US election results: President-elect Joe Biden attends church on his first day of business

He visits the graves of his son, daughter and first wife, while Donald Trump spends a second day on the golf course.

 

America’s new soon-to-be president Joe Biden has started his first day of business by going to church.

Wearing a light blue mask, he arrived at Saint Joseph on the Brandywine Roman Catholic church near his home in Wilmington, Delaware, accompanied by daughter Ashley and teenage grandson Robert “Hunter” Biden II – the son of the politician’s late son, Beau.

 

When the family came back out, they visited the graves of Beau – who died with brain cancer in 2015 – as well as Mr Biden’s first wife Neilia, who was killed in a car crash in 1972 with their one-year-old daughter Naomi.

 

Meanwhile, Donald Trump has been back on the golf course at one of his clubs in Sterling, Virginia.

 

He has not yet made a speech since the 2020 US election finally came to a close on Saturday.

Former Republican president George W Bush described Mr Biden as a “good man” who had “won his opportunity to lead and unify our country”.
