Joe Biden, who, according to media reports, won the presidential election in the United States, called it a shame that incumbent American leader Donald Trump did not want to admit defeat in the election. RIA Novosti reports.
“I think it's a shame, to be honest. I think that in the end this [victory of a Democrat] will be crowned with success on January 20 (the day of the inauguration of the US President – Lenta.ru note ), “the politician said during a speech in Delaware.
Biden also added that the process of transferring power after the November 3 US elections cannot be stopped.
The Democrat declared himself elected President of the United States on November 7 – according to various estimates, he received from 273 to 290 electoral votes against the required 270. Trump responded by saying that his rival was quick to call himself the new leader.
