Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States. Projections give the Democratic candidate wins in Pennsylvania and Nevada, pushing him over the 270 threshold of electoral college votes.

Biden has said that now is the time for "America to heal", while President Trump's campaign team insist that he will not concede victory. Republicans are meanwhile stating that "the media doesn't decides who win elections". In the US, TV networks play a crucial role in calling the winner of the election.

Reaction includes that from Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, who has said that he is "looking forward to co-operating" with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. He wished them "good luck".

Boris Johnson tweeted his congratulations, adding that "the US is our most important ally, and I look forward to working closely together on our shared priorities, from climate change to trade and security".

The president of the Balearics, Francina Armengol, has described the Biden win as "good news" and a "key moment" for Europe and the rest of the world.

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. *Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.*

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. – President Donald J. Trump
