Joe Biden has been named President of the United States after beating Donald Trump to the required 270 electoral college votes.

Biden’s win makes Kamala Harris the first female vice president and also the highest-ranking African American and Indian American to ever hold political office in America.

The news broke from multiple sources. Their win ends the reign of Donald Trump, who was elected to the highest office in the land back in 2016.

In statement Joe Biden said,

I am honoured and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and Vice President-elect Harris. In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America.

With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation. It’s time for America to unite. And to heal. We are the United States of America. And there’s nothing we can’t do if we do it together.
