“What are the common objects that we as Americans love?” asks Biden.
“Opportunity, security, liberty, dignity, respect, honour, and yes, the truth,” he says to applause.
He says the events of the past few weeks – in which President Trump and his supporters have claimed without evidence that Biden’s victory was stolen – have taught us: “There is truth and there are lies. Lies told for power and for profit.”
We must end this “uncivil war” that pits red against blue,” he says, referring to Republicans and Democrats.
“The answer is not to turn inward, distrusting those who don’t look like you or worship the way you do or don’t get their news from the same source as you do.”
