Joe Biden Has Won The 2020 US Election


Joe Biden is now the 46th President of the US as of 2021, he has tried to become president twice before but dropped out and he was made vice president from 2009-2017 and he was a United States Senator for Delaware from 1973-2009. Now he has won the 2020 election and he will be inaugurated as the 46th president in January 2021 with his vice president Kamala Harris, she will be the first African American, Indian American and the first ever female vice president in US history thus the highest ranking female elected official in United States history.

Joe Biden will be the age of 78 when he takes office, he ran twice before in 1988 where he withdrew from the race and then in 2008 before dropping out and joining Barack Obama’s ticket. His life has been marked by many personal tragedies as in 1972 he lost his first wife and baby daughter in a car accident. In 2015 Beau, Joe Biden’s son died of brain cancer at the age of 46.

Joe Biden was up against the present president Donald Trump which Joe Biden beat Donald Trump by 279 points which ended the past four days of nail biting suspense in a very deeply divided country. Joe made his first speech on Saturday night in a parking lot in his home town of Wilmington he said “The people of this nation have spoken they delivered us a clear victory a convincing victory a victory for we the people. We won with the most votes ever casted for presidential ticket in the history of the nation. I am humbled by the trust and confidence you place in me, i want to make America to be respected around the world again. I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide, but to unify; who doesn’t see red states and blue states, only sees the United States.” Joe has so far won more than 74 million votes. He also reached out to all the Donald Trump supporters directly saying “It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric , lower the temperature, see eachother again, listen to each other again.” Mr Biden said, without mentioning his rival in the election “And to make progress, we have to stop treating our opponents as enemies.”

Donald Trump has not spoken in public or given any statement to the press since Joe Biden won the election, the Trump campaign has indicated their candidate does not plan to concede. Donald Trump has reported that their is voter fraud on his Twitter account which Twitter soon marked as a “disputed” claim. He also said “Joe Biden was falsely posing as the winner and the election is far from over.” There will now be a recount in Georgia, where the margins are so tight, and Mr Trump wants the same in Wisconsin, Donald Trump has vowed to take action to the court alleging voting fraud without evidence. If the election result is challenged it would require legal teams to challenge this in the state courts. State Judges would then need to uphold the challenge and order a recount, and Supreme Court Justices could then be asked to overturn a ruling.

On Saturday 7th November the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit over ballots cast on election day in Arizona that it claims were incorrectly rejected. Arizona’s Secretary of State saind in a statement that the case was “grasping at straws.” Votes in some states are still continuing to be counted and the results are never official until final certification which occurs in each state in the weeks following the election. This must be done before 538 chosen officials (electors) from the Electoral College-which officially decides who wins the election-meet in their state capitals to vote on 14th December.

The new president will be officially sworn into office on January 20th 2021 after a transition period to give them time to appoint cabinet ministers and make plans. The handover of power will take place on the steps of the Capitol building in Washington D.C. Once this is done the new president will make their way to the White House to begin their four year term in office.
