Usdecides: US speaker Pelosi calls Biden ‘president-elect’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in Congress, on Friday called Joe Biden the “ president – elect ” of the United States after he pulled ahead in key election results.
“ President -Elect Biden has a strong mandate to lead ,” Pelosi told reporters after Biden overtook President Donald Trump in the potentially decisive state of Pennsylvania .
Pennsylvania would be enough to put Biden past the magic number of 270 votes in the state – by- state Electoral College , which determines the presidency .
