From his hometown of Wilmington on Monday, Biden called on Americans to take a fresh path, saying it was time to unite and forget the old wounds and start anew.

“I am the president of all Americans,” he said.

Since the November 3 election, Trump has been accusing the election of fraud without evidence. He also filed many cases in this regard. But all his cases were dismissed. In the end, the Supreme Court also dismissed his case.

The editorial board of the Wall Street Journal, which is a staunch supporter of Trump, also showed the latest signs of change. The board says Trump’s time is up. Trump’s legal challenges will run on their own. He and his team can help the country by acknowledging the results and moving forward.

Meanwhile, one more formality remains before Biden’s swearing-in. Electoral votes will be counted at a congressional hearing on January 8, chaired by Vice President Mike Pence.

Democrat candidate Joe Biden won the November 3 election with a record 51.3 percent of the vote. Republican candidate Donald Trump, on the other hand, received 48.7 percent or 74.2 million votes. Biden also confirmed the required 260 electoral votes.
