Watch: In acceptance speech, Joe Biden says he will ‘end season of darkness’
Joe Biden officially accepted the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party and vowed to be an ‘ally of the light’ urging Americans to unite to overcome a ‘season of darkness’ that President Donald Trump has cloaked the US for ‘much too long’. On the final day of the four-day virtual Democratic National Convention, Biden was introduced by a video that went through the former vice president’s life, and career, and highlighted his role as a father, husband and political leader. “It is with great honour and humility that I accept this nomination for President of the United States of America. But while I will be a Democratic candidate, I will be an American president. I will work as hard for those who didn’t support me as I will for those who did,” he said. Biden also said that as president, the first step he will take will be to get control of the coronavirus that has ruined so many lives. Watch the full video for more.
