Democratic candidate Joe Biden won the US presidential election. He will be the 64th President of the US. Major US media outlets have named Biden as the winner in the November 3 election. With this, Kamla Harris of Indian origin is going to become Vice President. On the other hand, Trump has once again declared himself the winner of this election and said that Biden is unfairly showing himself the winner in the US election.

After thanking the people after winning the election, Biden tweeted, “America, I feel honored that you have chosen me to lead the country. We have a tough challenge, but I promise you: I will be the President of all Americans, whether you voted for me or not. I will maintain the confidence you have expressed in me. ”
America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country.
The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans – whether you voted for me or not.
I will keep the faith that you have placed in me. pic.twitter.com/moA9qhmjn8
