Washington, August 21
Joe Biden has formally accepted the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party, urging the American voters to return collectively to beat a “season of darkness” that has cloaked the US for “much too long”.
Biden, 77, was launched by a video that went by way of the previous vp’s life, and profession, and highlighted his function as a father, husband and political chief.
Biden’s youngsters, Ashley Biden and Hunter Biden spoke earlier than their father accepted the nomination.
“We want to tell you what kind of president our dad will be. He will be tough. And honest. Caring and principled. He’ll listen, he’ll be there when you need him. He’ll tell you the truth even when you don’t want to hear it. He’ll never let you down,” they stated collectively.
“He’s been a great father, and we think he will be a great president,” they stated.
While accepting the Democratic presidential nomination on Thursday night time, Biden stated in Delaware that “united we can and will overcome this season of darkness in America.”
“The current president’s cloaked American darkness for much too long,” Biden stated in a gap that focused President US Donald Trump.
“Too much anger, too much fear, too much division. Here and now, I give you my word: If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us, not the worst. I’ll be an ally of the light, not the darkness. It’s time for us — for we the people — to come together,” he stated. PTI
