The president, who is playing golf at his club in Sterling, Virginia, added that “Joe Biden has not been certified as a winner in any state, and even less in the hard-fought states that are heading for mandatory counts, or in which our campaign has presented legal demands on the validity and legality that could determine the final winner ”.

The veteran Democratic politician Joe Biden became the new president-elect of the United States on Saturday, a position he will assume at the age of 78 after a life dedicated to public service that culminates in the expulsion of Donald Trump from the White House.

Former vice president and “friend” of Barack Obama (2009-2017), Biden won the elections by insistence, after two frustrated attempts in 1988 and 2008, a primary that he won by carom when most of his opponents withdrew in his favor and a few elections against the almighty Trump in the midst of a pandemic.

Biden decided to go to the White House with the banner of recovering the legacy that Obama built and that Trump has destroyed after Hillary Clinton was the Democratic candidate for the Presidency in 2016, without success.

During this last year he has had to face questions about his age and mental health, and it is that his constant lapses have been the reason for multiple gossip and an electoral weapon against him. Also because due to the pandemic, he has spent much of the campaign locked up in his Delaware residence.

In addition, at 78 years old, he will be the oldest president in the history of the United States, which has also put all the spotlight on the vice president-elect, Kamala Harris.

Biden has insistently wielded his eight years alongside his “friend” Barack Obama in the White House, as the icing on the cake to a long political career in the US Senate (1973-2009).

He also often remembers his humble origins in Scranton (Pennsylvania) – his father was a car salesman – in the heart of the American industrial belt, which he has managed to win back for the Democrats after he opted for Trump in 2016.

In doing so, he appeals to two demographic sectors that are key to his majority: the African-American community and working-class white voters, whose confluence already allowed the comfortable victories of Democrat Obama in 2008 and 2012.

Added to that is his historic selection of Harris, a California senator, as his running mate.

“I have the great honor to announce that I have selected Kamala Harris – an intrepid fighter for the common citizen, and one of the best civil servants – as my running mate,” Biden said when revealing her choice last August.

Harris, 55, is the first African-American woman of Asian descent to be nominated for the Vice Presidency by one of the two great parties, and with whom Biden seeks to energize his image as a seasoned and veteran politician.

She also becomes Biden’s natural successor four years from now, as the president-elect has stated that he will not run for re-election.

Biden won the primaries against an unsuspected internal adversary just a decade ago: the blazing rise of the leftist internal wing embodied by Senator Bernie Sanders, who he defeated after a party operation to unify the moderate sector that he ended up leading.

With his 36 years as a senator and 8 as vice president of curriculum, from this sector he is accused of lacking the courage to face powers such as the financier of Wall Street, and of not wanting to carry out the structural changes that the country requires.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the rising progressive stars and natural successor to Sanders, has acknowledged the growing rift within the Democrats by assuring that “in any other country it would be unthinkable” for her and Biden to be “in the right place. same political party ”.

Biden supported the Iraq war, defends the private health insurance system, and pushed for justice reform in the 1990s that ended tens of thousands of African Americans behind bars for drug offenses.

Despite the fact that the two souls of the party have shown their division, especially over the proposal of the left rejected by Biden to establish a universal health system in the United States, the two platforms have joined enthusiastically to expel Trump from the White House.

Charisma is another of his strengths, something he has shown in his warm and spontaneous interactions with citizens, but the unusual situation derived from the coronavirus pandemic has been an obstacle for him.

Biden has not carried out any massive campaign rallies and has concentrated all his efforts on developing a constant virtual campaign, which was the ridicule of the Republicans when accusing him of not leaving his basement.

What has favored, paradoxically, control (although not 100%) one of its main brands of the house: its frequent verbal gaffes.

“I am a blunder machine. But, by God, what a wonderful thing compared to a guy who can’t tell the truth, “he joked at the end of last year when comparing himself to Trump.

One of the campaign nights of the primaries he got confused before he started talking to his wife, Jill Biden, and his sister, Valerie Biden.

But he has also been at the forefront of his party, spurring changes that now make his party proud: In 2012, he claimed he was “absolutely comfortable” with gay marriage, forcing Obama to accelerate his explicit support for those unions. and contributed to its final legalization by the Supreme Court in 2015.

Biden is already the president-elect but will have to govern in one of the most difficult moments imaginable, with a political, economic and health crisis that devastates the country, with the Senate possibly against blocking his initiatives and with the Supreme Court with a historic conservative majority .
