During his speech, Biden made no secret of his feelings and interrupted them to suppress his tears. The winner of the presidential election in November recalled the beginnings of his career. “I remember when I went back to Delaware after studying law.” At the same time, Reverend Martin Luther King was killed. Then the National Guard patrolled the streets. I remember this when I decided to become a public attorney. He said this decision started my amazing journey.

The Democrat also recalled Barack Obama’s first victory in the presidential election. – 12 years ago I waited at the train station for a black man who took me with him to Washington, where we took an oath as President and Vice President of the United States, and now we are here and we go to Washington, where we will meet a black woman who will be sworn in as the first vice president in history Biden said of the United States.
