Electoral pundits and political commentators had immediately called the race in Biden’s favour after projecting his victory in the decisive State of Pennsylvania.
Several media platforms reported Biden trouncing Trump with a projected 284 electoral college votes to emerge 46th President of the United States.
Biden, 77, is the oldest candidate ever elected to the White House.
As expected, the volatile has lashed out with unsubstantiated claims of massive voter fraud. He has already prepped up his campaign team for legal battles against election results in several States.
Democrat, Joe Biden spent eight years as Vice President to former President Barack Obama. His victory comes in his third run for the nation’s highest office.
