“We Must Put The Anger Behind Us,” Says Joe Biden As He Inches Closer To Victory

Mr Biden said he, and his running mate Kamala Harris, have already been meeting experts on how to control the “skyrocketing” cases of Covid-19. 

On Friday, the Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden urged Americans to put behind “anger and demonization” to come together as a nation to heal.

As the latest trends from Pennsylvania and three other states made the possibility of Trump’s second term unlikely, Biden repeated that he believed he would win but said he would wait for the process to complete.

The Democratic nominee instead delivered a late-night address with the tone of a president-elect. Mr Biden vowed to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic as new cases Friday hit a new high of more than 127,000 cases.

“We must put the anger — and the demonization — behind us. It’s time for us to come together as a nation and heal,” Mr Biden spoke in his home turf of Wilmington, Delaware accompanied by his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris.

“My responsibility as president will be to represent the whole nation,” he further added

Mr Biden said he, and his running mate Kamala Harris, have already been meeting experts on how to control the “skyrocketing” cases of Covid-19, which has claimed more than 230,000 lives in the United States, more than in any other country.

“I want everyone to know that on Day One, we are going to put our plan to control this virus into action, ” he stressed.

“That can’t save any of the lives that have been lost, but it will save a lot of lives in the months ahead,” Mr Biden assured.

According to recent trends called by The Associated Press, Joe Biden has been leading in Georgia, Nevada and Pennsylvania with almost 99% of votes reported. According to US media, it is unlikely that the states would flip, indicating a likely defeat to be called for President Donald Trump in the next few hours.
