Joe Biden wins the US election

Joe Biden has won the US election against Donald Trump.

The Democratic leader will become the 46th president of the United States of America.

“I understand the disappointment tonight. I’ve lost a couple of times myself. But now, let’s give each other a chance,” he said on Saturday night.

“This is the time to heal in America.”

Kamala Harris, his running partner, will make history as the first woman, first black woman and the first South Asian woman of descent to become Vice President.

“While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last, because every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities,” she said.
