Joe Biden, Kamala Harris named Time ‘2020 Person of the Year’

US President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris have been named as Time magazine’s 2020 ‘Person of the Year’ on Thursday.

The Democratic pair were chosen ahead of three other finalists: frontline health care workers and Anthony Fauci, the racial justice movement and President Trump.

Time’s magazine has put pictures of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as its cover photo, with the title ‘Changing America’s story’. 

“Together, they offered restoration and renewal in a single ticket. And America bought what they were selling: after the highest turnout in a century, they racked up 81 million votes and counting, the most in presidential history, topping Trump by some 7 million votes and flipping five battleground states,” the publication said.

US President-elect Joe Biden beat incumbent Donald Trump by 306 electoral college votes to Trump’s 232 to end the real estate tycoon-turned-politician’s presidency after one term.
