President-Elect Joe Biden full victory speech November 7, 2020
In his first speech after securing the White House, President-elect Joe Biden is making an appeal to supporters of President Donald Trump.
Biden said Saturday night in Delaware, that “this is the time to heal in America” and pledged to be a president to represent even those who didn’t support him. Noting, "I’ve lost a couple times myself," Biden said, "now, let’s give each other a chance."
Trump has not conceded the race to Biden, pursuing legal challenges over ballot counts in several states.
Biden said “it’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again,” saying of his political opponents, “they are not our enemies. They are Americans.”
Biden is pledging to be a president “who seeks not to divide but to unify.” He delivered his first remarks as president-elect at a victory party in Wilmington, after he was officially declared the winner of the presidential election on Saturday.
