Professional fighters have shared their respective reactions after Joe Biden was announced President-elect by most major news organizations.

The 77-year-old Democrat, Biden, took to Twitter earlier today where he shared the following statement.

“America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country. The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not. I will keep the faith that you have placed in me.” – Biden wrote.

Despite the outcome, Donald Trump is disputing the election results and already has lawyers involved after claiming foul play.

Just like America, professional fighters were divided when sharing their respective reactions to Biden’s presidency.
