Ready for office: President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris 

US President-elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris tweeted out their victory messages immediately after being ‘called winners’ by various media outlets. 

Even as the US and the world awaited official announcements, Biden, the 77-year-old, Pennsylvania-born senator said he was ‘honoured.’ 

“I am honoured that you have chosen me to lead this great country,” he said in the first of tweets. Staying in line with what he had earlier said and reasserting the ‘non-partisan and inclusionary’ vision of his, Biden said he would be the President for all Americans. “I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not. I will keep the faith you have placed in me,” he said in the tweet. Biden had said the same words during his last presidential debate.    



Kamala Harris’s said the election was much more than Joe Biden or herself. “It’s about the soul of America and our willingness to fight for it. We have a lot of work ahead of us. Let’s get started,” she tweeted.

Kamala Harris will become the first woman, the first Black American and first Asian American to win the second-highest U.S. office. It is also widely speculated that Kamala Harris will be the obvious nominee for the top office in 2024 as Joe Biden may not run for a second term due to advanced age. 

Kamala, the senator from California, was San Francisco’s first female district attorney. The Biden administration is expected to widely benefit from her legal and criminal justice background with regard to the tackling of its race and gender issues in particular. 

A video on Kamala Harris’s Twitter showed her talking to Joe Biden and saying, “We did it. You are going to be the President of the United States.”
