At 78 years, former Vice President Joe Biden makes history today as he defeats an incumbent to win US Presidency.

News networks announced that Biden garnered 290 electoral votes, 20 more than 270 required, to defeat incumbent President Donald Trump.

The former VP immediately took to Twitter to reassure citizens that he will be fair to all Americans.

The winning electoral college votes come from traditional Republican strongholds of Pennsylvania, Georgia and Michigan.

The former VP also secured the popular vote at over 74million, a whopping 4million above the votes for President Trump.

The Biden victory denies Trump a second term and opens a door for re-engagement of America to the world.

President Trump hunkered down at a golf course all day and has refused to concede victory, as at the time of this report.

His furious and combative tweets have however ceased in the past five hours as he chewed on a bitter defeat.

Before the announcement of his loss, he remained defiant to the end.

The world has breathed a sigh of relief at Trump’s electoral ouster as notable world leaders congratulate the winner.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson wasted no time to congratulate Biden and his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, on their victory.

“The US is our most important ally and I look forward to working very closely on our shared priorities, from climate change to trade and security,” he said.

At 78, Joe Biden will become the oldest US president in history, among other record-setting achievements.

He is first VP to a black President and first President to be served by first black and female VP.

VP-elect Kamala Harris has both black and Asian blood, from a Jamaican father and an Indian mother.
