Mubasher: Joe Biden won the state of Pennsylvania on Saturday, which put him over the threshold of 270 electoral colleges votes needed to defeat the Republican US President Donald Trump, Reuters reported.
In his first speech following four tense days of vote tallying, Biden said that “it was time to heal” a divided America, while President Donald Trump rejected to concede and threatened to take legal action to attack the integrity of the voting process.
“The people of this nation have spoken. They have delivered us a clear victory, a convincing victory,” Biden told his supporters in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware.
The Democrat addressed the 70 million Americans who voted for Trump, saying that he understands their disappointment, “but now, let’s give each other a chance. It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again,”
Biden was introduced by his running mate, the US Senator Kamala Harris, who will be the first woman, the first black person, and the first person of Asian descent to be elected as vice president.
