Joe Biden is officially the president-elect of the United States, defeating incumbent Donald Trump in the 2020 Election.
On Saturday (Nov. 7), Biden pulled ahead in Pennsylvania, giving him the electoral college votes needed to win the presidency, after states worked around the clock counting ballots.
With these results, Biden’s running mate Sen. Kamala Harris also becomes the first women to be elected as vice president.

This news has brought me to tears. I was overwhelmed with relief for this country. I was overwhelmed for Kamala and the inspiration that she brings to girls everywhere. Van Jones made me cry ugly tears. This country has so much work to do to come together. I pray we can do it.

This is our opportunity to remind people what real leadership looks like. If we play the same violent war games as the extremist right wingers have been playing, we will find ourselves in a violent civil war. I pray for our country.
