Newspapers around the country commemorated Democrat Joe Biden’s projected win in the 2020 presidential election with special front pages for their Sunday print editions. 

“Biden beats Trump,” read the banner headline on New York Times. The Washington Post noted “With Harris, he rebuilds “Blue Wall.” 

In Biden’s home state of Delaware, the Sunday News Journal displayed a massive full page photo of the president-elect smiling with the caption “Mr. President.” 








Biden was projected the winner of the 2020 election late Saturday morning, and in a victory speech later that evening, promised to work as hard for Americans who voted for him as those who voted against him. 

“I said from the outset I wanted a campaign that represented America, and I think we did that. Now that’s what I want the administration to look like,” Biden said. “And to those who voted for President Trump, I understand your disappointment tonight. I’ve lost a couple of elections myself. But now, let’s give each other a chance. It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric. To lower the temperature. To see each other again. To listen to each other again. To make progress, we must stop treating our opponents as our enemy. We are not enemies. We are Americans.” 

President Trump has not conceded, alleging widespread voter fraud took place despite producing no evidence to support those claims.
