Joe Biden is projected to win the 2020 Presidential Election, according to multiple reports from news sources including the Associated Press.

The projections came swiftly Saturday afternoon as votes continued to roll in.

President Trump has not conceded and the election has not been called, but based on the votes that have come in many believe Biden will take the presidency. 

Joe Biden sent a tweet Saturday after the projections were called.

The AP also called that Biden took the states of Nevada and Pennsylvania Saturday.

Biden addressed the nation around 8 p.m. Saturday vowing to heal a deeply divided nation now that he is the projected winner of the election. 

Trump issued a statement regarding the projections around 11:45 a.m.:

“We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor. In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process. Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.

“Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated. The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election. It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters. Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room – and then fight in court to block their access.

“So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands.”
