PRESIDENT-ELECT BIDEN’S FIRST ADDRESS TO NATION: Joe Biden is the projected winner of the 2020 presidential election. Now, the former vice president speaks to the nation for the first time as president-elect where he is expected to reiterate his intention to be a president for all Americans. ‘The presidency itself is not a partisan institution,’ he said on election night. ‘It’s the one office in this nation that represents everyone and it demands a duty of care for all Americans.’
Biden’s victory comes as he wins back Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, which Trump won over Hillary Clinton in 2016. He also leads in Georgia and has won Arizona, according to AP projections, both traditionally red states.
Biden’s legitimate claim to the presidency has already been questioned by President Trump, a man who has recklessly and knowingly spread disinformation about the coronavirus pandemic, encouraged far-right fringe conspiracy theories that demonize Democrats, and helped bring the racist birther conspiracy theory into the mainstream during the Obama presidency. Since 2016, Trump has failed to commit to a peaceful transition of power, and has already unleashed an army of lawyers to halt, discredit, and block the counting of legitimate votes in states across the country.
The Biden-Harris ticket has received more votes than any presidential ticket in American history, and Trump has become the first one-term president since George H.W. Bush.
