Biden Calls for Unity in Evening Speech
On Monday, in an evening speech held shortly after the Electoral College confirmed him as President-Elect, Joe Biden called for unity and moving forward.
Said Biden, "The flame of democracy was lit in this nation a long time ago. And we now know that nothing - not even a pandemic or an abuse of power - can extinguish that flame."
Biden criticized the Texas GOP's Supreme Court lawsuit which sought to disenfranchise millions of voters and called for unity. The Supreme Court refused to hear the case. Said Biden, "The integrity of our elections remains intact. Now it is time to turn the page as we've done throughout our history. To unite, to heal."
Biden thanked the 81 million people who voted for him and renewed his campaign promise to be a president for all Americans, whether they voted for him or not.
President Trump remained in the Oval Office as the Electoral College completed its tally and continues to discredit the election results and make claims of voter fraud.
In an interview with "Fox & Friends", White House Adviser Stephen Miller expressed no concern for the Electoral College votes and said, "The only date in the Constitution is Jan. 20. So we have more than enough time to right the wrong of this fraudulent election result and certify Donald Trump as the winner of the election."
