  • BBC News published this video item, entitled “Joe Biden wins US election to become 46th President – BBC News” – below is their description.

    Joe Biden has won the US Presidential election. He crossed the threshold of 270 Electoral College votes needed by winning the state of Pennsylvania. In a statement the President-Elect said: “In the face of unprecedented obstacles a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again that democracy beats deep in the heart of America”. The election has seen the highest turnout since 1900. Mr Biden has more than 73 million votes, the most ever recorded for a US presidential candidate. The result denies Donald Trump a second term after a divisive presidency defined by the coronavirus pandemic, bitter culture wars and social unrest. The Trump campaign said they were not willing to concede and claimed Mr Biden was “rushing to falsely pose as the winner”. They are planning further legal challenges to the result. However US legal experts say there is almost no chance of overturning the results. Tina Daheley presents BBC news reporting from north America editor Jon Sopel in Washington and Nick Bryant with the Biden campaign in Wilmington, Delaware.
