Will Restore The Soul Of America President, Elect Joe Biden In His Victory Speech Democrat Joe Biden is not the President-elect and Kamala Harris is set to create history by becoming the first-ever woman Vice President of colour in the nation’s 244-year existence. In a victory speech on Saturday night, Biden called it “a time to heal in America” and said, “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.”

Harris praised Biden as “a healer, an uniter, a tested and steady hand" and spoke of what her win represented, saying, “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last, because every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities.”

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris gave their victory speeches amid a sea of honking car horns and cheering supporters waving American flags in an outdoor event in Wilmington, Delaware.

The scene was different than massive rally-like victory celebrations of past presidents, such as President Barack Obama’s massive Chicago speech in 2008.

President-Elect Joe Biden made a direct appeal to supporters of President Donald Trump and called the moment a “time to heal” in America.

“For all those of you who voted for President Trump, I understand the disappointment,” Biden said. “I've lost a couple of times myself. But now let's give each other a chance. It's time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again."

Reciting one of his slogans from the campaign trail, Biden said he ran for president for all Americans, not just Democrats.

USA will get a new first lady, Dr. Jill Biden, and in his acceptance speech, President-elect Joe Biden was quick to identify himself not as the 46th president but as the husband to Jill Biden.

"I'm Jill's husband," he declared. “Teaching isn’t just what she does, it’s who she is.”

President-elect Joe Biden specifically thanked Black voters for his victory.


“The African American community stood up for me. They always have my back, and I’ll have yours,” he said as he pounded the podium.


Black voters helped power Biden’s comeback during the Democratic presidential primary, helping him win South Carolina in his first primary victory of the campaign. They also broke decisively for Biden on Election Day.

Vice president-elect Kamala Harris told supporters the “hard work” was yet to come after the election, pointing to the agenda she and President-elect Joe Biden hoped to accomplish.


She highlighted the “essential work” to beat the COVID-19 pandemic, working to “root out systemic racism,” to “combat the climate crisis,” “to unite our country,” and “restore the soul of our nation.”


“The road will not be easy,” she said. “But America is ready. And so are Joe and I.”


Democrats are unlikely to win control of the Senate, which could make it difficult for a Biden administration to pass ambitious legislation
