Democratic nominee Joe Biden has defeated President Trump in the 2020 presidential election after winning Pennsylvania on Saturday morning, the Associated Press and NBC News report.

The former vice president’s victory follows days of uncertainty as ballots were counted in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, North Carolina and Nevada.

But the win in Pennsylvania this morning put Biden and running mate Kamala Harris over the top, with the 270 electoral votes needed to win.

President Trump was golfing in Sterling, Virginia this morning, but has deployed lawyers and vowed to fight to make sure all “legal” votes are counted. It was unclear as of 11:45 a.m. if he would concede.
