Organizations tracking the Presidential election projected Saturday that Joe Biden will win the election and become the 46th President of the United States.

Yet legions of his devotees in Detroit, Phoenix and Philadelphia have been crying foul all week, parroting the president's bogus claims that Biden and the Democrats cheated their way to victory. They are not our enemies.

But a more stable and consultative approach with United States allies towards China's trade policy, as expected under Biden, will be beneficial to Australia, experts say.

Jessica Tasucu, an opera teacher from Somerville, was singing and dancing on the sidewalk and said she felt relieved when a friend texted her the news of Biden's win. The nation's new "momala" walked out onto the stage to the tune of Mary J Blige's "Work That", and her supporters rejoiced at her nod to female empowerment.

The worldwide press also focused on the feat of Kamala Harris, Biden's running mate who will become the United States' first female black vice president. While Harris will be the next vice president, the first woman and the first person of colour to hold the office.

Biden may have received the most votes - more than 74 million - of any presidential candidate in US history, but Trump is next on that list, despite four long, chaotic years of divisive dog-whistles, petty recriminations and ham-handed governance.

He has said he would take a tougher stand on Russian Federation, expressed strong support for Ukraine, and would rejoin the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran, if Tehran holds up its end of the deal.

COVID in Minks Spreading to Humans

Mr Trump has pointed to delays in processing the vote in some states to allege with no evidence that there was fraud and to argue that his rival was trying to seize power - an extraordinary charge by a sitting president trying to sow doubt about a bedrock democratic process.

As of Saturday night, more than 237,000 Americans had died from the coronavirus.

Biden has said he would work with the other powers involved - Britain, France, Germany, Russia, and China, as well as the European Union - to amend aspects of the agreement once Iran is back in compliance.

Joe Biden pledges to be a President for all Americans. Both nodded to that history-making moment. Describing it as a truly historic election, Neera Tanden, president and CEO of the Center for American Progress said Biden-Harris victory was powered by one of the most diverse coalitions in history, with stunning apparent victories from Georgia to Arizona to the Midwest.

That is what Barack Obama did in 2012, when he said: 'I just spoke with Governor Romney and I congratulated him and Paul Ryan on a hard-fought campaign.' Romney gave a gracious speech, where he said 'I wish all of them well, but particularly the president, the first lady, and their daughters'.

Henriette Sonne came to the US about a year ago from her home country of Denmark. She said before his passing he wrote, "democracy is not a state, it is an act". "You chose Joe Biden".

A crowd of supporters formed at the intersection of Boylston and Charles streets around 1:30 p.m., and drivers passing by were honking or leaning out of their cars to cheer along. Minivans in attendance were adorned with Biden-Harris signs, SUVs were decorated with Biden-Harris blankets and tapestries and more than a few supporters were seen discreetly mixing cocktails.

Analysts have said it could take the Biden administration several months to put together its entire foreign policy team and set more specific priorities.

"I cried. A lot".
