The US Congress ratifies Biden’s victory in the November presidential elections

The United States Congress has ratified the election of Democrat Joe Biden as president on Thursday in the elections held in November, after having to suspend its session for several hours after supporters of the president, Donald Trump, stormed the legislative headquarters.

The decision came shortly after the Senate and House of Representatives rejected objections raised by a small number of Republican staunch Trump supporters to try to invalidate Biden’s electoral votes in the states of Arizona and Pennsylvania.

Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, obtained 306 votes in the electoral college, 36 more than necessary to obtain victory, although Trump has refused to acknowledge his defeat and has denounced without presenting evidence that the elections took place a fraud.

Rising tensions and Trump’s rhetoric eventually led to the assault by a group of supporters against the Capitol during the session to confirm Biden’s victory, historically a formality in the North American country.
