UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has joined world leaders in tweeting his congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. He said Harris – the first woman and first African-American to become Vice President-elect – had made a “historic achievement” and said he looked forward to working closely with the Biden administration.
Johnson and his foreign secretary Dominic Raab attracted criticism earlier this week for falling short of condemning Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that the election had been riddled with fraud.
Trump supporters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania turned up at the landscaping company where the Republican’s legal team held a press conference earlier.
Some of them pushed against a chainlink fence to hear from Trump’s top lawyer and close aide Rudy Giuliani – who said legal challenges to the results would begin on Monday.
US President-elect Joe Biden will give a speech tonight from his campaign headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware at 20:00 eastern time (01:00 GMT).
He will be accompanied by his wife Jill Biden, his campaign has announced.
Vice-president elect Kamala Harris will also be there with her husband Doug Emhoff, but it is unclear if she will also be making an address.
