Biden clears 270-vote mark as electors affirm his victory
WASHINGTON: The Electoral College gave Joe Biden a majority of its votes Monday, confirming his victory in last month's election in state-by-state voting that took on added importance this year because of President Donald Trump's refusal to concede he lost.
California's 55 electoral votes put Biden over the top, clearing the 270-vote mark that affirmed he will be the nation's next president.
Heightened security was in place in some states as electors met on the day by federal law. Electors cast paper ballots in gatherings that took place in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, with masks, social distancing and other virus precautions the order of the day. The results will be sent to Washington and tallied in a January 6 joint session of Congress over which Vice President Mike Pence will preside.
In Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — the six battleground states that Biden won and Trump contested — electors gave Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris their votes Monday in low-key proceedings. Nevada's electors met via Zoom because of the coronavirus pandemic.
When all the votes are in, Biden was expected to have 306 electoral votes to 232 for Trump. Hawaii was the only state that had yet to vote. Biden topped Trump by more than 7 million votes nationwide.
Last nail in the coffin of Trump presidency; a bad loser Trump has made himself a joker entertaining the whole world; even a child would laugh seeing his theatrics; history will remember him as a poor loser
Feku of US gone. What about feku of India
Trump is such a cry baby..!
America has not seen a disgraceful President like Trump who is a curse to its values, dignity and respect.
Shame on Modi, disgrace to Indian Nationals Prme Minister of India openly campaigning for Trump for personal political benefits, forgetting dignity of Prime Minister's office.
God Bless America !
Sleepless nights for Moti due to political death of his mentor Donald
Idiot trump you have lost and thrown to garabage get out of white house or sooner you will be forced out and dumped in filth
seems days are over for this feku no.1
Its very much shocking that the president of usa mr donald is a billioner nd pay less then $ 750 as tax to his go nment where as our pm of india mr modi belongs to poor family nd donate everthing he received as gift its huge difference
same will be modis fate time is ticking fast for modi
Obviously, the defeat of Tonald Drump was the last straw for Feku. We have paid/will be paying a very heavy price for Feku betting on the wrong horse in the U.S. presidential election.
Trump should make his exit with grace and humility by accepting the people's verdict!
The genius called DT will still not accept defeat in public; even though he knows very well that he is defeated hands-down.
He should have conceded instead of getting humiliation. Now biden will again start wars in middle east when trump just returned the troops home.
This signals end of unprecedented era of turbulence, eccentricism and insanity.
When will this voting & counting process end??.. Ridiculous
Joe Biden already got 306. Why today's news says plus 270?
Trump the pump is a LOSER
