Joe Biden Becomes 46th President of America; Supporters Cheering and Celebrating Historical Victory

 At last the anxieties ended into a new hope to Americans. The Democratic candidate Joe Biden won the 2020 U.S election by defeating Trump in a victory delayed by vote counts and facing potential legal challenges.

His victory came after more than three days of uncertainty as election officials sorted through a surge of mail-in votes that delayed the processing of some ballots. Biden crossed 270 Electoral College votes with a win in Pennsylvania.

"In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America," Biden said. "With the campaign over, it's time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation."

"We are the United States of America. And there's nothing we can't do, if we do it together."

Biden has set out his economic and policy plans, but without control of the Senate he may struggle to realize them. Official GDP figures for the third quarter showed the size of the economy was still almost 4% below its previous peak, despite a 7.4% recovery from the spring lockdown.

Supporters poured into the streets across the country in a moment of catharsis to celebrate the President-elect's victory, that also means that California Sen. Kamala Harris, his running mate, will make history as the first woman, the first Black person and the first person of Southeast Asian descent to become vice president. 

Residents of Washington, DC, which leans heavily Democratic, took to the streets to celebrate after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election.
