While Joe Biden and elected Vice President Kamala Harris promise the most diverse government in the history of America, the outgoing President Donald Trump still does not admit defeat and questions the victory of the Democratic candidate on Twitter.
Biden addressed the public on Monday regarding the fight against the spread of the coronavirus.
"It is time to abolish the politicization of basic health steps such as wearing masks and physical distancing. "We must unite in order to heal the soul of this country and to fight the crisis effectively," Biden said.
He pointed out that "tens of thousands of lives" could be saved if everyone wore masks.
"It may save your life." So please, I beg you, wear a mask. Do it for yourself, for your neighbors. Wearing a mask is not a political position. "
Trump has not yet admitted defeat in the elections, on the contrary, it seems that his associates have launched a counter-offensive.
Kayleigh McEnany, a White House press secretary, said the legal battle for the outcome of the presidential election has only just begun.
"These elections are not over. "Far from it," she said at a press conference.
In a nervous tone, McEnany repeated the accusations that there were election irregularities, although so far there has been no evidence of systemic violations of the process.
However, Axios reported Trump talked with his advisers about the possibility of running for president again in 2024 which, according to analysts, would be a confirmation that he accepts that he lost the elections. Under US law, the president can serve two four-year terms.
Numerous world officials, meanwhile, congratulated Biden on his victory, but some of the great powers, such as Russia and China, have not yet reacted.
The BBC projection shows that Biden conquered the key state of Pennsylvania, and then Nevada, which brought him more than 270 electoral votes necessary for victory.
Biden's victory remains at the level of projections until the Electoral College confirms it on December 14.
The government body that manages the federal agencies, for now, does not allow Biden's associates to officially start the transfer of power, with the explanation that there is no official announcement of the winner yet.
CBS News, which is the BBC partner in America, states that Biden's team is considering withdrawing certain legal moves against the Trump administration due to, as they claim, delaying the handover of power.
Permanent media reporters from the White House state that, despite numerous objections, Trump is expected to leave the Oval Office by January and that he has already started thinking about running again in the 2024 elections.
