Some Americans dance, others wield guns outside vote-tallying sites as counting draws to a close

Supporters of Joe Biden danced in the streets outside a ballot-counting center in Philadelphia on Friday as the steadily growing vote tallies showed the Democratic former vice president could soon be declared winner of the U.S. presidential election. In Detroit, several hundred supporters of President Donald Trump, some visibly armed with guns, raised premature chants of “We won!” outside a counting center, despite it looking increasingly unlikely that this would prove true. Philadelphia appeared to relish its turn as the center of the nation’s attention, even if it was earned only by the relative slowness of its vote counting as the biggest city in the closely fought state of Pennsylvania.
