Joe Biden is the new President of the United States
Democratic candidate Joe Biden became the new president of the United States. This was announced by the American TV channels CNN and ABC News. They refer to the data of the counted bulletins and expert opinions. The United States has not officially announced the name of its new president: it is necessary to wait for the decision of the electoral college, whose meeting will take place only on December 14.
In order to win the presidential elections in the United States, Joe Biden needed more than 270 electoral votes. In the election race, he bypassed his main opponent, the current president of the country, Donald Trump. The elections were held on November 3, and so far the main rivals have been on a par - the gap between the number of votes has been insignificant. Due to the fact that in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, many voted by mail, summing up the election results was delayed. In some states, the vote count is still pending.
