Joe Biden presents US election as a fight for the nation’s soul

Afrinity Production gladly brings to you former US Vice President Joe Biden acceptance speech of the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination during a speech he delivered for the largely virtual 2020 Democratic National Convention from the Chase Center in Wilmington.
Afrinity Production can clearly disclose to you that Joe Biden has formally accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, describing in a televised speech to a virtual convention his vision for a new United States that is facing multiple crises at once.
“It is an America we can rebuild together,” Biden said, pledging to make control of the coronavirus outbreak his first act if elected president.
“We will never get our economy back on track. We will never get our kids safely back in schools. Never have our lives back until we deal with this virus,” Biden said.
“Joe Biden gave the speech of his lifetime, and he accomplished what he needed to, presenting an optimistic, forward-thinking voice for voters,” said Nichola Gutgold, a professor of communication arts and sciences at Penn State University.
“He came across as ‘the president next-door’ offering a glimpse of his life as a young boy growing up in a small town, combining a folksy decency with policy points,” Gutgold told Al Jazeera.
“It was unlike any other convention speech in American history.”
Democrats used the four-day convention programme to frame the November election as a referendum on Donald Trump’s presidency and laid out a series of centre-left policies on key issues confronting the nation.
