Democrat and former Vice President Joe Biden defeated current President Donald Trump to become the 46th president of the United States on Saturday, according to the Associated Press.

Biden’s victory officially came when he crossed 270 votes with a projected win in Pennsylvania. As of 11 a.m. on Saturday, Biden has 290 electoral votes compared to Trump’s 214, according to the AP.

The victory comes after days of confusion with mail-in ballots and delayed results. 

Biden, 77, comes into the role of U.S. president with experience. He’s served in government for 49 years and served as former President Barack Obama’s vice president from 2008-2016. In this election, he received a record 74,857,880 votes, more than any other candidate in history.

Biden’s vice president, Kamala Harris, will be the first African American, the first Asian American, and the first female Vice President.
