The 77-year-old's projected win in Pennsylvania ensured he surpassed the magic 270 Electoral College votes that determine who is elected the president in the US regardless of the popular votes.

In a statement on his official media pages soon after he was projected to be the winner in a tight race, Biden vowed to be the president for all Americans.

Biden previously served as the 47th vice president of the United States under Barack Obama from 2009 to 2017.

He is a member of the Democratic Party and had also served as the United States senator for Delaware from 1973 to 2009.
