Earlier today, numerous media outlets declared Joe Biden the winner of the Presidential Election against incumbent Donald J Trump. Coming into this election, it was quite clear that things were going to be close as the nation was divided over how they felt about the President. Following a disastrous COVID-19 response, it was clear that things were falling apart for Trump and today was the final chapter as Biden won Pennsylvania and claimed the 270 Electoral votes necessary to win.
So far, Trump has refused to concede the election and is signaling that he will continue to fight the results in court, even though there have been virtually no real cases of electoral fraud or foul play. Needless to say, the next few weeks will be messy as the President seeks to take the election back from Biden.
