Former Vice President Joe Biden has been chosen as the next president of the United States of America.

Although current President Donald Trump has questioned the validity of some of the voting process, Biden is set to be inaugurated as the 46th president of the United States of America on Jan. 20, 2021.

According to projections by various sources, including the Associated Press and CNN, Biden defeated Trump in the 2020 election by 58 Electoral College votes, securing 306 instead of the needed 270 votes.

Born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the former vice president and Delaware senator sent out a tweet on Twitter to talk about his appreciation for the voters.

“American, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country,” according to Biden’s tweet. “The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not.

“I will keep the faith that you have placed in me.”

In April 2019, Biden announced his intentions to run in the 2020 presidential election. He secured the Democratic nomination in June of this year, and selected U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-California) as his running mate in August.

The general election took place Nov. 3, and results were received by the following Saturday. However, Trump has continued to refuse to concede.

On Monday, Trump posted numerous tweets about the election.

“The Radical Left Democrats, working with their partner, the Fake News Media, are trying to STEAL this Election,” according to Trump’s Twitter post. “We won’t let them!”
