Four days after the election, Joe Biden became the 46th President of the United States!
As of Saturday morning, Biden won 290 electoral votes, over Trump’s 214 votes.
It had been an extremely close race from the start. Voters throughout the United States closely watched the polls, unsure of which way the election would go. With many more people voting absentee, primarily due to covid-19, it was not surprising it took longer than usual for results to be calculated.
With the popular vote, though, Americans have spoken. Voters of all ages and backgrounds are finished with Donald Trump and are ready for a change. On inauguration day, January 20th, 2021, we will have seen the last of Trump’s presidency and rejoice at the Democratic victory.
Along with Biden comes a landmark in American history: Kamala Harris is the first woman and woman of color to be elected Vice-President of the United States.
While Republican voters may not be happy with the outcome of the 2020 election, it will be the beginning of many positive changes in our country.
