Biden said that he was confident he would win key states including Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan.

Trump, however, claimed that he had already won the election, despite millions of votes still being counted across the country. 

"We were getting ready to win this election, frankly we did win this election," Trump said to cheers. "This is a very big moment. This is a major fraud on our nation."
