Biden vows to unify country in victory speech
“Let’s give each other a chance,” Biden said at an event in Delaware addressing those who did not vote for him.
Joe Biden defeated incumbent President Mr. Donald Trump following a cliff hanger vote count after Tuesday’s election.
Donald Trump has yet to concede and has not spoken publicly since his defeat was announced while he was playing golf.
Addressing cheering supporters in a parking lot in his hometown of Wilmington, Joe 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.”
United States(US) president elect Biden was introduced by his running mate, Mrs. Kamala Harris, who is about to become the first ever female vice president in the country’s history.
She will also be the first black and first Asian American vice president when she takes office, following a year that has seen nationwide protests on the issue of racial injustice.
Kamala Harris paid tribute to her late mother, an Indian immigrant to the United States, and the other generations of black, Asian, white, Latina, and native women who “paved the way for this moment tonight”.
“While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last,” she added.
