The joyful gatherings in Washington and New York and cities all over America were proof positive that the majority of Americans are thrilled that their national nightmare is over and Donald Trump has been turfed.
President-elect Joe Biden actually received more votes than any candidate for U.S. president has ever received.
Accolades and congratulation for the president-elect poured in from leaders around the world.

The Narcissist-in-Chief, who denied climate change and lied to his people about the danger of the COVID-19 pandemic, who demeaned America’s allies and embraced dictators, has been fired.

The tweet from the mayor of Paris captures the feeling of people all over the world. Welcome back, America!
