Joe Biden’s campaign announced that the president-elect and Harris, his running mate, will speak at an event in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware at 8 p.m. ET.
Democratic Joe Biden said in a statement, “I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in Vice President-elect Harris. In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America.”
Democratic Joe Biden added, “With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation.”
President-elect Joe Biden is planning to address the nation on 5 p.m. PT on Saturday, live broadcast will be posted on ZachNews.
Donald Trump is the first incumbent president to lose reelection since Republican George H.W. Bush in 1992.
Donald Trump has launched a number of legal challenges over ballot counting in key battleground states, with his campaign filing suits in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Nevada as the states continue to tally ballots sent by mail.
In a statement on Saturday, Donald Trump did not concede and instead vowed to continue to fight, saying “The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.”
Donald Trump added,”Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.”
Donald Trump, his campaign and surrogates have spread allegations of fraud in the voting and ballot counting in various states, although solid proof of it has not emerged.
At this moment, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has defeated President Trump, but the fight for United States of America Presidential Election 2020 may have just begun, and the nation will all be watching if any changes occurs between today and January 2021.
