US election live results: Joe Biden wins US presidential election


World leaders swiftly congratulated president-elect Joe Biden on his victory on Saturday, cheering it as an opportunity to fortify global democracy and celebrating the significance of Americans having their first woman vice-president.

“The Americans have chosen their President. Congratulations Joe Biden and Kamala Harris! We have a lot to do to overcome today’s challenges. Let’s work together!” tweeted French President Emmanuel Macron.

Other leaders who sent congratulations included German Chancellor Angela Merkel, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and Egyptian president Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.

The president of Ukraine, whose country was central to Mr Trump’s impeachment and an attempt by the Trump campaign to paint Mr Biden and his family as corrupt, offered speedy congratulations.

Most Western allies quickly welcomed a fresh start with a new administration in Washington.

“We’re looking forward to working with the next US government,” German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas tweeted.

“We want to work in our cooperation for a new trans-Atlantic beginning, a New Deal.”
