Presidential Election Is Still Going On
The election between President Trump and former Vice President Biden is coming down to a count of thousands of ballots in key battleground states.
Our TV station broadcast a live talk show on election night and many scholars and community leaders were invited to discuss the future of our nation.
Biden holds a narrow margin of 224-213 in the electoral voting totals. Under the Electoral College process, a candidate must reach the 270 mark to win the presidency.
President Trump said from the White House, “As far as I‘m concerned, we already have won it.”
Biden warned that each side needed to wait for all the votes to be counted. He said that, “ We are going to have to be patient until the hard work of tallying the votes is finished.”
No matter what the outcome will be for our community, we still have four important issues facing all of us. These include the pandemic, the economy, education and immigration.
The 2020 election really represents a milestone for our community. Never before have so many people gone out to vote, and many Asians actually ran for public office.
This is an historical time for all of us. How to solve the country’s problems depends on all of us.
We all hope the new leadership will give us new hope for the future.
