The future president of the United States, Joe Biden.

After the long-awaited results, Joe Biden has officially been elected to be the president of the United States of America.

Due to the delay in states such as Pennsylvania, Georgia, Nevada, and North Carolina, the election kept many American citizens on their toes for 3 days after Election Day. After winning 20 electoral votes from Pennsylvania, The Associated Press electoral map called the end of the race and announced Biden as the winner.

What does this mean for America? On Jan. 20, 2021, Biden will be sworn into office and will become the 46th president of the United States. His vice president, Kamala Harris, will be the first woman and person of color to be elected as vice-president.

This left many Trump supporters in despair. According to The New York Times, “The Trump campaign says it will continue with its legal challenges, even as most advisers realize it’s unlikely to change the outcome.”

After winning the election, Biden took it to Twitter where he stated “America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country. The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not.”

After the many months of controversy and the strong, loud campaigns, many citizens hope that this will be what is best for America.
