Joe Biden is speaking live in Wilmington, Delaware after being declared US President-elect by major American news networks.
The Associated Press called the state for Joe Biden at about 3:30am, AEST, after his lead grew to more than 34,000 votes. This took him to 273 electoral votes, enough to win the presidency.
But about half an hour later, the newswire also called Nevada for the Democratic challenger, extending his lead to 279 electoral votes.
Votes in battleground states Arizona, Georgia, and North Carolina are still being counted, but there is no way Donald Trump can win the presidency.
