WILMINGTON, Delaware- For four years, America has been a nation at war with itself. But on Saturday night, President-Elect Joe Biden encouraged tens of Americans to set aside the “relentless battle between our better angels and our deepest impulses.”
“The severe phase of this demonetisation in America is over and now,” Biden told an enthusiastic crowd in Wilmington, Delaware, the presidential race was finally called. “It’s time for our better angels.”
In a victory speech emphasizing the message of national unity and the restoration of common decency, which animated his entire campaign, Biden vowed to become a president who would unite the nation behind a common goal — and his Do not consider opponents as enemies.
“It’s time to get off the rude rhetoric, the temperature is low, see each other again, hear each other again,” Leiden said. “But to progress, we need to stop treating our opponents as our enemies. They are not our enemies – they are American. “
One department, however, remains unwell. Biden’s remarks were inconsistent opponent President Donald Trump, who has so far refused to accept the race and who has vowed to fight any outcome that does not guarantee him a second term. Biden reached out to Trump’s supporters, though not by name, to be part of “the broadest and most diverse coalition in history.”
Earlier in the day, Biden privately shared his hopes for outreach with his campaign staff to supporters of the president, telling him in a video that he urged them to reach people with Trump’s signs in his yard.
“Reach them”, Biden said. “Tell them, ‘This is not personal, it’s about bringing together and restoring the core values we have received for generations and generations in America.”
“The rest of the country is watching us, the rest of the world is watching us,” Biden said. “So we’re going to make sure that both counties are united and the world is in this chaos, the message is America’s back.”
The diversity of that coalition, Biden said, was whether the first black woman of South Asian descent was elected to the vice-president – with whom she introduced him after sharing a double-fistbump and then saved her political future in the Democratic primary. The series of defeats left him on the verge of losing his third race to the White House.
“The African American community stood up for me,” Biden said, pounding his fist against the lecture with each syllable to hoarse cheers from the crowd of about 400 vehicles assembled at a socially distant victory party. “You always have my back, and I will be yours!”
Like most victory speeches, Biden’s address was light on policy – but he resolved to address the coronovirus epidemic, which has recognized his first order of business as president and president-elect as president.
“We cannot restore the economy, the most precious moments of our lives or lives – our grandchildren, children, birthdays, weddings, bachelors, what matters most to us – until we get it under control,” Hug. Embracing all the words, “Ballet said, create a transition team dedicated to planning the COVID-19 response for the first day of his presidency.” I will make any effort to trigger this epidemic. , Will not give up any, or any commitment. “
Supporters began to gather well as Biden’s presidential election excited to walk out onto the national stage for the first time. The blasts of cheerings that began later that afternoon appeared through the night as people awaited both leaders of the Democratic ticket to emerge victorious.
Attendees wore appropriate masks on the outside — though not social jackets — along with their jackets, sweatshirts, and campaign garlands, acknowledging the seriousness of COVID-19, the former vice-president’s campaign for three quarters. Factor of one year.
As Biden arrived shortly after 8 o’clock at night, it had almost become wazoo. Saturday night’s installation offered atmospheres similar to Election Day in Wilmington, before ballet-counting weeks placed millions of Americans in a state of prolonged anticipation.
Row after a row of red, white, and blue cars jammed the front of the familiar parking lot of the Chase Center, with stadium-like beams of rays and cameras flashed over the risers. The colors were enhanced by a particularly clear night. Just like on Tuesday, the talk-heads commentary shown through the projector screen was a huge hit, running through generations and genres to reach a wider audience.
As the stream of music flowed, one manfully balanced a pole affixed to an American flag on his shoulder, as if he were putting the weight of a mass country behind him.
While awaiting Biden, the audience experienced a casual rally and something adjacent to a rock concert. A long tribute to “Where Is the Love” by the Black Eyed Peas mashed up with Biden’s words and the crowd was rushed with sticks of blue light. More upbeat tunes followed in the rotation.
When Harris arrived with great pomp, Mary J. Walking on Bleuze’s “Work That”, he was loudly heard, beeps and screams after saying “you chose Joe Biden” as the next president. Later, later the respect and clap intensified after her message that black women are the “backbone” of democracy in the country.
Harris, whose rise has broken historical racial and gender barriers in American politics, acknowledges that her path to the vice president rests on the shoulders of the women she encountered — because other women will someday stand with her .
“I’m thinking of her,” Harris said of her late mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris, and about generations of women, black women, Asians, whites, Latina, Native American women, who made history in our country This moment has paved the way for – women who struggle and sacrifice a lot for equality and freedom and justice for all. “
Only the nation’s second Catholic president, Biden, ended his address to the nation by quoting “Eagles Wings,” a hymn that, he said, “captures the faith that makes me vain and who considers me to be America’s support . “
“And he will lift you up on the wings of the eagle, take you to the breath of dawn, and make you to shine like the sun and put you in the palm of his hand,” said Biden, before the sky with crackers and coordinated skies of the moment. The drones run across the dark sky with “46” and “President-Elect”. “And now together, on the wings of the Eagles, we embark on the work that God and history have asked us to do with all our heart and steady hands, with faith in America and each other.”
