Biden wins White House, vowing new direction for divided US

Former Vice President Joe Biden has endorsed the gubernatorial campaign of Chris Peterson of Salt Lake City.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrat Joe Biden has defeated President Donald Trump to become the 46th president of the United States. Biden vanquished his Republican foe after a campaign as bitter and divisive as Trump’s own presidential term. Victories in “blue wall” northern industrial states propelled Biden to the White House, where he’ll confront America’s deep health, economic and social ills. Trump refused to concede and threatened further legal action. But the win in Pennsylvania sealed Biden’s victory after more than three tension-filled days of counting votes. Record numbers of Americans voted early and by mail, many out of concern about going to polling places during the coronavirus pandemic.

    The cold November rain outside is a fitting mood for how depressing the next 4 years in America will feel.

    To quote Dems about Trump from 4 years ago, I hope Biden fails. Miserably.

    Actually, the liberal media has declared biden won the White house, not the people.

      This is true.
      And not until all voter fraud ballots are corrected and legal votes recounted will we know who the president will be for the next 4 year’s

      Liberal media, such as Fox News?

    I am certain that with higher taxes, higher unemployment, energy dependence on other countries, and open borders, we will feel much greater unity.

    How can Utahns who claim every week in church to have moral scruples vote for a man like Trump. Maybe they read Emerson: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.”

      Congrats on your stupid comment. Not everyone in Utah goes to church. Not everyone in Utah who goes to church drink the same kool aid. How can you, a dem with “moral scruples” support the murder of thousands of unborn babies? Or the criminal behavior of so many illegals who have no regard for or countries rules? They are simply here to cause destruction. How do you sleep at night?

    No he hasn’t!
    Biden has not been declared the winner of the election. The media is feeding you misinformation. Not until all voter fraud cases have been settled and all rightful votes are counted will the president be announced.

      Are you saying you agree with Rudy G’s misstatement that the courts decide the election, when that is not what the constitution says?

    With all the verifiable voter fraud and anomalous counts..biden is not the winner yet..the beacon of democracy still has hope. If the fraud is allowed to stand without challenge this was the last real election in the US
