Joseph R. Biden, 46th President of The United States of America

After five long days of vote counting, former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris have been projected as the winners of the 2020 presidential election. 

For days, six states hung in the balance as every legal vote of every kind was counted by hundreds of poll workers across the country. On Saturday, November 7th, Biden was the projected winner of Pennsylvania and Nevada, bringing his total electoral votes to 290, according to the Associated Press. 

This win brings many historic moments. Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is not only the first woman to hold this position, but also the first Black and Asian American. She will bring representation to millions of people who have not seen anyone who looks like them in the White House, ever. 

The two of them received the most votes of any presidential ticket ever, with more than 74 million votes and counting. 

This win brought celebrations to the biggest cities across the country, including New York City, D.C, Atlanta, and Philadelphia. We’ve seen dancing in the street and people celebrating with strangers all day. 

As of now, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election publicly or by a phone call to Biden, something that is somewhat of a tradition after a new president is elected.

Trump has claimed that this election is fraudulent and it was stolen from him, a claim based on no evidence. Trump’s legal team has filed lawsuits in many of the state’s Trump lost including Pennsylvania, a state Trump needed to win if he would make the 270 electoral votes threshold in order to win the presidency, according to The New York Times. Some lawsuits, like whether or not mail-in ballots arriving after 8 p.m. on Election Day should have been counted, are ongoing. 

Joe Biden is expected to address the nation for the first time as President-elect at 8 p.m. on Saturday, hours after officially winning the presidency.
