Books by and about Kamala Harris surge in popularity after win

"What happens if Biden moves on and the Indian becomes President".

Kamala Harris has made history by becoming the first woman to be elected vice-president of the US.

In a speech given overnight United Kingdom time, Biden said: "The people of this nation have spoken".

"I am relieved, because I knew she's going to win, and I told her yesterday ... my tension is now gone away", he told WION TV in New Delhi. "Most people understood. Racist NO".

Among them was Tanzanian opposition leader Zitto Kabwe, who was arrested and charged with terrorism-related offenses after his country's bruising presidential election. Identifying a person by their race is offensive.

With the choice of her white suit, which the American-Venezuelan designer Caroline Herrera had designed (also a small political statement), she reminded of all the women who made it possible for her to hold this office.

"The comment is entirely unacceptable and has no place in British politics".

Smith added: "I am so angry about this comment..."

Coronavirus was a major feature of his speech, while Mr Biden vowed to improve the country's global reputation, as well as to build prosperity, protect people's access to healthcare, root out systemic racism, save the climate and defend democracy.

She said: "You have protected the integrity of our democracy". Maduro said Venezuela, which is under crippling U.S. sanctions aimed at forcing him out of office, was "ready for dialogue and understanding" with the United States.

Mr Hoare described the message as: "Bad".

"We will celebrate with firecrackers, distributing Indian candies to people and praying in the temple", Vamdayar said. "I thought about the Black women of Delta Sigma Theta who marched for suffrage in 1913".

And as she took the stage with Joe Biden for her acceptance speech, Kamala Harris' young nieces also became hot social media property, with people sharing cute videos of her with them - as well as pictures of them in their fantastic matching white outfits.

Lord Kilclooney is no stranger to controversy, especially when it comes to social media.

The life peer was accused of racism in 2018 when he referred to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, then the head of the government in Ireland, as a "typical Indian". "I will be making an official complaint to both the Commissioner for Standards and the Lords Speaker".

Despite his defence of his remarks, criticism of Lord Kilclooney has continued to grow both in the United Kingdom and further afield.

Deputy President William Ruto has congratulated America's President-Elect Joe Biden who trounced Donald Trump in the battle for the country's top job.

UUP leader Steve Aiken stressed the peer had not been a member of the party "for at least a decade" as he criticised the "reprehensible" remarks.

"The time has also come to give our women the chance to occupy such a high office in our country and even the number one position", said a Nigerian Cabinet minister, Festus Keyamo, on Twitter.

SDLP MLA Sinead McLaughlin said his tweet was "utterly abhorrent". "Action must be taken".
