Without realizing it, whether the US president comes from the Republican Party or the Democratic Party, the world alliance has shifted.

Local residents wearing masks of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris wave as they ride on a trishaw along a street in Solo, central Java on November 8, 2020 to celebrate their victory in the 2020 US presidential election.

After going through a long and tense vote count, Joe Biden from the Democratic Party was finally declared the 46th president-elect of the United States, defeating incumbent President Donald Trump of the Republican Party.

The final vote tally showed Biden pocketed 306 electoral votes, above of the 270 electoral votes needed to win, while Trump won 232 electoral votes. At present, the recount of voting results in Georgia is still ongoing, but so far Biden is still ahead by around 15,000 votes. Even if Trump wins in Georgia, the additional 16 electoral votes from this state will not change Biden\'s victory.
