Joe Biden calls for unity in first address as President-elect | USA TODAY 1


In first address since securing the presidency, Joe Biden called for unity between all Americans.

President-elect Joe Biden delivered a celebratory message but also a message of healing for the nation in his first remarks Saturday following a bitter and divisive battle for the presidency.

“America has always been shaped by inflections points, by moments in time we’ve made hard decisions about who we are what we want to be,” Biden said at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware, where the horns from hundreds of cars and cheers could be heard between his words. “Folks, we stand at an inflection point.”

  1. Now they want unity? These people are impossible to live with.

    The media, the fake news are rushing to declare the election because they are corrupt! Biden is in a rush because he knows his corruption, and the swamp is being exposed

  3. And just like that, covid is gone.

    • nope you re wrong covid will not soon be gone with Biden and Harris it will be a lot worse and many more people will die you ll see

    • covid denier has become the new flat earth believer

    • @Robert Moir Biden is not a vaccine or healer for Covid, it will continue just as it did under Trump… When there is a vaccine, only then it will slow. This could have happened under either president…

  4. If you think Biden won the presidency, you’re a simpleton.

      He did win, and you are delusional.

    • ​@Special Person But Trump did say this election was a fraud, so a part of his supporter just repeat it. They don’t need any proof to believe him. If Trump have any solid proof of what he’s saying, the court will reveal the truth, but if he has nothing, it will just be one more conspiracy theory on to which those people will cling.

      I’m looking your elections from Europe, and everybody knew that would happen. I mean, we knew that it was mostly the democrates who would vote with mail (and all the experts said it was very secure, despite Trump point of view on this). We saw Trump trying to destroy your postal services before the elections. We knew that there would be this “red mirage” effect during the counting. And we witnessed Trump trying to denying you the right to vote when he saw the democrates votes coming in.
      I never liked him, nor the way he manipulates people and lie constantly. But this… that’s really a new low. Some people, here, are affraid that he tries a coup d’etat or deliberately provoque a civil war. Because it seems that his madness knows no limits.

  5. Fraud



  8. I don’t see red or blue either, I see honest and dishonest. I don’t unify with dishonest people so as of right now, no deal.

  9. On Jan. 6, Congress convenes to count the electoral votes and certify the winner of the election.
    This is FAR from over! 🤣

  10. So since he thinks he won now he wants “unity.” What happened to calling half the country ugly folks who are ignorant racist xenophobes? A lot changes in a week it seems

    • @Black Mouth it’s not that he hurt my feelings, cause I honestly don’t care much about him or what he says, it’s more or less how he represents the US, many people have look down at this nation after trump took over, yeah he did some good, but to say he didn’t did some bad would be to lie and he have shown no human decency, which is something a lil sad to see to eat fully honest

    • @Kylo Ren many looked down on the US prior to Trump. Many prior to Trump did some good and some bad. Wouldn’t not acknowledging Obama’s, Bush’s, Clinton’s, and the many before’s bad also not be “showing human decency?” Why only single out Trump? What’s your point cuz it still seems you just don’t like the guy? Which is fine it’s your opinion, just seems disingenuous

    • @Kylo Ren seems reasonable. Our original point was simply that Biden, Democrats, and especially the progressives, haven’t had unifying messages or policies. Preaching unity now rings hollow

    • @Black Mouth that’s exactly it. He has a strong personality and it makes weak minded people scared. He is the man to lead this country. Not puppet joe.

  11. We need division, to separate the bullshxt from the truth.

    Biden can call for unity all he wants.
    He won’t get it.

  13. He wil be most hated president if they will cheat his way to presidency

  14. After he called half the country naz1s for the last few years? Nah. No unity

  15. Creepy joe the demented predator

  16. You don’t get to call for unity after everything you have done!

    Everywhere I go I see more and more people waking up to the obvious fraud in this election. Patriots will stand and fight for the people of this country, China Joe will not steal this election.

  18. I’ve seen BLM celebrating already. See America, Domestic Terrorists are celebrating for joe 🇺🇲❤️. Burn loot murder & Fraud to get your way.

    • Thats exactly what it will be…

    • You have Trump Derangement Syndrome | November 8, 2020 at 4:59 PM | Reply

      remember Bush’s dead soldiers number in lower corner on CNN? The day Pharo Obama took office the box came down! I’ve never seen this kinda crap! It’s a media Coup. President elect Gore? Media called him that for a month. Before Bush was appointed by the Supreme Court. Two new Supreme court justices were also young justices pages during Gore v Bush decision!!!! They were directly involved in the decision then and now! Left needs to look deeper into the foresight of President Trump!

    • I see little children there are they Domestic Terrorists as well REALLY

    • @Anne Mitchell anyone who represents blm is a domestic Terrorist. I’ve watched them burn these cities and do nothing positive but terrorize people for the past 6 months.

    • @Anne Mitchell Children sadly learn the wrong things from a young age instead of enjoying a childhood.

  19. How interesting that when they win they are now calling on unity and giving the president a chance. Yet they did everything they could against President Trump from fake investigations and a sham impeachment and the media attacked him constantly and never told about the positives he was actually going.

    Yeeaaah. Tell that to AOC and her list. She is really looking for some “unity”. You guys are a joke.

    • Or Robert Reich, the Nazi in waiting with his Dept of Truth that will review Trump and his supporters. These are totalitarians on the Left. You cannot unify with totalitarians.
