US Congress Certifies Electoral College victory for Trump

Washington, Congress certified Donald Trump and Mike Pence’s victory in the 2016 election for president and vice president during a joint session Friday afternoon.
Several Democratic House members raised formal objections to the Electoral College results, but they did not have the backing of any senators a requirement for being considered. Vice President Biden, who presided over the session, repeatedly slammed the gavel on debate, saying the objections could not be entertained. “It is over,” Biden said.
Trump will be sworn in as the US 45th President on January 20.
