Joe Biden has won the race to become the next US president.

Biden has ensured he has enough votes to defeat Donald Trump after the election on Tuesday 3 November.

Biden has won the key state of Pennsylvania – which means the the expectation is he is very likely to win.

To win, Biden was aiming for the 270 electoral college votes needed to become President.

Donald Trump’s team hasn’t accepted defeat yet and said he will fight on.

The number of people who have voted is the highest for over 100 years with Mr Biden getting over 73 million votes, the highest ever for a candidate and Mr Trump getting almost 70 million.

Biden has released a statement saying:
“I am honoured and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in Vice-President-elect Harris. With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation.”

He also sent a message on social media saying he was honoured that his fellow Americans had chosen him as president and promised to work for all Americans, whether they voted for him or not.
