Joe Biden, Democratic candidate for the US Presidential Elections, disclosed Friday night that he has already begun preparations for work as President of the United States.
Biden gave the speech at Wilmington, Delaware. He emphasized his victory in the election, although votes are still being counted.
‘We don’t have a final declaration of victory yet,’ he stated, ‘but the numbers tell us it’s clear. We are going to win this race’.
Biden further stated that he and his running mate were already meeting with experts in preparation for the White House.
During the speech, Biden was taking the lead in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada and Pennsylvania where Trump was previously leading.
He stated that Americans had bestowed on him ‘mandate for action’ on the coronavirus pandemic, the economy, climate change and systemic racism.
Biden continued: ‘We’re beating Donald Trump by over four million votes, and that’s a margin that is still growing as well.
‘One of the things I’m especially proud of is how well we’ve done well across America,’ he said.
He apologized for the slow vote counting process stating that he understood the frustrations of many Americans.
He urged them not to forget that ‘the tallies aren’t just numbers. They represent votes and voters, men and women who exercised their fundamental right to have their voice heard.’
Trump, on the other hand, warned Biden in a tweet not to ‘wrongfully claim’ victory.
‘Joe Biden should not wrongfully claim the office of the President. I could make that claim also. Legal proceedings are just now beginning,’ Trump stated.
