Campaign

Biden to address nation on Saturday night after winning presidency

President-elect Joe Biden will address the nation on Saturday night, his first formal remarks since clinching the White House. 

Biden is slated to speak at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Del., at 8 p.m. EST on Saturday, his campaign said. He will be joined by his wife, Jill Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff. 

Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election on Saturday morning by the major networks and The Associated Press after clinching Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes. With his victory in the Keystone State, Biden was able to overtake the 270 electoral vote threshold needed to win the White House.

President Trump has not yet conceded the race to Biden, and his campaign has said that it plans to contest the results in several states through recounts and legal action. Arizona, Georgia and North Carolina remain uncalled, though Biden leads in both Arizona and Georgia. Trump has no viable path to a second term.
