President-elect Joe Biden points a finger at a rally in Wilmington, Delaware, November 7, 2020. Biden declared it was "time to heal" a deeply divided America in his first speech after winning a bitter election, even as Trump refused to concede and pressed ahead with legal fights against the outcome. "For all those of you who voted for President Trump, I understand the disappointment tonight. I've lost a couple times myself. But now, let's give each other a chance. It's time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again," he said. REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque

Pan-democratic legislator Lam Cheuk-ting hangs a banner that reads "Carrie Lam harms Hong Kong and its people, stinks for ten thousand years" at the legislature in Hong Kong, China November 12, 2020. Hong Kong's opposition staged a final show of defiance before resigning to protest against the dismissal of four of their colleagues in what they see as another bid by Beijing to suppress democracy in the city. The withdrawal of the opposition from the city legislature will mean an end for what has been one of the few forums for dissent after Beijing's imposition of national security legislation in June and coronavirus restrictions ended pro-democracy protests that began last year.
