Wild celebrations across US as media finally calls presidency for Biden – but Trump warns election 'not over'

WILD celebrations have broken out across the country after the media finally called the presidency for Democrat Joe Biden.

Current President Donald Trump though has warned the election “not over” yet and hasn’t conceded defeat.

Pennsylvania was called for Biden at around 11.30am EST with people cracking open the champagne soon after the announcement.

Donald Trump though has refused to concede.

A statement signed by the president said Biden “has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.”

Neither candidate has been certified as the winner in any state, as all 50 continue to finalise their vote counts.

Biden tweeted: “I will be a President for all Americans – whether you voted for me or not.

“I will keep the faith that you have placed in me.”

The honking of car horns and cheers could be heard across many of the US’s major cities, including New York City, Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

Hundreds of people also gathered outside the White House in Washington DC, holding up Biden campaign signs.

Footage posted on social media saw huge crowds gather in Columbus Circle, NYC, showing people cheering and car horns honking across from the Trump hotel.

Police have surrounded the building although there have not been any reports of disturbances so far.
