Western allies congratulate new president-elect
Leaders of the United States' traditional Western allies are offering their congratulations to the incoming Joe Biden administration. Democrat Joe Biden has defeated President Donald Trump to become the 46th president of the United States.
Biden wins White House, vowing new direction for divided US. - Harris becomes first Black woman, South Asian elected VP. - Joe Biden: Stumbles, tragedies and, now, delayed triumph.
In a statement Saturday, Obama says Biden has "Got what it takes to be President and already carries himself that way," because he will enter the White House facing "a series of extraordinary challenges no incoming President ever has."
Congratulations @JoeBiden on your spectacular victory! As the VP, your contribution to strengthening Indo-US relations was critical and invaluable. I look forward to working closely together once again to take India-US relations to greater heights. pic.twitter.com/yAOCEcs9bN— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) November 7, 2020
States are still counting votes in the presidential election, Democrat Joe Biden is on the verge of victory and President Donald Trump is at his Virginia golf club for the first time since the end of September.

It's a history-making ticket, a repudiation of Trump, and a new page for America.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen. Onward, together. pic.twitter.com/YlDY9TJONs
