Trump Failed To Protect America, Says Joe Biden At DNC
Former US Vice President Joe Biden accepted the presidential nomination during the fourth night of the Democratic National Convention 2020.
Joe Biden promised to restore the “soul of America” and deliver the nation from “darkness” as he accepted the Democratic nomination for president on Thursday night (August 20), a crowning achievement in Biden’s five decades in politics where he was counted out more than once. Speaking from Wilmington, Delaware, Biden said President Donald Trump has failed in his basic duties to protect Americans as he pledged to get a handle on the coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 1,70,000 Americans and put the country on an economic downward spiral.
“Our current president has failed in his most basic duty to the nation. He’s failed to protect us. He’s failed to protect America and my fellow Americans, that is unforgivable,” Biden said. “As president, I’ll make you a promise: I’ll protect Americans. I will defend us from every attack-seen and unseen-always, without exception, every time.” Biden, the three-time presidential candidate who was written off in early 2020 after losing both Iowa and New Hampshire, said he’s the candidate who can lead the nation through the dark times. He cited four major crises: COVID-19, the economic downturn, climate change and the demands for racial justice from communities who “know the justice of a knee on the neck.”
