has won the US presidency over Donald Trump, major international and US-based TV networks reported on Saturday, a victory sealed after the Democrat claimed several key battleground states won by the Republican incumbent in 2016.

Checks showed that CNN, NBC News, CBS News, BBC and Al Jazeera, amongst others, called the race in Biden’s favour, after projecting he had won the decisive state of Pennsylvania.

The media platforms reported that Biden beat Trump with a projected 284 electoral college votes to emerge the 46th president of the United States.

Biden, 77, is the oldest candidate ever elected to the White House. Trump, 74, has made as yet unsubstantiated claims of massive voter fraud, and his campaign has launched legal challenges in several states.
