After almost three days of uncertainty, the US Presidential election results concluded with Joseph R. Biden defeating US President Donald Trump. His running mate, Kamala Harris became the first Black woman and first South Asian American woman to become vice president-elect.
In his victory speech, Biden emphasised on a message of unity and said that it was the time to “heal and restore the soul of America.”
“I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide but to unify. For all those of you who voted for President Trump, I understand the disappointment tonight. Now let’s give each other a chance. It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again. Let this grim era of demonization in America begin to end — here and now,” he said.
The much-awaited election results triggered an avalanche of reactions on social media with people using hashtag #ByeByeTrump to bid farewell to Trump, who refused to concede, saying the “election is far from over”.
