Jones was asked for his thoughts seconds after CNN and multiple other TV networks called the race and protected that Biden is president elect.

He immediately had to compose himself as he began his impassioned take and stopped on several occasions through to wipe his tears.

‘It’s easier to be a parent this morning,’ he began.

‘It’s easier to be a dad. It’s easier to tell your kids character matters. It matters, telling the truth matters. Being a good person matters.

‘It’s easier for a whole lot of people,’ he added, before listing different groups who had been affected by Trump’s presidency.

‘If you’re a Muslim in this country, you don’t have to worry if the president doesn’t have to want to here,’ he said.

Jones also repeated his statement on Twitter as he said: ‘Today is a good day’

The former Obama staffer began the celebrations on Twitter Saturday morning
