WASHINGTON : Kamala Harris crashed through one of the world’s highest glass ceilings on Saturday to be elected America’s first woman vice president, making history and helping bring to an end Donald Trump’s turbulent rule.
Harris entered the election on Tuesday, the first black attorney general in California history, and was elected the first South Asian woman in the U.S. Senate.
By winning the post of vice chairman, she will stay away from the heartbeat of leading the United States and lay the foundation for the ultimate honor.
Biden is expected to have a 77-year term of office, so Harris will win the Democratic presidential nomination in four years.
As the first female president of the United States, this may give her more historical creativity.
“This election is about so much more than Joe Biden or me,” she wrote on Twitter after US news media called the election in their favor based on state results.
“It’s about the soul of America and our willingness to fight for it. We have a lot of work ahead of us. Let’s get started.”
Since becoming Biden’s running mate in August, she has criticized Trump for the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as the chaotic handling of racism, the economy and the president’s suppression of immigration.
The 56-year-old Harris was born as an American immigrant. Her father is from Jamaica and her mother is from India. Their lives and her own life reflect the American dream to some extent.
