(WJHL) – Joe Biden has been declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election by multiple sources. He released a statement Saturday after the news broke.

His statement reads as follows:

I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in Vice President-elect Harris.

In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America.

With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation.

It’s time for America to unite. And to heal.

We are the United States of America. And there’s nothing we can’t do, if we do it together.

President-elect Joe Biden
