WASHINGTON — Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump to become the 46th president of the United States. Biden, 77, was declared the president-elect Saturday, Nov. 7. The Trump campaign has alleged voter fraud and irregularities. Republican campaign leaders have vowed to take legal action in four battleground states, including Michigan where more than 5 million people voted in Tuesday’s high-stakes election. As late as Saturday, votes were still being counted. Biden won the state of Pennsylvania, which put him over the 270 electoral votes required to win the election.
Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, made history as the first Black woman to become vice president.
