This election is far from over: Trump as Biden elected next US President

Joseph R Biden Jr has won the US Presidential race by beating incumbent Donald Trump. Biden will be the 46th US President. The projections by the US media -- NYT, CNN, BBC and FOX News -- came after Biden took an unassailable lead in Pennsylvania, a key state with 20 electoral votes. Now, Biden looks set to win 306 electoral votes, exactly as many as Trump had won in 2016 and way more than the 270 required for US Presidency. Prior to the projection, Trump tweeted that he'd won the polls by a big margin. A few hours ago, Biden, in an address to the nation, reached out to the Republicans and said, "We may be opponents, but we're not enemies."
