CNN calls Biden next US President

TEHRAN, Nov. 07 (MNA) – Some American outlets, including CNN, have named Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States.

Democrat Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump to become the 46th president of the United States on Saturday, positioning himself to lead a nation gripped by historic pandemic and a confluence of economic and social turmoil.

The announcement of the victory came after more than three days of uncertainty as election officials sorted through a surge of mail-in votes that delayed the processing of some ballots. Biden crossed 270 Electoral College votes with a win in Pennsylvania.

Biden was on track to win the national popular vote by more than 4 million, a margin that could grow as ballots continue to be counted.

Trump seized on delays in processing the vote in some states to allege voter fraud and argue that his rival was trying to seize power.
