Joe Biden, former vice president for Barack Obama, has been elected the 46th president in the 2020 election. Having the most votes cast for one candidate in all of America's history, Biden received over 75 million votes. The election truly demonstrated the power of the people in 2020’s election.
Now that we have some background of the election, a question that comes up in social media, and many news outlets is, “How will Joe Biden’s history and life experiences affect his presidency?” So starting off with the most common look on Biden’s public figure, he was brought about mainly through his work with President Barack Obama, being his vice president at the time. He has been in the political sphere for a while now, having firsthand view of the works that go into a presidency; he is not a novice in this field.
Joe Biden is also an American citizen, knowing the struggles, the ups and the downs of the country he is very familiar with the struggles Americans face. Also being very aware of the country's history and understanding that though we have progressed we are far from what this country promised to be.
We also have some past events in Biden’s life that show us his struggles, losing his daughter Naomi Christina Biden, and his son Joseph Biden. This I believe gives us some sense of trust in our president and a sense of understanding about how we are no different from one another, as far as our feelings, our experiences, our pain, and our joy. So I can confidently say with a president so similar to the people struggling every day, we can almost guarantee that he'll put his best effort in making America a safer, and better country for us all.
