With 306 electoral delegates and nearly 80 million votes, former Vice President Joe Biden won the election and will become the next president of the United States on January 20. But nearly 74 million people voted for President Trump, and many of them believe the election was stolen from him. This has exacerbated already sharp divisions in this country.

These divisions are often found in families, families that will come together for Thanksgiving this week – though perhaps in smaller groups than usual due to COVID-19.
