Democratic candidate Joe Biden was elected the 46th president of the United States to end all speculation.

According to CNN, Biden won 273 electoral votes. That means he will be sworn in as U.S. president in January next year. Biden defeated U.S. President Donald Trump, who got 213 electoral votes, to become the next president of the state on Saturday. 

Joe Biden has so far won more than 73 million votes, says a BBC report. No president in America was elected with the votes of so many people. On the other hand, Donald Trump secured about 70 million votes. It is also the second-largest vote in the U.S. presidential election.

His security was strengthened by Friday afternoon following his win-win situation in the election. The number of security personnel around the house is increasing. His home and the surrounding area in Wilmington, Delaware state, was declared a “no-fly zone”. The US National Defense Air Space identified Joe Biden’s home area as a “no-fly zone”.

The American people and the silent breath of the two candidates were waiting for the nightmare night after the election ended on Tuesday. Sometimes, the results have been the same, sometimes the results are the results. Trump also accused him of vote fraud. But the Federal Election Commission of the United States has dismissed all complaints.

For a long time in his political career, Biden had been dreaming of going to the White House. This time, the dream was fulfilled by the 77-year-old. He will take over as the 46th president in January.

Who is Joe Biden?

Joe Biden was born on November 20, 1942, in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The eldest of four siblings grew up in Scranton, New Castle County, and Delaware. Father Joseph Robinette Biden Sr. and Irish-born mother Catherine Eugenia Finnegan.

Biden studied history and political science at the University of Delaware. Later he took a degree in law from Syracuse University. 

In 1966, while studying at Syracuse University, Biden married Neilia Hunter. They have three children — Joseph and Beau, Beau, Robert Hunter, and Naomi Christina. In 1972, Neilia was killed in a road accident while buying Christmas trees before Christmas. His daughter Naomi died in the accident.

To Neilia, Biden said that by the age of 30, his dream was to become a senator. The next goal of being a senator is to be president of the United States. He was steadfast in his aim. In 1973, a year after losing Neilia, Biden married Jill Tracy Jacobs. They have a daughter named Ashley Biden.

Joe Biden was elected the New Castle County councilman of Delaware in 1970. Then he didn’t have to look back. He fulfilled his dream of becoming a U.S. senator at the age of 30.

In November 1972, he became the Democratic candidate against the then popular Republican Senator James Caleb Boggs. At the age of 30, he was elected the youngest senator in U.S. history.

Joe Biden was elected a senator from Delaware six times. He established himself on the Senate Judiciary Committee. He also enacted several important laws in the United States, including the Violence Against Women Act.

In 2015, he lost his favorite. Joe was devastated by the death of his eldest son Beau Biden from brain cancer. He withdrew before the Democratic Party was nominated for the 2016 presidential election.

Joe Biden turns around after many developments in personal and political life. Biden served on the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations for a long time.

Before the Gulf War, 11 years ago, President George H.W. Bush voted against The Authorization of Saddam Hussein’s army. Despite the warnings of Biden, the gulf war was decided and a few Americans died in that war.

The following few years, after widespread criticism of the vote, Biden began to show strong international standing, such as his support for the Us position in the Balkan Civil War, the bombing of Iraq, and the establishment of occupation in Afghanistan.

When President George W. Bush proposed a fresh war in Iraq, Biden was strongly supportive of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction.

After the Iraq war, Biden turned to the left. He opposed the increase in American troops in Iraq and called for the withdrawal of troops from there.

As vice president, he advised against strengthening US forces in Afghanistan and launching operations against Osama bin Laden. He also defended the U.S. support of Saudi Arabia in Yemen’s civil war after announcing his intention to run for the Democratic presidential election.
