the and these are live pictures of the same this is outside the white house has just gone i believe 11 o'clock at night there people have been gathering there for hours. ok we have to cross one it's with us this hour rob reynolds is in comma harrison's home state of california but let's begin with mike hanna who is in joe biden's home state of delaware mike let's talk about joe biden's victory speech previous president elect have come out and in their victory speech is really focused on their to do list joe biden's message seemed to be one of compromise of wanting to work together of of healing divisions. or very much so after a truly bitter and vitriolic election campaign and also 4 years in particular of deep partisanship joe biden making very clear that the people have got to start coming together now is the time to huey lewis what he said and for the 1st time in
one of his speeches he directly address president trump sharing the disappointment as he put it of losing a presidential race joe biden has done that twice before but he said directly to president trump let's give each other a chance let's meet let's lower the temperature and stop treating our opponents as our enemies well this has been a constant theme of joe biden during the campaign and in the days since the polls closed and that is that he's going to be a president who says for all americans even those who did not vote for him a very much an attempt to bring a nation together a nation that is deeply divided but given the vitriol and the anger of the past 4 years and this campaign it's going to be a very tough task mike one of the biggest if not the biggest issue right now coronavirus record numbers of infection still across the u.s. what it joe biden had to say about that. well it is his
immediate priority joe biden made that very clear that this is the 1st thing he and his vice president elect are going to focus on in fact it is something they've started immediately joe biden months ago drew up a plan to combat the pandemic and certainly this is something that he feels is absolutely essential there has been no national plan in place under the truck that ministration it's been left to governors to operate in a patchwork kind of manner but no overarching national directive in terms for example of testing of contact tracing none of this is being put in place and these are the type of elements that joe biden is going to employ but this is what he had to say about the issue of the pen demick or worry getting through getting program under control we carried out in prayer the economy restore our vitality around least life's most precious moments are going our grandchildren our children our
birthdays weddings graduation all the moments that matter most to us until we get it under control. on monday i will marry a group of leading scientists and experts as transition advisors. to help take the bright hairs colored fragment converted into an actual blueprint that will start on january the 20th 2021. but they are also going to be other pledges on policy joe biden making very clear that he's going to reverse the process of leaving the world health organization he's going to rejoin the paris climate to court he's going to reinstate some 100 environmental regulations that were put in place in the obama era and take that away and to try and get all this is going to be probably the most dramatic switch in a ministration in decades. ok thank you so much for that update there mike hanna
live for us in delaware that's going to rob reynolds who is in los angeles california as if we thank all the house and home state rob joe biden received more votes than any other candidate in u.s. history but that doesn't mean it's going to be straightforward doesn't mean we don't know for example who's going to control the senate with this runoff and george. yeah that's absolutely true kim we don't know who's going to control the senate and if in fact the senate does end up under the control of the republican party then joe biden is going to have a lot of difficulty i believe in civi or fulfilling his promises that he made on the campaign trail for example raising taxes on the wealthiest earners in the united states extending the affordable care act and including a public option to give health care insurance to more and more americans.
and a host of other things that as. mike just mentioned he can do a great deal through executive action but for the really big stuff. the you know immigration reform for example he's going to have to work with congress and if congress is under republican if the senate is under republican control that means compromises or deadlock and i just wanted to mention one other thing kim because we heard that very notable quote from. vice president elect camel harris about how remarkable it was that she that america has now elected a woman as as vice president and that certainly is something that many americans are congratulating themselves about but you know it's sort of our job as journalists is to look a little bit more critically at the at this and i was thinking well gee maybe
someday the united states will elect a female head of government just like the u.k. and germany and japan argentina liberia new zealand and out of pakistan and india. have to have done in the past over even some decades ago so that that is less i think a. testament to. the courage of joe biden then it is to the remarkable sort of backwardness in this area of the united states. ok thank you for that rob reynolds' live from los angeles where president trump was playing golf and mr biden was declared the winner of the election but he has not conceded the race in a statement he said we all know why joe biden is rushing to falsely poses the winner and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him they don't want the
truth to be exposed beginning monday our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully up held and the rightful winner is ceases our white house correspondent kimberly huggett has more now from washington d.c. . so many americans who didn't vote for donald trump are saying why does he just concede you have to remember when 74000000 people vote for joe biden but just more than 70000000 vote for donald trump and he promised to be their champion in their fight or they expect to see that so if he were to suddenly just give up when he thinks there's been some sort of irregularity that would not be delivering on that promise so donald trump is moving forward because he promised to do so but eventually that will come to a natural end so we'll have to see what happens i think the other thing we should really remind our viewers is you can probably hear the party behind me there is this when we talk the 74 to 70000000 voters the good the millions of voters
generally live in urban centers and those that support donald trump live outside and the reason they like donald trump is because they felt they didn't have a voice in urban centers particularly this one washington d.c. and so they want to make sure their voices are still heard even if their candidate ultimately does not win this election. as i mentioned earlier there have been celebrations in cities across america people around launch numbers welcoming the news of joe biden's victory as on the is in new york city following the black lines met a mob that's been taking place there. these are rights matters protesters working on the streets of new york town manhattan new york city where i said to you now as you can hear you spine is. times square right celebrating your parent because many of you find it i'm never walk through the streets of manhattan these are plaquemines parish registers and attrition shows you how
important the park rights matter movement was to mobilizing young people particularly to come out to vote for joe biden. they are now taking a meeting. here now taking the middle of the street to honor all of those black men and women there think you'll get states. still to come here on al-jazeera we will have all of the rest of the day's news in libya gets ready for a new president a former bank a look at the challenges he faced. prominent opposition politician in the ivory coast are arrested they are going to russia and make.

you're watching are just there a reminder of our top stories this hour joe biden has celebrated his election to the u.s. presidency with a speech to the country spoke of uniting a nation that is seen deep divisions with racial unrest often dominating the headlines also appoint experts next week to help them tackle the pandemic once he takes charge. biden's running mate and vice president elect carla harris is also making history she's the 1st woman and 1st person of color to hold the job. president trump meanwhile is continuing to make unsubstantiated claims about voting for his campaign his valves to amount to more legal challenges the values not concede the race joe biden was golfing when the election result was announced.
leaders from around the world have been sending their congratulations to joe biden will start in europe german chancellor angela merkel has issued a statement saying she looks forward to future cooperation with president biden and that the transatlantic friendship between the u.s. and germany is irreplaceable if we're to master the great challenges of our time india's prime minister narendra modi also congratulated biden saying as the vice president his contribution to strengthening into u.s. relations was critical and invaluable that he looks forward to working closely together once again to take india u.s. relations to greater heights and the emir of qatar which hosts the largest u.s. military base in the middle east twitters about how he looks forward to working together to continue strengthening the friendship between the 2 countries while iran's supreme leader took a sharply different tone mocking the state of u.s. politics and calling the elections a spectacle and an example of what he called the ugly face of liberal democracy in
the us and the political civil and moral decline of the us regime. well more reaction from tehran has said big well there hasn't been much of an official reaction however the vice president of iran is hot jane giving he's tweeted out saying that the era of trump and his adventurism and war mongering team has come to an end he said that his policy characteristics were violating international law from the environment to enqueue main sanctions against iran now officially iran has said that there is no difference to iran doesn't matter who the us president is iran's policy towards the united states will remain the same in fact the supreme leader khamenei just said the of the day that the united states have chosen iran enemy but there will be reformist politicians from president hassan rouhani and his reformist camp that would be cautiously optimistic that's because joe biden has
said that he will return to the 2015 nuclear deal the reformist put in a lot of political capital and the political reputation they tie that to that deal and try to bring hope to this country but also there is hope that it will bring some sort of economic relief to this country because donald trump pulled the united states out of that 2015 nuclear deal and imposed some imposed sanctions against iran some of the harshest sanctions this country has ever seen and the economy has really been suffering. one major player on the global stage she has not yet commented china's data she's in pink katrina is in shanghai with more on what to expect with china u.s. ties when biden takes charge. we may not hear from them until we have an official election result from the u.s. in joe biden's favor but certainly there will be many people in beijing who are breathing some side of relief the past 4 years of the tremendous ration have been
really tough on the chinese government we've had initiation of the trade war and those tariffs that the us had there is very tough technology restrictions that have put a lot of pressure on the chinese economy and of course this year especially we've had attack after attack from a truck that ministration everything from carpet 19 to the treatment we use and shin giant hole holes national security law and all of this has really brought the u.s. china relationship to the lowest point that we've seen in decades so many of us seeing biden presidency as a chance to reset the relationship between the u.s. and china they're expecting war a return to a more conventional style of diplomacy a less confrontational less unpredictable approach and also the opportunity for china in the u.s. to potentially going forward to collaborate on issues such as the environment and climate change with beijing and biden do seem to see eye to eye that being said
that doesn't mean that beijing is likely to celebrate this indeed during my and it is likely to present more challenges to china. in the sense that he is expressing interest in strengthening ties with european allies for example they may build a bloc and use that bloc to pressure china to take some actions regards to the economy regards to trade so that could be a real big challenge for beijing going forward. bolivia's president elect we are say will be sworn in on sunday the former banco wonder landslide election last month but now the focus turns to whether he can jumpstart the struggling economy theories about what's the for the good and indigenous ritual to nag you wait bolivia's new president. this is the historic side of the one i'll call not far away from the capitol a pass the. chairman's from the a matinee indigenous group off for the traditional baton as a sign of good will to see and he's vice president that we joke
