Joseph R. Biden Jr., a 77-year-old former vice president and longtime senator who has sought the White House on and off for more than three decades, on Saturday renewed his commitment to unifying and serving all Americans at a time the nation is deeply divided along sharply drawn partisan lines.
Mr. Biden, speaking for the first time as president-elect, promised to lead with compassion, decency and character and heal the nation’s soul. Mr. Biden also promised to immediately address the coronavirus pandemic and work to stop its spread, an effort he said would be key to economic recovery.
And to conclude, he returned to the idea that there is nothing Americans can’t do if they work together.
“Let us be the nation that we know we can be,” he said. “A nation united, a nation strengthened, a nation healed.”
What does President-elect Joe Biden mean for India and its relationship with the US?
What that means is that there has been a tradition of bipartisan support in favour of better ties with India, and every US President has made it better than what he inherited from his predecessor over the last two decades.
in short, there is no reason to believe that Biden will not continue the tradition – but of course, he will have his own style and nuances, and will put his personal stamp on the relationship.
