Democrat Joe Biden has finally won the heated race of Presidential election. His running mate Kamala Harris is sharing the success.
Kamala Harris will be the first female, first black, and first Asian-American vice President of the United States.
Joe Biden gave his first speech as the President-elect. He was introduced by Kamala Harris.
Kamala said, “When our very democracy was on the ballot in this election, the very soul of America at stake and with the whole world watching, you ushered in a new day for America,”
“You chose hope and unity, decency, science and yes, truth – you chose Joe Biden as the next president of the United States. And the road ahead will not be easy but America is ready, and so are Joe and I.”
She also noted the historic moment that the election result marked, “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last.”
Addressing cheering supporters in a parking lot in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, Mr. Biden said, “I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide, but to unify; who doesn’t see red states and blue states, only sees the United States.”
He hailed the “diverse” support he gathered during the campaign. “It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again,” Mr. Biden said. “And to make progress, we have to stop treating our opponents as enemies.”
