And Joe Biden was ultimately projected to be the forty-sixth president of the United States.

Though he didn't win by a landslide, his victory was a historic one.

Biden won over seventy-four million votes - more than any other president in American history - exceeding the previous record President Barack Obama set in 2008.

An accomplishment current POTUS, Donald Trump, didn't quite manage in his 2016 win when he received just 46.4% of the popular vote.

Biden's win has made history in other ways, too.

His vice president, Kamala Harris, will be the first woman to hold the office, and will also be the nation’s first Black and South Asian person to take on the role.

Biden spoke out shortly after he was declared victorious.

He tweeted that he was "honored" America had chosen him as their leader. "America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country. 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."

Former POTUS and close friend of Biden's, Barack Obama, also offered his congratulations.

In a statement, Obama detailed his pride in Biden and Harris' historic win, before noting that "our democracy needs all of us more than ever."

In the days following his win, Biden hit the ground running.

The president-elect and his team wasted no time in launching their official transition website and social media channels, laying the groundwork for taking over as US president.

He firstly hired "agency review teams" to consider how he wants to run the country.

In a statement, Biden's team said, as per Sky News: "Across the board, we will continue laying the foundation for the incoming Biden-Harris administration to successfully restore faith and trust in our institutions and lead the federal government."

But it seems that the coronavirus pandemic will be their number one priority.

The statement continued: "The crises we are facing are severe - from a global pandemic to an economic recession to racial injustice to the climate crisis. Our work continues full speed today."

Shortly after his win, Biden then addressed the nation in his first coronavirus briefing.

There, he named a thirteen-member task force to help combat the coronavirus as the nation surpassed ten million cases, all while stressing the importance of solidarity. "It doesn't matter who you voted for. We are Americans and our country is under threat."

He reiterated our country's powerful history with facing crises...

And urged Americans far and wide to "put aside their differences" to fight this crisis.

Very quickly, people couldn't help but note the refreshing difference in Biden's leadership.

Biden has long been firm in the belief that, while we're still finalizing the vaccine, face masks are the "most effective" means of combating the virus.

"The single most effective thing we can do to stop the spread of COVID is wearing a mask. The head of the CDC warned this fall & for the foreseeable future, a mask remains the most potent weapon against the virus," he stated.

He continued:

"My message today to everyone is this: it doesn’t matter who you voted for, or where you stood before election day, it doesn’t matter your party or point of view. We can save tens of thousands of lives if we wear a mask for the next few months." He then added that "a mask is not a political statement."

And a few weeks back, Biden reiterated his stance on masks...

By revealing what he will ask Americans to do when he comes into office.

During his first joint interview with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, Biden shared details on his coronavirus plans.

Speaking to CNN he described his plans "as a balance between ensuring that Americans believe the vaccine is safe and instituting a number of plans that will curb the spread of the virus without shutting down the economy."

And, when asked about the vaccine, Biden explained that he will get the vaccine once it is deemed safe to do so.

And, in order to show Americans that he has confidence in it, he will have his vaccine administered in public.

He also revealed that he will ask Americans to wear a mask for 100 days.

Biden said, "Just 100 days to mask, not forever - 100 days. And I think we’ll see a significant reduction."

But while it’s been a great month for the Biden’s.

The latest news about Joe’s niece, Caroline, is not quite as positive.

She’s avoided jail.

Despite pleading guilty after being given a DUI last year.

Caroline crashed into a tree.

And it’s not the first time she’s been in trouble with the law. In fact, it’s the third.

But she secured a plea deal and will spend no time behind bars.

She was sentenced to five or more months of probation, including 20 days of rehab. She will also have to pay a fine of $1,990 and do 12 hours of community service, the New York Post reports.

In the past she was arrested for spending money on a stolen credit card.

And another time for hitting an NYPD Officer...
