Well, it's official, folks: After four years of Donald Trump's presidency, two years of campaigning from both sides, and four days of ballot counting, Joe Biden is our next president. The news broke just before midday Saturday, November 7, with the critical battleground state of Pennsylvania being called for Biden, which allowed him enough electoral votes to be officially declared the next president-elect. Kamala Harris also made history as the first Black and Asian-American woman to be vice president.
Many people on Twitter were absolutely over the moon. Here, some of the reactions to the news.

I couldn't let my kids watch Trump on television bc I didn't know what cruel or crass thing he might say. I can't wait for them to grow up with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as role models.

A Lovely Moment on CNN
Emotional moment on CNN with @VanJones68 breaking down: "It's easier to be a parent this morning, it's easier to be a dad. It's easier to tell your kids character matters, it matters. Telling the truth matters. Being a good person matters." pic.twitter.com/8U2q4djZSj

For the first time, a Black and South Asian woman has been elected Vice President of the United States.
