President Donald Trump had claimed he was being cheated out of re-election with a series of unsubstantiated allegations, while Biden had called for calm as votes in key contested states were counted well after Nov. 3.
It is the first time in 28 years that a sitting U.S. president has failed to secure a second term in the White House.
On social media, Biden wrote: “America, I am honored that you elected me to lead our great country. The work ahead will be tough, but I promise you this: I will be a president for all Americans – whether you voted for me or not. I will keep the trust you have placed in me.”
