Joe Biden wins US Presidential Election after wining in Battleground Pennsylvania

Washington DC - Democrat Joe Biden has won  in key battleground state Pennsylvania, where a victory for the former vice president would push him past the threshold of electoral votes needed to win the White House, US media said Thursday

Biden currently has at least 306 electoral votes. The magic number is 270. I

Biden is also wins in Georgia and Nevada.

These are the latest developments (U.S. Eastern time):

Friday, Nov. 6

5:20 a.m. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas says the U.S. is more than a one-man show and that good losers are more important for the working of democracy than great winners. "Those who continue to add fuel to the fire in the current situation are acting irresponsibly," Maas says in an interview with the Funke media group.

4:40 a.m. Biden has taken a 917-vote lead in hotly contested Georgia, as counting continues, according to CNN and the Wall Street Journal. No Democrat has carried the state and its 16 electoral votes since Bill Clinton in 1992.

4:25 a.m. Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi, at his regular Friday briefing, says he wants to refrain from commenting on the "very, very close" race. "In either case, the U.S.-Japan alliance is the linchpin of Japan's diplomacy," he says. "President Trump has not left office, his administration still continues. The U.S. government still functions."

On concerns about possible post-election violence, he said: "In the U.S., there are many Japanese nationals as well as Japanese enterprises. Therefore, it is important to secure the safety of the Japanese nationals and companies in the United States. We will continue to monitor the situation closely."

2:40 a.m. Trump seems to be wide awake. In a series of tweets, he reiterates his victory claim and call to take the election to the Supreme Court. In one post, he says Twitter itself is "out of control," presumably in response to the platform's policing of his remarks.

2:25 a.m. Outgoing U.S. presidents have a tradition of leaving encouraging letters for their successors -- regardless of party and even after bitter campaigns. The election that is still unfolding, however, is anything but usual.1:45 a.m. Trump's lead in Georgia is down to 1,267 votes, according to The New York Times' figures.

1:00 a.m. The Secret Service is ramping up security around Biden's home in Wilmington, Delaware, in anticipation of a victory speech, reports The Washington Post. The reinforcements will not be the full security detail that he would receive as president-elect, if declared the winner.
