On the morning of November 7th Joe Biden won the election and is officially the new president of the United States. Biden was able to win the overall deciding state, Pennsylvania, and leads inGeorgia, another important state as well. 

President Biden and Vice President Harris each have their victory speech Saturday night in Wilmington, Delaware. Kamala Harris will be the first woman and first woman of color to be elected vice president. Joe Biden will be the oldest president to be elected. Biden gave a strong victory speech. He made note to thank the African American community, saying “Especially in those moments when this campaign was at its lowest ebb, the African American community stood up again for me. You always had my back and i’ll have yours”. The African American community were a huge part of his win, especially in key cities such as Georgia and Pennsylvania. Biden held 87 percent of the black vote. 

     This has been one of the most heated and divided elections of all time. There has been a large amount of hate between Trump supporters and Biden fans and there has been controversies on both sides. President Biden mentions Trump only briefly in his victory speech, and with it he addresses the rivalry and conflict between opposing political sides. “For all those who voted President Trump, I understand the disappointment tonight. I’ve lost a couple times myself, but now let’s give each other a chance. It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again. And to make progress we have to stop treating our opponents as enemies. They are not our enemies. They are Americans”. 

     Donald Trump has taken a less friendly approach regarding the election results, still calling it a “stolen election” and stating he won. He has been stressing that Biden won through “illegal votes” and claiming that the election was “far from over”. After the results showing Biden to be the winner, Trump tweeted a string of statements, one of them being “THE OBSERVERS WERE NOT ALLOWED INTO THE COUNTING ROOMS. I WON THE ELECTION, GOT 71,000,000 LEGAL VOTES. BAD THINGS HAPPENED WHICH OUR OBSERVERS WERE NOT ALLOWED TO SEE . NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. MILLIONS IF MAIL IN BALLOTS WERE SENT TO PEOPLE WHO NEVER ASKED FOR THEM!” Trump has vowed to take his case about the election to the Supreme Court without much real ground to stand on. Many say he has no real chance of getting it to the Supreme Court. As of Saturday night, Donald Trump has still not conceded and shows no sign of going out quietly.
