After nearly four days of ballot counting, the results of the US elections were finally out last night. Joe Biden won the next presidency of United States of America defeating the incumbent Donald Trump.
America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) November 7, 2020
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
Soon after winning the elections, Kamala Harris, the vice-president elect shared a video of her calling to congratulate Joe Biden.
And of course, Twitter had a lot of reactions and responses to the historic result. People from around the world, including family, friends and world leaders, congratulated Biden and Harris on their big victory.
Heartiest congratulations @KamalaHarris! Your success is pathbreaking, and a matter of immense pride not just for your chittis, but also for all Indian-Americans. I am confident that the vibrant India-US ties will get even stronger with your support and leadership.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) November 7, 2020
Congratulations @JoeBiden on your spectacular victory! As the VP, your contribution to strengthening Indo-US relations was critical and invaluable. I look forward to working closely together once again to take India-US relations to greater heights. pic.twitter.com/yAOCEcs9bN— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) November 7, 2020
And after we celebrate — and we should all take a moment to exhale after everything we’ve been through — let’s remember that this is just a beginning. It’s a first step. Voting in one election isn’t a magic wand, and neither is winning one.— Michelle Obama (@MichelleObama) November 7, 2020
There was some expectation that foreign leaders would wait until a Trump concession before congratulating Biden. The fact so many didn’t speaks to the momentum behind Biden and foreign assessments of Trump’s legal arguments.— Adam Taylor (@mradamtaylor) November 7, 2020
Congratulations President-elect @JoeBiden & @KamalaHarris on your victory in the US Presidential election. With so many issues facing the international community, your message of unity is one we share. New Zealand looks forward to working with you both! https://t.co/VTGRM4mHEK— Jacinda Ardern (@jacindaardern) November 7, 2020
Congratulations @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris. Joe, we’ve had a long & warm personal relationship for nearly 40 years, and I know you as a great friend of Israel. I look forward to working with both of you to further strengthen the special alliance between the U.S. and Israel.— Benjamin Netanyahu (@netanyahu) November 8, 2020
Just dawned on me—For the first time in years, US will have someone who likes evidence, governs using science, won’t peddle quack theories and drugs, will fact check statements and accept fact check corrections, & will put reality before imaginary conspiracies. REFRESHING. #Biden pic.twitter.com/ACPfLIwnqo— Eric Feigl-Ding (@DrEricDing) November 8, 2020
The voters have spoken, and they have chosen @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris to be our next president and vice president.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) November 7, 2020
It's a history-making ticket, a repudiation of Trump, and a new page for America.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen. Onward, together. pic.twitter.com/YlDY9TJONs
Congratulations, @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris. Our two countries are close friends, partners, and allies. We share a relationship that’s unique on the world stage. I’m really looking forward to working together and building on that with you both.— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) November 7, 2020
I feel like our ancestors are rejoicing.— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) November 7, 2020
For the first time, a Black and South Asian woman has been elected Vice President of the United States.
My sister has made history and blazed a trail for future generations to follow.
We love you, @KamalaHarris.
I want to congratulate all those who worked so hard to make this historic day possible. Now, through our continued grassroots organizing, let us create a government that works for ALL and not the few. Let us create a nation built on justice, not greed and bigotry.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) November 7, 2020
You know, Joe Biden is not a perfect person. But I believe he is a good person. An empathic person. A caring person. A public servant. And it is reassuring to know that someone like that will be our President again.— Andrew Baggarly (@extrabaggs) November 8, 2020
Trump can at least take solace in the fact that no president in history has had a farewell party bigger than his.— Marc Shkolnick (@mshkolnick) November 8, 2020
Goodbye Trump. China bids you farewell. We are expecting a new wave of cooperation with President Elect Biden.— 美麗的男何金濤 🇨🇳🇵🇰🇳🇵🇧🇩🇹🇷🇮🇷🇱🇰🇦🇫🇷🇺🇦🇿🗨 (@CNPakWW) November 4, 2020
Today is a good day.— Van Jones (@VanJones68) November 7, 2020
It’s easier to be a parent this morning.
Being a good person MATTERS.
This is a big deal.
It’s easy to do it the cheap way and get away with stuff — but it comes back around.
Today is a good day.#PresidentBiden#VotersDecided pic.twitter.com/h8YgZK4nmk

My god it feels like I just took off a weighted blanket, unhooked my bra and taken out my extensions all at once— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) November 7, 2020
Today isn’t about celebrating in the face of those that oppose your views and values, but celebrating from a place of LOVE - combating the hate that has encompassed and oppressed so many of us the past four years. Let the healing begin. 🙏🏼— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) November 7, 2020
