Joe Biden has defeated Donald Trump in the 2020 election and will become the nation’s 46th president. Late Saturday morning Biden captured Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes to take an insurmountable electoral college lead of 273 to Trump’s 214.
Biden’s victory means that California Sen. Kamala Harris will make history as the first woman, the first Black person and the first person of South Asian descent elected to the office of vice president.
Trump is the first incumbent to lose re-election in more than a quarter-century. He received the news while playing golf at his northern Virginia club.
The Trump campaign says it is planning a massive legal effort to overturn the election results, however, most experts see little chance of success in altering the outcome of the race.
