Acceptance Speech of President-Elect Joseph Biden

November 7, 2020 "My fellow Americans, the people of this nation have spoken. They have delivered us a clear victory. A convincing victory. A victory for 'We the People.' We have won with the most votes ever cast for a presidential ticket in the history of this nation - 74 million. I am humbled by the trust and confidence you have placed in me. I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide, but to unify. Who doesn't see red and blue states, but a United States. And who will work with all my heart to win the [...]

Arizonans are hurting. Here’s My Plan To Help Them As President

Right now, far too many of Arizonans’ lives have been turned upside down. More than 220,000 have been infected with COVID-19. Nearly 6,000 have died, missing from our lives forever. There are at least 234,000 fewer jobs in Arizona as a result of this pandemic, and nearly one in five small businesses have shuttered. Cruelest of all, it didn’t have to be this way. I met Silvana Salcido Esparza, an award-winning chef, last week in Phoenix. She told me that her restaurant, Barrio Café, is hanging on by a thread. To keep her 10 employees on payroll, she had to cancel her own health [...]

Why I Picked Kamala Harris as My Running Mate

You make a lot of important decisions as president. But the first one is who you select to be your Vice President. I’ve decided that Kamala Harris is the best person to help me take this fight to Donald Trump and Mike Pence and then to lead this nation starting in January 2021. I’d like to tell you why, but first I’m going to ask you to add your name and welcome Kamala to our team. These aren’t normal times. For the first time in our history, we’re facing three historic crises -- all at the same time. We’re facing [...]

Trump’s Executive Orders Are a War on Social Security

Unable to deliver for the American people in a time of crisis, Donald Trump offered a series of half-baked measures today. He is putting Social Security at grave risk at a time when seniors are suffering the overwhelming impact of a pandemic he has failed to get under control. And make no mistake: Donald Trump said today that if he is re-elected, he will defund Social Security. For months, Trump has golfed rather than negotiated, and sown division rather than pull people together to get a package passed. Now, instead of staying in Washington and working with Republicans and Democrats to [...]

On This Day 55 Years Ago, the Voting Rights Act Was Signed Into Law

In our lifetime Americans have been beaten, bloodied, and murdered because they wanted to vote. For Black Americans, their fundamental right was denied by white supremacy hiding behind white hoods and in plain sight in legislatures, police stations, and courtrooms. But those torches and burning crosses, the batons, fire hoses, attack dogs, and unfair laws and trials could deny that right for only so long. On March 7, 1965, John Lewis and hundreds of brave and righteous souls risked their lives to cross a bridge in Selma named after a Klansman to reach the other side of justice. The blood [...]

I Know Joe Biden: Rabbi Michael Beals. He’s a Mensch.

We’re sharing stories directly from the people who truly know Joe and his character — from his family members to his colleagues to veterans he greeted at the White House. Meet Joe Biden through the eyes of those who know him best. Then, help build the campaign that’s going to send him to White House. The story I’m about to share with you about Joe Biden is special — in fact, I’m fairly certain I’m the only living person left who actually witnessed it firsthand. It was about 16 years ago, and I was a young rabbi, brand-new to Delaware, [...]

The Biden Agenda for Women

Joe Biden is going to build our country back better after this economic crisis and that includes ensuring we get closer to full inclusion of and equality for women. Women — particularly women of color — have never had a fair shot to get ahead in this country. Today, too many women are struggling to make ends meet and support their families, and are worried about the economic future for their children. This was true before the COVID-19 crisis, but the current global health crisis has exacerbated these realities for women. For Biden, it’s a simple proposition: his daughter is [...]

Biden’s Statement on Trump’s Continued Failure to Control COVID-19

Originally published on Medium.com Yet again this morning, President Trump attacked the CDC and the public health experts who should be guiding our response to COVID-19, saying that they “don’t know” what they’re talking about. The past six months have proven again and again that it’s Donald Trump who doesn’t know what he’s talking about when it comes to COVID-19. He said the virus would disappear. He said anyone who wants a test could get a test. He said the virus was under control. When it comes to the coronavirus, you can’t believe a word he says. It’s astonishing that [...]

Trump erodes America’s foundation. This Fourth of July, I pledge to rebuild it.

The Fourth of July commemorates a courageous, extraordinary day, when the architects of our nation laid the first stone in the foundation of American democracy. In the nearly two and a half centuries since, our Independence Day has come to stand not only for that timeless bedrock, but also for every brick, beam and pillar Americans have marched and bled to build atop it. Our democracy rose up from the ground when we ended slavery and ratified the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments. It rose higher when women fought for suffrage — and won. It was fortified when a lawyer named Thurgood [...]
