Former Vice President Joe Biden will deliver remarks on Friday evening. His campaign has not yet revealed when and where he will speak. Furthermore, it is unclear what the focus of his speech will be.
Biden last delivered remarks on Thursday afternoon. In his short speech, he urged Americans to remain calm and allow the democratic process to take place.
"In America, the vote is sacred. It’s how people of this nation express their will, and it is the will of the voters, no one, not anything else, that chooses the President of the United States of America. So each ballot must be counted and that’s what we’re going to see going through now, and that’s how it should be," Biden said.
"Democracy is sometimes messy. It sometimes requires a little patience as well, but that patience has been rewarded now for more than 240 years with a system of governance, and that’s been the envy of the world, and we continue to feel, senator and I, we continue to feel very good about where things stand."
During his remarks, Biden noted that he and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, received briefings regarding COVID-19 pandemic. As the presidential election has unfolded, confirmed COVID-19 cases in America have continued to rise. Yesterday, the country recorded approximately 116,00 COVID-19 cases.
"Senator Harris and I just completed briefings on both COVID and the economic crisis facing this nation, and we’re reminded again of the severity of this pandemic. Cases are on the rise nationwide and we’re nearing 240,000 deaths due to COVID, and our hearts go out to each and every family has lost a loved one to this terrible disease," Biden added.
If elected, the former Vice President will have a massive job ahead of him. Given the state of the economy, surging pandemic and deteriorating faith in criminal justice reform, the next President will have one of the toughest four-year terms in U.S. history.
