The world is celebrating Joe Biden’s historic win over Donald Trump as well as the fact that Kamala Harris will be sworn in as USA’s first female vice-president. Kamala Harris is the face of change, as she steps in as the first black woman and first South Asian-American to ascend to the White House. What changes are in store for the world are yet to be seen but what we do see is an overall sense of relief and euphoria for having a man accused of racism, sexism, bigotry and much more removed from a position of power that effects the whole world.
People from all over the world, from all walks of life, have been congratulating Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan was amongst all the world leaders to have congratulated the Democrats.
“Look forward to President Elect Biden’s Global Summit on Democracy & working with him to end illegal tax havens & stealth of nation’s wealth by corrupt ldrs. We will also continue to work with US for peace in Afghanistan & in the region,” he tweeted on Saturday.
