Vice President Joseph Biden said that he has no faith that Donald Trump will “get through this” and is confident that the American people will be able to come together to defeat Trump in November.
Speaking to a group of supporters in the middle of the night in Pennsylvania, Biden said he does not believe the president-elect will “make good on” his campaign promises and is hopeful that Democrats will regain the White House.
Biden said the American public is “ready” to “get behind a candidate who has demonstrated the ability to unite this country.”
“I believe that our country is ready to take on the Donald Trump and I believe that in this election, we are ready to go out and put our stamp of approval on a nominee who has the vision and temperament and the energy to lead this country and get it back on track,” Biden said.
Biden’s speech was his first since the election, and it was his last before he steps down from the presidency.
He was in Philadelphia for a rally to kick off the Republican National Convention.
Biden was not the only senior Trump adviser who gave a speech Monday, with National Security Adviser Michael Flynn saying the new president-favorites are going to “be a force for good.”
