WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are preparing to address the nation as the next President and Vice President of the United States, to be broadcast on ABC at 5 p.m. Pacific.

The Associated Press, followed by a number of other major media outlets, reported on Saturday that Democrat Joe Biden had defeated President Donald Trump to become the 46th president of the United States.

His victory came after election officials sorted through thousands of mail-in votes that delayed the processing of some ballots. Biden reached over 270 Electoral College votes with a win in Pennsylvania.

While votes in Pennsylvania and other battleground states are still being counted, AP determined that Biden had achieved a lead that Trump could not overtake with the remaining votes in both Pennsylvania and Nevada.

Kamala Harris also made history as the first Black woman to become vice president, Harris will become the highest-ranking woman to serve in government. 

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after the American people elected Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the next president and vice president of the United States:

“The American people chose hope. They chose dignity and opportunity for all. They chose to build back better. And after four years of hate and division, they chose unity. Now it’s time for our nation to come together. President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are ready to go to work for American families. They will not just be president and vice president for Democrats, but for all Americans. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will begin to heal our nation’s wounds, rebuild our economy, and put Americans back to work."

BIden put the following statement on his campaign website on Saturday, following the news:

"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."
