WASHINGTON (Somaliguardian) – US president-elect Joe Biden said it was “time to heal” deeply divided America during his first speech to the nation after winning in a bitter race, with Trump still refusing to concede, pressing ahead with legal fights against the outcome.
Biden’s victory on Saturday in Pennsylvania put him over the threshold of 270 Electoral College he needed to secure presidency, ending Donald Trump’s tenure in office and sending his supports into the streets of major cities in celebration.
“The people of this nation have spoken. They have delivered us a clear victory, a convincing victory,” Biden told honking and cheering supporters in a parking lot in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware.
Mr Biden, 77, pledged that as president he will seek to unify the country and “marshal the forces of decency” to battle the COVID-19 pandemic and secure health care for American families. He also promised to root out systemic racism.
The new US president spoke directly to the 70 million American citizens who cast ballots in support of Donald Trump, some of whom took to the streets on Saturday to demonstrate against the results.
