It’s now almost inevitable that former Vice President Joseph R. Biden would be the next President of the United States, replacing President Donald Trump, the 45th President.
According to official election results, Biden was leading Trump on Friday night by close to 30,000 votes in the crucial battleground state of Pennsylvania with 20 electoral votes, and that lead was expected to keep expanding by the tens of thousands.
With Biden expected to win around 80 percent of the remaining mail-in ballots, it was becoming inevitable that he would win the state and the presidential election as well.
Biden currently has 264 electoral votes and needs six more electoral votes to win the presidential election.
Biden has multiple paths to the presidency. He’s leading in Georgia, Nevada and Arizona as well.
In Georgia, it’s becoming almost inevitable that Biden would also win the state by a slim margin. President Trump’s allies have signaled that the President would call for recount.
Biden scheduled to speak to the nation on Friday. Hours after, President Trump tweeted that he should not declare himself President.
“Joe Biden should not wrongfully claim the office of the President. I could make that claim also. Legal proceedings are just now beginning!,” he said.
“I had such a big lead in all of these states late into election night, only to see the leads miraculously disappear as the days went by. Perhaps these leads will return as our legal proceedings move forward!”
It was not clear what Biden would say to the nation.
