Kamala Harris Rings Joe Biden To Say 'We Did It' After Election Win

Kamala Harris has shared a clip of the moment she spoke to Joe Biden following their election success:

Kamala, who is set to become the first woman (and woman of colour) to hold vice presidency, said to Biden: "We did it, we did it, Joe. You're going to be the next President of the United States."

The heart-warming tweet has since racked up an ever-growing 2 million likes and currently has over 413,000 retweets.

The 59-year-old posted his message on to Twitter with the caption: "Congratulations to my friends, @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris - our next President and Vice President of the United States."

In his statement, he wrote: "I could not be prouder to congratulate our next President, Joe Biden, and our next First Lady, Jill Biden.

"I also couldn't be prouder to congratulate Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff for Kamala's groundbreaking election as our next Vice President.

"In this election, under circumstances never experienced, Americans turned out in numbers never seen. And once every vote is counted President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris will have won a historic and decisive victory."

Joe Biden claimed victory today (7 November) after winning the state of Pennsylvania - taking his electoral college vote to 284 and passing the 270 needed to win.

After it was announced that Biden is to become the 46th US President, he tweeted: "America, I'm honoured that you have chosen me to lead our great country.

"The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans - whether you voted for me or not. I will keep the faith that you have placed in me."

Biden was declared the winner as the vote counting continued into its fifth day - after he was given a lead of more than 30,000 votes in Pennsylvania around 4pm UK time.

As the counting went on (and on and on) Trump made unfounded allegations of 'fraud' and claimed there was 'shenanigans' involving illegal votes.
