Biden said, Time to end chapter of darkness. US economy and jobs rattled and need restructuring.
Election in Covid time has assumed greater significance as it is both time of peril and opportunity.
Joe Biden has officially accepted the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party, urging the American voters to come together to overcome a “season of darkness” that has cloaked the US for “much too long”. Biden, 77, was introduced by a video that went through the former vice president’s life, and career, and highlighted his role as a father, husband and political leader. Biden’s children, Ashley Biden and Hunter Biden, spoke before 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 said together. “He’s been a great father, and we think he will be a great president,” they said. While accepting the Democratic presidential nomination, Biden said 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 said in an opening that targeted President US Donald Trump.
