The 77-year-old will become America’s oldest president when he is inaugurated next year.
Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, is projected as the winner of the United States presidential election by CNN, NBC, the BBC and Associated Press.
The former vice president defeated incumbent president, Donald Trump, who has called the integrity of the election into question.
Biden was projected by major media organisations on Saturday, November 7, 2020, after crossing over the required 270 electoral votes with a victory in Pennsylvania.
Ballots are still being counted in some key states four days after the November 3 election considered one of the most pivotal in America’s history.
Kamala Harris, Biden’s running mate, will become America’s first female vice president, as well as the first black and Asian woman to occupy the office.
