The former president is set to be back in power following Biden's election win...
Joe Biden is officially our new president...Giving the Democratic party a huge victory.
People are overjoyed...And former Democratic president Barack Obama was quick to speak out about Biden's win.
But to begin...Let's recap some of the key moments that the election brought us these past few days ...
Joe Biden visited his son's grave.

Donald Trump prematurely announced election win.Despite there being no indication as to who would take the crown, Donald Trump announced that he had won the election. This was a false statement on behalf of the president, who was condemned by the Biden campaign and several Republicans who referred to the claim as "outrageous."
The highest voter turnout was announced.
This number has been the highest it's ever been since 1990.

Donald Trump accused the Democrats of trying to "steal" the election."We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election," he wrote. "We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!"
Donald Trump told workers to "stop counting."According to CNN, this was an "attack" on democracy. White House reporter, Stephen Collinson, analyzed the remarks and concluded: "Trump's remarks essentially amounted to a demand for the legally cast votes of American citizens not to be recorded in a historic act of disenfranchisement. And they brought closer the potential constitutional nightmare that many have feared since Trump started to tarnish an election that he apparently worried he could lose months ago."
Biden was declared the winner of Wisconsin.In 2016, Wisconsin sat comfortably as a red state, but 4 years later, Joe Biden has secured it and it's 10 electoral votes.
"The Squad" all won their re-election.Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley all won re-election in their respective states.
Donald Trump raised speculation on election credibility.In a Twitter rant, the president claimed that things had taken a "strange" turn after he was leading last night when the early figures showed he was leading in almost all battleground and swing states, even though many journalists and political advisors have claimed that there is no evidence of voter fraud in any state.
Donald trump's tweets were restricted on Twitter.With the label "Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process," the president's tweets got restricted on the Twitter platform as he continued his rant online.
Joe Biden received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history.The previous record was held by former president of the United States, Barack Obama, and has now been taken over by Joe Biden.
Donald Trump filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania.The current president has filed several lawsuits, one targeting Pennsylvania, a state that he was projected to win. He has also tweeted that he's had a "big legal win" in the state, even though no evidence has yet been supplied to back it up.
Trump then broke his thirty-six-hour silence with a White House press briefing...And, of course, he wasted no time in expressing his somewhat illegitimate confidence in his chances of re-election.
He said this:"If you count the legal votes, I win."
The president then branded media polling as "election interference"..."These phoney [fake] polls were designed to keep our voters at home and create the illusion of momentum for Mr. Biden, and diminish the Republicans' ability to raise funds - they were suppression polls, everyone knows that now."
He continued:"We were winning in all the key locations, a lot actually! And then our numbers started miraculously getting widdled away in secret, and they wouldn't allow legally permissable observers." Trump then suggested he had been cheated out of this election by the Democrats and that he'll be taking this further to court right away.
People were left gob-smacked following the president's wild claims...
And many interpreted his chaotic speech as an indication of his upcoming defeat.
Maybe this is Trump’s version of a concession speech. Despite the defiant words he seems deflated. He may never pub… https://t.co/oMeSjbMYqk— Sadanand Dhume (@Sadanand Dhume)1604621635.0
Is Trump finally starting to give up?
Or was this speech just another attempt at desperately grasping for straws?
@KingofShirgar Trump’s speech was terrible tbh, he looked exhausted, deflated, not a good sign. He didn’t say anyt… https://t.co/Rxgdfm09zp— Richard Warner (@Richard Warner)1604621581.0
