Joe Biden reaches out to disappointed Trump supporters in his first speech as president-elect with his family on stage

 

 

 

 

Joe Biden proclaimed his victory over Donald Trump as he addressed the nation for the first time since the election was called in his favor on Saturday night saying: ‘The people have delivered us a clear victory.’

The 77-year-old president-elect took to the stage in Wilmington, Delaware after being introduced by Kamala Harris, his vice-president elect, to cheers from a crowd who had driven in to hear him.

Biden called on Americans to come together after the election, making an appeal to Trump voters and offering a message of hope and sympathy to those who have suffered from the coronavirus pandemic and its resulting affect on the economy.

Two hours after Biden spoke, there began to be signs of movement in the White House, as CNN reported that Jared Kushner had told his father-in-law it was time to concede, ending speculation about who would have to tell the president that it was time to end tweet after tweet of denial and defiance and let the peaceful transition of power begin.

White House sources earlier told the Washington Post Trump’s team had begun playing the blame game for the president’s failed re-election bid, with Kushner being in the line of fire.

In his 15-minute speech Saturday, Biden thanked his supporters, particularly African American voters who gave him the Democratic nomination and turned out in the general election, along with his campaign staff.

After his remarks, the entire Biden family – including his son Hunter with his new baby and the Biden grandchildren – came out on stage to join Joe and Jill. Confetti cannons fired and fireworks went off as ‘Bring Me a Higher Love’ played.

‘We’re seeing all over the nation, cities across the country, indeed across the world outpouring of joy and hope and renewed faith,’ Biden said in his address. 

‘Tomorrow will bring a better day. And I’m humbled by the trust and confidence you’ve placed in me. I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide but unify. Who doesn’t see red states and blue states. Only sees the United States.’
