Biden tweets he will get right to work, echoing the promises he made in his inaugural address:
"I give you my word, I will always level with you. I will defend the constitution. I will defend our democracy. I will defend America... Together we shall write an American story of hope, not fear; of unity, not division; of light, not darkness. A story of decency and dignity. Love and healing. Greatness and goodness. May this be the story that guides us."
Biden asked those who did not support his campaign to hear him out and give him a chance during his presidency. His speech promised that he will be a president for all Americans, and fight for those who support him as well as those who do not, highlighting the importance of democracy and unity within the country.
"This is America's day. This is democracy's day. Today we celebrate the triumph not of a candidate, but of a cause. The cause of democracy. The people, the will of the people, has been heard, and the will of the people has been heeded."
