Confirm! Joe Biden 46th US President

 Democratic candidate Joe Biden was announced as the winner of the 2020 U.S. presidential election early Sunday morning, where voters were seen clearly rejecting President Donald Trump's first term administration which was seen as chaotic and highly polarized.


So far Biden has won 290 seats, enough to pass the simple 270 votes needed to step into the White House by taking over the important states that Trump won in the 2016 general election in Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, according to projections. by Decision Desk HQ.


AP, NBC, CNN, The New York Times, and The Washington Post recognize Biden's victory shortly after 11:00 a.m. Saturday in New York (12pm Malaysian time).

For your information, Decision Desk HQ and Insider have actually made the announcement of Biden's victory at 8:50 am on Friday, November 6 New York time. The AP, NBC, CNN, The New York Times, the Washington Post, and the BBC have only officially announced the election of Biden in honor of the ongoing counting process at 11 a.m. Saturday NY time.


At the time of this writing the states of Georgia and North Carolina are still in the process of counting the votes in the tight race where Biden leads in Georgia while Trump leads in North Carolina.

With Biden's victory, Trump became the 13th president to lose his re-election and only the fourth to do so since the end of World War II.
