It has become clear that Joe Biden, 76, is the new resident of the White House, he has become meters away from the seat of the forty-sixth U.S. President. Initial indicators in counting votes indicate Biden's lead in the states of Pennsylvania, Nevada, Arizona and Georgia. All the votes of these states will be added in to the electoral votes so that Biden could surpass the required magic number of 270 votes.

Biden said, with the enthusiasm of the victor, and the confidence of a veteran politician, “I call on Americans to be more patient and not to hurry the results,” “We are on the right track, as the numbers are still rising,”. He expressed his hope that he would be the first Democrat to win Arizona in decades, and on his way to surpass the 300-vote barrier in the electoral votes with 74 million voters, this is the largest tally of votes for any American president in history.

Although America’s elections have become like its movies, with their exciting surprises, we must deal with them in the same way we deal with football. We shouldn’t judge the results until the referee blows whistle. It seems that Trump is dealing with the results with the same arrogance that he dealt with during his first term, his campaign team is trying to obstruct reaching the final line by resorting to courts and raising doubts about postal votes. What surprises will these elections bring? Could Trump exploit the Republicans' control over the Constitutional Court ... after Trump appointed Amy Barrett as a judge in the Supreme Court ... while the number of conservative judges reached 6 compared to 3 democratic ones? With raising doubts on these elections results, the Supreme Court can request a recount of all votes or request that postcards be sent again, creating new dimensions in the election movie to block Biden's entry to the White House.

The film is long and open to all possibilities, while the world must hold its breath waiting for the end that looks like open-ended Hollywood movies that help us to find logical solutions. But will the Republican Party accept the obstruction? No, because Republicans in Pennsylvania voted for Biden, and this is enough to make him the new president!

The most important question is whether there will be a major development in US policy or is it a state of institutions and a stable strategy, and if there is a change, what is our share of this change? Will we find rebels in his administration, like those during the era of his predecessor, Obama?

In my opinion, the results of the current elections will change the United States, due to the rapid change that occurred during the era of President Trump in the field of domestic and foreign policies. The first urgently required confrontation is to stop the bleeding of deaths and infections with the Coronavirus. Biden and his team have already begun discussing a plan to combat the emerging coronavirus, and the election result will give him a mandate to confront the shortcomings and recklessness of President Trump in confronting this virus, so that the United States of America occupied the highest percentage of deaths, exceeding 9 million cases and 240 thousand deaths.

Whatever the priorities, it is sure that Biden is a veteran politician who has experienced international politics for more than half a century and has overcome many crises. The important thing is that Egypt has a steadfast position and welcomes dealing with any U.S. elected president, as “Egypt-Sisi” derives its strength from the unity of its people, the vision and wisdom of its president, Egypt has become an influential figure in its regional environment .. while any American president is only concerned with the interest of his country.
