US presidential election 2020: Joe Biden reiterate the elimination of the "dark season" in his address to the Democratic National Convention.
Accepting the Democratic nomination for the November 3, 2020, US presidential election, Joe Biden said incumbent President Donald Trump "kept the United States in the dark for a long time."
The former US vice president said his opponent had caused "too much anger, too much fear and too much division" in the country. Biden's speech is the get of his political career. Which spans almost half a century. He has a clear lead over 74-year-old President Trump in opinion polls ahead of the general election campaign. However, with 75 days left in the election, the Republican president has plenty of time to close the gap.
In his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, President Biden, 77, addressed an event where not many people were present. "I can assure you that if you give me the presidency, I will try to be the best president, not the worst," he said. “I will be an ally of light, not of darkness”. "This is the time for all of us, all the people, to come together and think that by uniting we can and will end this dark season in the United States." "We will prioritize hope over fear, reality over fiction, and justice over favouritism." Biden said that this November, "his decision will be up to your votes".
"We can choose a path in which we are angry, less optimistic and more divided, a path that is full of doubts and shadows," he said. Or we can choose a different path, and use this opportunity together to heal our wounds, bring reforms, and unite, and path of hope and light.
"It's a life-changing election. It will determine what the United States will look like in the long run. " "What we do know about the current president is that if he is given another four years, he will remain the same as he was during the last four years," he added. "A president who takes no responsibility, refuses to lead, blames others, and supports dictators and gives air to the flames of hatred and separatism." "He (Trump) gets up every day and thinks this job is just for him, not for you," he said. "Do you want this America, for your children and for your family?"
