August 23, 2020 -- In the first Democratic National Convention held remotely due to the coronavirus, former Vice President Joe Biden accepted the nomination in a powerful speech in which he promised to unite and heal America.
He also pledged to provide leadership to address ”four historic crises” facing our nation: the worst pandemic in over 100 years: the worst economic crisis since the Great Depressing, the strongest calls for racial justice since the ‘60s, and the accelerating threat of climate change.
“If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw om the best of us not the worst. I will be an ally of the light, not the darkness. It’s time for us, we the people, to come together,” said Biden, speaking from Deleware, his home state.
