Joe Biden delivers speech as votes come in: “We’re gonna win this!”

“It’s not my place or Donald Trump’s place to declare who’s won this election. That’s the decision of the American people. But, I’m optimistic about this outcome,” Biden said.

As Election Day votes continues to roll in, presidential candidate Joe Biden took the time to address the American people in an impromptu speech.

While speaking to a crowd of supporters at a drive-in event, who stood next to their vehicles, Biden said confidently: “I’m here to tell you tonight that we believe that we’re on track to win this election. We knew because of the unprecedented early vote and mail-in vote that’s gonna take a while. We’re gonna have to be patient... and it ain’t over until ever vote is counted. Every ballot is counted.

“But, we’re feeling really good about where we are... We’re confident about Arizona, that’s a turnaround. We also just called it for Minnesota and we’re still in the game in Georgia although that’s wasn’t what we expected. We’re feeling really good about Wisconsin and Michigan... And by the way... we’re gonna win Pennsylvania!”

The presidential hopeful added: “We can know the results as early as tomorrow morning. But, it may take a little longer. As I’ve said all along, it’s not my place or Donald Trump’s place to declare who’s won this election. That’s the decision of the American people. But, I’m optimistic about this outcome.”

Biden closed, “Keep the faith guys, we’re gonna win this!”

Earlier today (Nov. 3), Former First Lady Michelle Obama wrote in a Facebook post as a final push for the politician: “After seeing the presidency up close for eight years, the most important thing I’ve learned about the job is this: How a president focuses their time and energy in office is a direct reflection of the life they lived before entering the White House. A president’s policies are a direct reflection of their values.

“Joe has lived his life guided by values and principles that mirror ones that most Americans can recognize. It is that spirit and determination that will make Joe the kind of president we need right now. One who will continue to put the needs of the country before his own, who will get our economy back on track and will ensure that all families can get back on their feet.”
