Fox News (among many other outlets[*]) is reporting: Biden wins presidency, Trump denied second term in White House:

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has defeated President Trump, denying him a second term after a bitter campaign and dramatic, prolonged vote count in battleground states that sparked a flurry of lawsuits.

The Fox News Decision Desk projected Saturday that Biden will win the state of Nevada and the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, giving the former vice president the electoral votes he needs to win the White House.

[...] "I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in Vice President-elect Harris," Biden said in a statement. "In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America."

He added: "With the campaign over, it's time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation."

Biden's campaign announced that the president-elect and Harris, his running mate, will speak at an event in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware at 8 p.m. ET.

Joseph Biden would become the 46th President of the US; U.S. Senator Kamala Harris of California, the 49th Vice President.

IMPORTANT: There are still votes to be counted, a recount has been requested in one state, and there are numerous court challenges launched by the Trump campaign. Further, nothing is official until the actual vote by the Electoral College.

    "The sooner we accept the outcome and work together for the good of the country (and of the world), the better it will be for everyone."

    Your "country" is a delusion. Family, and by extension, race, is my only country. Any White person who funds the Jew-owned government services corporation, known as the USA, is criminally negligent. The long lost America's greatness was due to White homogeneity. This fracturing and failure is due to miscegenation and multiculturalism just like all White nations that crumbled before, when they brought in slaves or spread their borders without expelling the inhabitants, and kept, bred with, and gave political standing to, the conquered.

    We need to balkanize along racial and philosophical/party lines already.

      I felt a disturbance in the Force, as if tens of thousands of Trump-supporting man-children cried out in pain from their mother's basements and then were suddenly silenced. I feel as though something wonderful has happened.

    I thought it was China that owned the USA.
