It's a party in the USA!
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have won the White House as the next president and vice president of the United States, respectively.
Republicans may be in a state of anger and frustration at the moment following Trump's reelection defeat, but many have celebrated the results of the 2020 US election shortly after the announcement.
In fact, some Americans have taken it offline in different parts of the country to express their happiness over the news.
President-elect Joe Biden's victory over President Trump sparked celebrations in cities across the US, including New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Miami and Washington, DC. https://t.co/yUT25tM4bN pic.twitter.com/J4JdtWaPam— CNN (@CNN) November 7, 2020
Various celebrities and personalities, meanwhile, voiced their support for the newly elected officials on social media—including Kim Kardashian, whose husband, rapper Kanye West ran for president as an independent candidate but later conceded defeat.
Here are some of their reactions:
