Confident of victory, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has launched a transition website as he approaches the 270 electoral votes wanted to turn out to be the forty sixth president of the United States.
The website, Build Back Better at the moment options solely a homepage and has the next message:
“The American people will determine who will serve as the next President of the United States. Votes are still being counted in several states around the country. The crises facing the country are severe — from a pandemic to an economic recession, climate change to racial injustice — and the transition team will continue preparing at full speed so that the Biden‑Harris Administration can hit the ground running on Day One.”
If the previous Vice president wins, he would be the oldest U.S president to take workplace when he’s sworn in on Jan. 20. Biden turns 78 this month. His operating mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) would be the second non-white vp and the primary of African and Indian ancestry.
“It is clear that we’re winning enough states to reach 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency. I’m not here to declare that we’ve won. But I am here to report that when the count is finished, we believe we will be the winners,” Biden mentioned Wednesday afternoon in a six-minute speech in Wilmington, Del., with Harris standing close by.
The former Vice president reiterated on Twitter that he was assured his marketing campaign can be victorious, and after assuming the presidency, he mentioned, it was time to “push the harsh rhetoric of the campaign behind us.”
Meanwhile, President Trump has not conceded defeat and Joe Biden has not fairly clinched victory as absentee ballots are counted in remaining swing states on the time of this report.
President Trump’s marketing campaign filed lawsuits Wednesday to pause vote-counting in Michigan and Pennsylvania. They are additionally demanding a recount in Wisconsin, the place Biden is an obvious winner by greater than 20,000 votes.
