Added On November 8, 2020

U.S. Democratic nominee Joe Biden declared victory in the 2020 presidential race on Saturday night, while U.S. President Donald Trump refused to concede defeat.

In a speech delivered from Wilmington, Delaware, Biden urged unity and reached out directly to Trump's supporters, as the country continues to reel from partisan fights and deepening social division.
Biden's speech came a few hours after he had been projected by multiple U.S. media outlets to have won over 270 electoral votes.
In response to the latest projections, Trump said he thinks "this election is far from over," vowing to take legal actions.
The Trump campaign has already launched multiple lawsuits in several battleground states, including Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Georgia. His team has also called for a recount in Wisconsin.
