A teenager with a stutter who previously spoke at DNC has expressed his joy over president-elect Joe Biden’s victory, and it’s the most heartwarming thing!
But first, let’s take a look at what happened during the eventful 2020 election…
Joe Biden decided to kick-off his election day by heading to Wilmington, Delaware in order to visit his son, Beau’s, grave before joining the members of his campaign later on.
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.”
This number has been the highest it’s ever been since 1990.
“We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election,” he writes. “We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!”
These victories put him on the right path to re-election, though Biden made things difficult for him as he secured Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Things seemed too close to call for a while there.
While the early statistics favored Donald Trump, Joe Biden hit the stage in Delaware to thank all of his fans and supporters and to also remind them to “keep the faith.”
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.”
In 2016, Wisconsin sat comfortably as a red state, but 4 years later, Joe Biden secured it and it’s 10 electoral votes.
Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley all won re-election in their respective states.
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.
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 get restricted on the Twitter platform as he continues his rant online.
The previous record was held by former president of the United States, Barack Obama, and has now been taken over by Joe Biden.
Bill Stepien, the campaign manager released this statement: “There have been reports of irregularities in several Wisconsin counties which raise serious doubts about the validity of the results. The President is well within the threshold to request a recount and we will immediately do so.”
There has still not been any evidence of voter fraud.
The current president has filed several lawsuits, one now 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.
Taking him ever close to the win.
During a hosted press conference, he was branded as disastrous by key political players.
This meant he was highly likely to win the election overall – and residents had a unique way of celebrating …
In his typical style …
As shortly afterwards, it was announced that Biden had won the Presidential election.
In a heartfelt statement and video posted on Twitter.
Sharing a video showing her breaking the news to Biden that they had won, which quickly went viral.
In the first address to the nation from the new President-elect.
And it included a moving tribute to Joe’s late son, Beau.
As Madam Tussaud’s changed the outfit on Donald Trump’s waxwork from his usual suit and tie to some more appropriate golfing attire.
Well, remember when thirteen-year-old Brayden Harrington met Joe Biden during his campaign trail?
“Aw man, don’t let it define you,” Biden told him. “You are smart as hell. You can do this.”
Making him a true inspiration for kids like Brayden.
And Brayden even spoke at the DNC.
With many feeling heart-warmed by the speech.
“He stutters, and he made it, like, this far in life, as a president-elect, and that’s really, I would say, brave of him to put himself out there, for the whole country, and to be a leader. And that’s just really great of him, to just push himself,” Harrington told CBS.
