Currently, the president of the United States is (thankfully) Democrat Joe Biden. President Biden replaces a twice impeached Donald Trump in a fierce election in which both candidates received more votes than any previous candidate in history.
His victory, coupled with a stunning sweep of the Georgia Senate races by Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock give Democrats control over both houses of Congress and the Executive Branch. The last time that happened, President Obama passed the Affordable Care Act. The time before, President Clinton passed a tax overhaul that resulted in 8 years of deficit reduction and 4 years of budget surpluses. Both times, the Democrats lost full control of Congress in the next midterm election.
DEMOCRATIC VICE PRESIDENT
Vice President Kamala Harris was serving her first term in the U.S. Senate when she was elected to her current position.
A lifelong public safety and civil rights leader, Kamala D. Harris was the first Black and first woman to serve as Attorney General of California and the second Black woman to be elected to the United States Senate in history. She is now the first woman, the first Black, and the first Asian American to serve as Vice President of the United States.
