On Nov. 7, it was announced that Joe Biden will be the next president of the U.S.A. and that Kamala Harris will become the first female, first Black and first South Asian vice president.

Biden, 77, defeated his Republican rival to become the 46th president after more than three days of uncertainty as election officials sorted through mail-in votes that delayed processing.

Biden crossed 270 electoral college votes with a win in Pennsylvania, and has now reached 290.
