Americans went to bed Tuesday night and woke up Wednesday morning not sure who their next president will be as slow returns in key swing states delayed results and making it impossible to call the race for either President Trump or Joe Biden.
With the outcome still up in the air, both candidates claimed they had a path to victory — with Biden urging patience and Trump essentially declaring victory in comments made after 2 a.m. ET.
“We believe we are on track to win this election,” Biden said in an early morning speech in Delaware.
Trump declared victory in multiple key battleground states early Wednesday, even though it remained unclear who had the votes to win and hinted the White House would push the Supreme Court to rule over disputed ballots.
