Joe Biden is being congratulated as US President-Elect and Kamala Harris, as the VP-Elect. In fact, media, most of the US population, including more than 76 millions who voted for Biden and those who went along with the outcome, and a lot of leaders around the world, have accepted that Joe Biden will be the US next president. Meanwhile, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are moving forward with the presidential preparations and necessities of building an administration highlighting their agenda.
“We are already beginning the transition. We’re well underway. The fact that they’re not willing to acknowledge we’ve won is not of much consequence,” Joe Biden told the media.

Joe Biden Getting Ready for the Transition
Since the AP projected the results (see AfroAmerica Network:US 2020 Presidential Elections: AP Projects that Joe Biden Has Defeated Donald Trump, Becoming the 46th US President ) Joe Biden strategy has been to focus on thetraditional path previous president-elects have taken as they were getting ready to assume the presidency. The path includes the following steps: appointment of transitional team, identifying and vetting the candidates for official political positions, contacts with international leaders, and solidify their political agenda and key policies.
