WASHINGTON: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has inched closer to victory as the lead widened.

Biden seems confident to win the presidency after securing 27,000 votes more than that of Donald Trump’s in Pennsylvania.

Addressing supporters, Biden said, “The numbers tell us a clear story: We’re going to win this race.”

In the seven-minute address, he called for patience and trust in the democratic system. “We’re proving again what we’ve proved for 244 years in this country – democracy works,” he said. “Your vote will be counted. I don’t care how hard people try to stop it.”

The Democrat has also widened the lead in Georgia, Nevada and Arizona in the vote count.

Meanwhile, he urged Americans to look beyond divisions that have run deep this election to work toward “a more perfect union”.

He called for unity and said he would govern for all Americans. His speech did not mention Donald Trump except to say that he was ahead of the incumbent in votes.

Finally, he wrapped up his remarks after about seven minutes, ending with: “God bless you and may God bless our troops”.

Summary:

  • Joe Biden appears close to winning the presidency after securing 27,000 votes more than that of Donald Trump’s in Pennsylvania
