Nationwide, Americans took to the streets in celebration of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 elections, after he surpassed the 270 electoral votes required to win the White House by flipping the battleground states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
“I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not,” Biden tweeted shorty after his win was confirmed by CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, The New York Times and many other news outlets. “I will keep the faith that you have placed in me.”
Cheers and car horns honking were heard throughout the streets of America’s major metropolitan cities, including New York City, D.C., Los Angeles and Philadelphia — which was crucial in clinching the Biden win.
Some were even seen busting out bubbly beverages in the streets.
