The End of Trump? Biden & Harris Claim Victory in Historic Election, Vowing to Heal Divided Nation

The Trump presidency is coming to an end. Former Vice President Joe Biden is projected to have won the election after pulling ahead in Pennsylvania, giving him more than the 270 electoral votes needed to become president.

Biden's running mate Kamala Harris will make history as the first female vice president, as well as the first African American, Indian American and Asian American elected to the office.

Although President Trump has so far refused to concede as his campaign files a slew of lawsuits challenging the results in several states, plans are already underway to shape the next administration and prepare for the next four years.

Democracy Now! speaks with Bree Newsome Bass, an artist, antiracist activist and housing rights advocate in North Carolina, and professor Eddie Glaude, chair of Princeton University's Department of African American Studies, and gets a reaction from Indian American Congressmember Ro Khanna of California.
