President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris addressed the nation for the first time on Saturday, Nov. 7.  

Biden delivered his victory speech in Delaware after four days of counting votes across the nation. Supporters were seen waving flags and cheering 

“The people of this nation have spoken,” Biden said. “They’ve delivered us a convincing victory. A clear victory. A victory for we the people.” 

Harris has made history as the highest-ranking woman in the history of the United States. Harris spoke about her late mother in her speech. 

“I am thinking about her and about the generations of women- black women, Asian, white, Latina, Native American women- who throughout our nation’s history have paved the way for this moment tonight,” Harris said. “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last.” 

Biden focused his speech on reuniting the nation and his plan to be a president for all Americans, whether they voted for him or not.  

“I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide, but to unify,” Biden said. “Who doesn’t see red and blue states, only sees the United States.”
