US Election: Joe Biden launches transition website

Published

on

Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. President, has launched an official transition website, www.buildbackbetter.com.

The move comes as votes are still being counted in many states and the presidential race still undecided..



On the www.buildbackbetter.com website is a short statement that reiterates Biden’s earlier assertion that it is the American people that will decide who becomes the next U.S. president.


“Votes are still being counted in several states around the country.

“The crises facing the country are severe — from a pandemic to an economic recession, climate change to racial injustice.

“The transition team will continue preparing at full speed so that the Biden‑Harris Administration can hit the ground running on Day One,” the statement says.

Earlier in a speech, Biden, who is also a former U.S. Vice President, said it was clear that he had won “enough states to reach 270 electoral votes to win the presidency”.

“Power can’t be taken or asserted, it flows from the people, and it is their will that determines who will be the president of the United States, and their will alone. I’m not here to declare that we’ve won. But I am here to report that when the count is finished we believe that we will be the winners.

That was Joe Biden last night, addressing the American people as we wait to find out who has won the White House. He went on to say:

So once this election is finalised and behind us, it will be time for us to do what we’ve always done as Americans. To put the harsh rhetoric of the campaign behind us, to lower the temperature, to see each other again, to listen to one another, to hear each other again, to respect and care for each other.
