Will it be Donald Trump for a second term, or will Joe Biden become the 46th President of the United States?
It is a tight race, as counting is still underway in several key states. The race is so competitive that in some states like Michigan which have less than ten percent of the vote left to be counted most networks are yet to project a winner.
However, the closeness of the race, has sent the Trump campaign into over drive as it has already said that it would be seeking a recount in Wisconsin and Michigan; while Michigan is not yet determined the Biden camp holds a slim lead over Trump.
Michigan authorities have said they are committed to counting every vote.

Late Tuesday night Joe Biden urged supporters to be patient noting that results were unlikely to be known until Wednesday.
Biden did reassure his supporters that they were in fact on the path to victory.
“Keep the faith guys, we’re gonna win this,” Biden told a crowd.
“We believe we’re on track to win this election, It ain’t over until every ballot is counted… but we’re feeling good about where we are,” he added.
Trump, on the other hand addressed his supporters a little after 2:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning also expressing confidence of his impending victory.
“We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election,” Trump told his supporters.
Despite Trump’s declaration, many uncounted votes remain in battleground states that could tip the balance.
