The presidential candidate of the Democratic Party in the United States, Joe Biden, on Thursday stated that he is confident of victory.
Biden stated this while addressing the people of the United States on Thursday.
The Democrat noted that it is clear that he had won “enough states to reach 270 electoral votes to win the presidency”.
“Now, every vote must be counted. No one’s going to take our democracy from us…not now, not ever.”
“I’m not here to declare that we’ve won, but I am here to report when the count is finished, we believe we will be the winners.”
“I’m confident that we will emerge victorious. But this will not be my victory alone. It will be a victory for the American people.”
As at the time of filing this report, Biden is slightly ahead of President Donald Trump, however, the race is too close to call as votes are still being counted in many states.
The former Vice President, has, however, launched a transition website.
The statement on the website reads, “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.”
“The transition team will continue preparing at full speed so that the Biden‑Harris Administration can hit the ground running on Day One.”
