America’s Victory Speech

          On a Saturday morning, Americans witnessed history. A memory that will never be forgotten, a victory worth celebrating. President-Elect Joe Biden won the Presidential Election against Donald Trump. This election season has lasted longer than any other season and has made history. Biden then delivered a victory speech to the American people, it isn’t just his victory, it’s ours. Biden has pledged to help heal and unify the American people that have suffered for so long due to the racial and cultural divide. According to Biden’s speech, he is to take on the historic corona virus pandemic that has stolen the lives of millions of Americans, heal deep political division, and restore the American people as a whole. Without an agenda like this, the American people would lose hope, but Biden has shown us that there is still some left.
           Despite Biden’s many losses in life—his wife and son, Biden stated that “I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide but unify,”. Compared to Trump, Biden doesn’t just see the democratic people, he sees the Republican people as well. To support this, Biden stated, “Who doesn’t see red states and blue states, only sees the United States…”. Biden’s plan for the American people to unite and see each other as one despite political parties and race. According to Biden’s speech, he “sought this office to restore the soul of America, to rebuild the backbone of this nation, the middle class,”. Not only is Biden planning on uniting the country, but he is also rebuilding it after Trump’s terrible failure of sustaining the country during his “reign”. Many Americans during Trump’s time in the office often referred to themselves as “leftists” or rights”. This great divide has shown the American people that we need a president that will not divide us but sustain and unite us. Trump has failed to do that and is now refusing to concede. Not only will Biden complete his mission, but he will also rebuild the American people and restore this country as a whole.
