Joe Biden says he's 'proud of my son'

Joe Biden will become the oldest US President in history when he takes over from Donald Trump on January 20, 2021. However, the Democrat’s speech was overshadowed by persistent coughing, spluttering and stopping on Monday evening. The performance sparked widespread concerns and commentary on social media.

Mr Biden said after his victory was confirmed by the Electoral College: “It should be celebrated, not attacked.”

“More than 81 million of those votes were cast for me and Vice President-elect Harris.

“That too is a record, more than any ticket has received in the history of America.

“It represented a winning margin of more than seven million votes over the number of votes cast for my opponent.”
