On Monday, Joe Biden cleared the 270 vote threshold in the electoral college count to formalise his victory in the US Presidential Election over Donald Trump.
This he achieved when he reached the milestone with California’s 55 votes. After Hawaii then added its tally, Biden reached 306 votes. Current US President Donald Trump received 232.
“In this battle for the soul of America, democracy prevailed,” Biden said in a speech after the Electoral College confirmed his victory. “We the people voted. Faith in our institutions held. The integrity of our elections remains intact.”
Trump continued to make claims that the election was rigged on Monday.
In a tweet, he said an unreleased report of voting in a Michigan county could be an “election changing result.” The claim was flagged by Twitter as disputed.
Trump’s accusations and lawsuits across several states, which attempted to reject the election results were confronted by Biden.
“It’s a position so extreme we’ve never seen it before. A position that refused to respect the will of the people, refused to respect the rule of law, and refused to honor our constitution,” said Biden.
“It is my sincere hope we never again see anyone subjected to the kind of threats and abuse we saw in this election,” he said.
