Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump on Saturday in the presidential election as the 46th president of the United States.
Four days after the country’s election, the Associated Press announced Joe Biden as the winner of a deadly campaign for the US presidency. “He will lead the polar nation through the historic confrontation of health, economic and social crises,” the AP said.
CNN and NBC News were on television networks just minutes after he claimed that Pennsylvania’s main state had won, garnering its 20 electoral votes and crossing the 270 marks required to win the presidency.
Biden thanked for being elected president. “I am honored that you have chosen me to lead our great nation, America. The task before us will be difficult, but I give you this word: I will be president of all Americans – whether you vote for me or not. I will keep the faith you have placed in me, ”he tweeted.
Kamala Harris, of Indian descent, was the first black woman to be elected Vice President of the United States
With this victory, Kamala Harris made history as the first woman, the first Black American and the first Asian American Vice President of America. She is also expected to be a Democratic nomination candidate in 2024.
Although Biden failed to overthrow the main states of Florida, Texas and Iowa, he won the battlefield states of Michigan and Wisconsin, tightening his grip on the top post.
The victory of the Democrats came amid tough election arguments by the Republican Party led by Donald Trump. Trump, who refused to accept defeat, said Joe Biden was “mistakenly pretending to be the winner” after television networks announced Democrat victory.
