We would like to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden and his running mate, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, for winning the 2020 U.S. elections for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States of America. Americans have decided through their votes and sent a message to leaders around the world how they (well-informed voters) can topple a populist leader. Will this serve as a warning to those (leaders) who share Trump’s political spirit?
President-elect Joe Biden, a Democrat, would occupy the White House in January 2021. But in the coming days, weeks, and months, it remains to be seen how Trump will accept defeat and reconcile with the opposition he accused (without solid evidence) of electoral fraud. We’ve already seen him get outraged when Biden got ahead of him in the count, but he’s quick to declare himself the winner, even prematurely, when the count is in his favor.
However, one thing is clear: Biden won because he is the antithesis of Trump and not because he cheated. The United States has elected its 46th president, and it turns out to be Biden. Trump can deny that fact and protest as he pleases. But he has to deal with the daunting task of providing solid evidence to back up his claims. Otherwise, he’s only pursuing a futile cause when he could have saved himself the agony of it all by accepting defeat and facing the fact that not everything he wants in life, particularly his political career right now, can always turn out right for him.
Biden will have a lot of work to do when he shows up at his office in January 2021, and he also has a lot to fix and heal for the benefit of all Americans. In a statement issued by former US President Barack Obama, he urged Americans to put aside political differences and give Biden, his former vice president, the chance to do what he can for the good of the United States.
“When he walks into the White House in January, he’ll face a series of extraordinary challenges no incoming President ever has–a raging pandemic, an unequal economy and justice system, a democracy at risk, and a climate in peril,” Obama’s written statement said. “I know he’ll do the job with the best interests of every American at heart, whether or not he had their vote.”
Aware of the enormous task ahead, Biden vows to restore the soul of America and offers reconciliation to those who disagree with him. “There will not be blue states and red states when we win. Just the United States of America,” Biden said in a public address Wednesday afternoon. “We are not enemies. What brings us together as Americans is so much stronger than anything that can tear us apart.”
