The Republican stated in the video, “I think the three of us are talking about a peaceful transfer of power to talk about the institutional integrity of our country.” “America’s a liberal country, people of great hearts. The three of us were fortunate to become the president of this country.”
Bush said he was pulling for Biden’s success, adding, “Your success is the success of our country. God bless you.”
The message was delivered by Obama, a Democrat, who said to sustain the country “not only listen to those with whom we agree, but listen to those we do not.”
“One of my fondest memories of the inauguration was the grace and generosity that President Bush showed me, and Laura Bush showed it to Michelle,” he said.
It was a reminder, Obama said, “that we can have a fierce disagreement and still recognize each other’s common humanity and that as Americans, we have more than the common that sets us apart.”
Clinton, meanwhile, said the US was “ready to march” with Biden and called it an “exciting time” for the US, despite immediate challenges.
The Democrat Democrat said, “I’m glad you’re there and I wish you all the best.” “You have spoken for us today. Now you will lead for us.”
Biden said earlier on Wednesday that Trump left him a “very lenient letter”, but would not immediately reveal the contents of the letter.
The remarks come after Trump’s presidential election spent months rigging him and spreading baseless conspiracy theories about voter fraud. He was impeached after a violent mob in the US Capitol accused him of inciting a rebellion for his actions before the House erupted, killing five people, including a Capitol police officer. There will be a trial in the US Senate which is expected to begin soon.
