The American Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi seems to think that the election victory can no longer escape her party colleague Joe Biden.
She already called him “president-elect” after he caught up with his rival Donald Trump in counting the votes in crucial states.
President-elect Biden has a strong mandate to lead, said Democrat Pelosi, one of the foremost politicians in the US.
American media has not yet named Biden as the winner of the presidential election. Important states like Georgia and Pennsylvania are still neck-and-neck races.
