New US President – level 1

13-11-2020 07:00

People in the US vote for a new president. Joe Biden is the winner. Joe Biden is 77 years old. He becomes the 46th US president.

At first, it seems that Donald Trump is going to win again. But everything changes soon. Biden gets ahead of Trump. It is important to count all votes.

Biden wins in many US states. He wins in Pennsylvania. It is clear that Trump cannot win. Biden´s supporters are happy. They celebrate in the streets. But Trump´s supporters are angry. They do not believe what happens.

Donald Trump is not happy with the result. He does not accept that Biden wins. Trump´s lawyers want to change the situation. Trump believes that he can be the US president again.

Difficult words: vote (when a person chooses who he wants to win), supporter (somebody who likes a political person or a sports team), result (how something ends), accept (to say you are fine with something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
