“I would also thank African Americans who stood by me. I have your back as you had by back,” Joe Biden further added thanking minority communities for voting for him.
He also reached out to Trump supporters and said that it would be hard to reach out to them but they are also ajor part of the nation-building process.
“It’s time for our better angels to prevail,” Joe Biden said in a bid to unite a polarised nation, which had become the epicentre of global political drama over the past week as the world awaited the results of the US election.
Vice-president elect Kamala Harris thanked supporters and said, “‘You chose hope, decency, science and truth. You chose Joe Biden.”
Harris also thanked Joe Biden for selecting her as a running mate and also told women across America and said, “While I may be the first woman in this office, I might not be the last. America has sent out a message, that it is a country of possibilities.”
She said that every American has acted and has to struggle continuously to protect democracy in America. “You ushered in a new day for America,” she said. She said her supporters ensured that more people became part of the democratic process.
She further added, “America is ready, and so is Joe and I.”
