Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was able to get the 270 electoral votes needed to win the election. This is reported by CNN.

Joe Biden has come out ahead in most key states. So far, this does not mean an official victory, since the electoral college will elect the US president only on December 14.

According to CNN, 273 electors voted for Joe Biden, while only 213 voted for Donald Trump.

"After four long tense days, we have reached a historic moment in this election. Now we can predict who will be the winner of the presidential race. According to journalists, Joseph Biden has been elected the 46th President of the United States," the American television channel CNN reported.

It is also reported that the current US President Donald Trump is going to challenge the election results in courts. But the chances of Biden becoming the next US president are very high.

Trump said that the final result of the presidential election in the United States will be determined by the decision of the Supreme Court.
