Joe Biden emerged within a second as Social Media’s favorite as his speeches goes viral on Twitter and Facebook.
“I’ll be a Democratic candidate, but I will be an American president. I’ll work hard for those who didn’t support me, as hard for them as I did for those who didn’t vote for me. That’s the job of a president, to represent all of us, not just our base or our party. This is not a partisan moment. This must be an American moment.” He said.
Biden’s speech comprised of stability, humanity, trustworthiness, and most importantly compassion. He portrayed the qualities of a perfect antidote to President Donald Trump.
He never mentioned Trump in his speeches as former President Barack Obama and US Vice President candidate Kamala Harris did in their speeches at Democratic National Convention (DNC) 2020.
Some Instances of his speech
Biden said, “The president takes no responsibility, refuses to lead, blames others, cozies up to dictators and fans the flames of hate and division, He’ll wake up every day believing the job is all about him, never about you. Is that the America you want for you, your family, and your children?”
Trump responded to Biden’s speech by writing on Twitter saying,”in 47 years, Joe did none of the things of which he now speaks. He will never change, just words!”
Biden’s speech was much more focussed on unity, hope, and promise. He didn’t draw comparisons between him and Trump as it was expected.
Biden said the first thing I’ll do is work to get the deadly coronavirus pandemic under control.” Once he becomes US President.
“We’ll develop and deploy rapid tests with the results available immediately. We’ll make the medical supplies and protective equipment that our country needs. … We’ll make sure our schools have the resources they need to be open, safe, and effective. We’ll put politics aside,” he added
He added furthermore, “We’ll take the muzzle off our experts so the public gets the information they need and deserve, honest, unvarnished truth.”
“They can handle it. We’ll have a national mandate to wear a mask. Not as a burden but as a patriotic duty to protect one another. In short, we’ll do what we should have done from the very beginning.”
