Joe Biden to be the next President of US, Twitter erupts with happiness

A user posted “End of an error” on Twitter after Joe Biden’s win


After a heated and stretched out election, Democratic candidate, Joe Biden has emerged as the winner of the 2020 presidential election, as per various US media houses. Joe Biden’s win comes after three days of election day in which critical states were still counting the ballot votes as more than half of the votes were cast via ballot boxes. The win comes amid the deadly COVID-19 crisis and a country-wide protest against anti-Blackness and police brutality.

Once the news broke, #BidenHarris2020 started trending on second in India as ExitPolls for the Bihar election was on first. While some are celebrating the victory, others are saying that they have undone the mistake of 2016 elections. Some are saying that Biden’s win is the only good thing in 2020.

People have shared some very interesting reactions on the Twitter. Here are interesting ones.

Republican candidate Donald Trump and his supporters have accused the officials of Democrat-controlled states of election fraud and called for an immediate end of the counting of votes. He has indicated on several occasions that he will not accept the results if he loses and go to the Supreme Court.  He even lashed out on Twitter during the tense vote count and attempted to undermine the democratic institutions of the United States by saying things like “STOP THE COUNT.”

Biden’s win in Pennsylvania, where Donald Trump was leading earlier, has helped Joe’s electoral college vote jump to 284. Joe Biden had earlier asked for patience from his supporters and asked them to stay calm as the process was still working.

Joe Biden who will turn 78 at the end of this month will become the oldest person to become the President of the United States. Kamala Harris would become the first woman, the first woman of colour and the first women from Southeast Asian descent to become the Vice-President of the United States.
