ICYMI: President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris are TIME's 2020 Person of the Year!
TIME has named President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris as TIME's Person of the Year for 2020. Last month, Biden defeated current president Donald Trump in a historic election. The Biden/Harris win was historic, as Harris became America's first female Vice President-Elect, and she is the first woman of color to hold the title of Vice President-Elect.
TIME Editor-In-Chief spoke about the Biden/Harris win in an essay:
"If Donald Trump was a force for disruption and division over the past four years, Biden and Harris show where the nation is heading: a blend of ethnicities, lived experiences and world views that must find a way forward together if the American experiment is to survive."
TIME did mention during Thursday's televised event, that their choice for Person of the Year is a designation that isn't an award. It is a representation of the influence that a person (or persons) has had in media over the past year.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were on a short-list of candidates, including:
Despite all states certifying their votes, and with Biden winning 306 electoral votes, Trump is still refusing to concede. He continues to influence his followers to spit in the face of Democracy, and become martyrs.
President-Elect Joe Biden, and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris have vowed to govern for ALL Americans, regardless of their political affiliation. They have vowed to unify the country, and to fight coronavirus.
Congratulations to America's President Joe Biden and Madam Vice President Kamala Harris. You two make me proud to be an American. You have the spirit of America in your hearts! Bless you both!
"We did it, Joe!" -Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris.
