Democratic candidate Joe Biden was finally declared winner of the US presidential election 2020.

Biden won 290 electoral votes against his Republican rival, President Donald Trump, who could secure just 214 votes.

Soon after he was officially declared winner of the presidential race, Biden took to Twitter to announce, “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. I will keep the faith that you have placed in me.”

Kamal Harris has been elected vice president of the United States of America. She is the first woman, first black woman, first woman of Asian descent and first immigrant woman to become the vice president of the United States.

After she was declared winner in the election, she took to Twitter to express her views in these words: “While I may be the first, I won’t be the last.”

A video of Harris calling Biden and greeting him on his victory in the election is also circulating on Twitter.

On the other hand, President Trump refused to accept the election results and said he would move the Supreme Court because the election was stolen.

He made this announcement even before the final results were announced. He took to Twitter to vent his frustration in these words: “We believe these people are thieves. The big city machines are corrupt. This was a stolen election. Best pollster in Britain wrote this morning that this clearly was a stolen election, that it’s impossible to imagine that Biden outran Obama in some of these states.”

However, Twitter moved quickly to clarify what Trump said. Twitter wrote, “This claim about election fraud is disputed.”

Former US president Barack Obama came out as a strong supporter of Biden and Harris during their election campaign.
