Barack and Michelle Obama congratulate Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on winning the 2020 election

Barack and Michelle Obama are showing their support for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Four days after Election Day, Biden was projected to win the presidency, and Harris would become the first woman elected to one of the two main executive branch offices.

The former United States president took to Instagram on Saturday to congratulate his former vice president, posting a heartfelt message about how proud he was of both Biden and Senator Harris.

“I couldn’t be more proud to congratulate our next President, Joe Biden, and our next First Lady, Jill Biden. I also couldn’t be more proud to congratulate Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff on the groundbreaking election of Kamala as our next Vice President.” Barack. it started. “In this election, in never before experienced circumstances, Americans turned out in numbers never seen before. And once every vote is counted, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris will have won a historic and decisive victory.”

He went on to express how he knows that Biden has “what it takes to be president and already behaves that way. Because when he enters the White House in January, he will face a series of extraordinary challenges that no incoming president has ever faced” a raging pandemic , an unequal economy and justice system, a democracy in danger and a climate in danger. “

Barack also encouraged all Americans to give Biden a chance and “lend their support” as the election results showed the country is still “deeply divided.”

“It will be up to not just Joe and Kamala, but each of us, to do our part: to go beyond our comfort zone, listen to others, lower the temperature and find common ground from which to move forward, we all remember that we are one nation, under God, “added Barack.

I couldn’t be more proud to congratulate our next President, Joe Biden, and our next First Lady, Jill Biden. Nor could I be more proud to congratulate Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff on the groundbreaking election of Kamala as our next Vice President. In this election, in never-before-seen circumstances, Americans turned out in numbers never seen before. And once each vote is counted, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris will have won a historic and decisive victory. We are lucky that Joe has what it takes to be president and already behaves that way. Because when you enter the White House in January, you will face a series of extraordinary challenges that no incoming president has ever faced: a raging pandemic, an uneven economy and justice system, a democracy at risk, and a climate in peril. I know you will get the job done with the best interests of all Americans in mind, whether or not I have your vote. So I encourage all Americans to give it a shot and support it. Election results at all levels show that the country remains deeply and bitterly divided. It will depend not only on Joe and Kamala, but on each of us, to do our part: go beyond our comfort zone, listen to others, lower the temperature and find common ground from which to move forward, all of us remembering that we are one nation, under God. Finally, I want to thank everyone who worked, organized, and volunteered for the Biden campaign, all Americans who got involved in their own way, and everyone who voted for the first time. Your efforts made a difference. Enjoy this moment. So stay committed. I know it can be exhausting. But for this democracy to endure, it requires our active citizenship and a sustained focus on issues, not just in election season, but every day in between. Our democracy needs us all more than ever. And Michelle and I look forward to supporting our next President and First Lady however we can.

Michelle also posted a photo of her friend Biden and “our first Black and Indian-American Vice President” Harris, as she congratulated them both. Michelle also thanked the people for going to the polls and voting in this monumental election.

“And after celebrating, and we should all take a moment to breathe out after everything we’ve been through, let’s remember that this is just the beginning. It’s a first step,” he reminded people. “Voting in an election is not a magic wand, and neither is winning one. Let’s remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hatred, chaos and division. We have a lot of work to do to reaching out to these people for years to come and connecting with them as they unite us. “

He noted that the path to progress “will always be uphill. We will always have to scrape and crawl to the top of the mountain.” Michelle also stated that people must continue to participate, informed, express themselves and move forward.

He concluded by writing: “My sincere congratulations to Joe and Jill, Kamala and Doug, and to each of you who stepped forward when your country needed you.”

I am beyond excited that my friend Joe Biden and our first Black and Indian-American Vice President Kamala Harris are heading to restore some dignity, competence, and heart to the White House. Our country urgently needs it. Thank you to everyone who has put every ounce of hope and determination in this democracy these past four years, registering voters, taking them to the polls, keeping people informed. In this election, more votes were cast than ever. Is for you. And after celebrating, and we should all take a moment to exhale after everything we’ve been through, let’s remember that this is just the beginning. It is a first step. Voting in an election is not a magic wand, and neither is winning one. Recall that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hatred, chaos and division. We have a lot of work to do to reach out to these people in the years to come and connect with them as they unite us. But we must also recognize that the road to progress will always be uphill. We will always have to scrape and crawl to the top of the mountain. And two years from now, four years from now, once again there will be no margin for error. We now see the reality that we cannot take even the smallest part of our democracy for granted. Every vote must count, and each of us must vote. And as a country, we should make it easier, not harder, to cast a vote. So it’s up to us to stay engaged and informed, keep talking and moving forward. We have to vote in even greater numbers in the upcoming Senate elections in Georgia, and in all state and local elections in the future. We have to promise each other that our approach to this choice will not be an anomaly, but the rule. This is how we can not only feel this way now, but in the months and years to come. It is the only way we will build a nation worthy of our children. My sincere congratulations again to Joe and Jill, Kamala and Doug, and to each of you who stepped forward when your country needed you.

The 77-year-old former vice president defeated President Donald Trump after a narrow run, CBS News reports. According to the outlet, Biden will win Pennsylvania and Nevada, giving him the electoral votes necessary to win, as ballots continued to be counted four days after Election Day.

Harris, for her part, posted a video of herself calling out to Biden and celebrating his victory. He also posted a message for the American people.

“America The Beautiful. This election is much more than @JoeBiden or me. It is about the soul of America and our willingness to fight for it. We have a lot of work ahead of us. Let’s get started,” he said.

Since the news broke, celebrities and political figures have taken to social media to celebrate and express their thoughts and feelings about the election.
