We do not yet have a final declaration of victory. But the numbers tell us it’s clear, tell us a clear and compelling story: we’re going to win this race. We are on track to have over 300 electoral votes, electoral college votes. And look at the national figures. We are going to win this race with a clear majority of the nation behind us. We got over 74 million votes. I repeat: 74 million votes. This is more than any Presidential ticket has ever been obtained in the history of the United States of America. I know watching these vote counts on TV is very slow, slow, and it’s – and slow as it is, it can be numbing. But never forget: counts aren’t just numbers. They represent votes and voters, men and women who have exercised their fundamental right to have their voices heard. And what is becoming more and more clear every hour is that the record number of Americans of all races, faiths, religions, have chosen change over the same. They gave us a mandate to take action against Covid, the economy, climate change, systemic racism. They have made it clear that they want the country to come together, not continue to separate. Look, we both know tensions are high. They can be raised after a tough election like the one we had. But we must remember: we must remain calm, patient. Let the process unfold while we count all the votes. You know, we are proving again what we have proven for 244 years in this country: democracy works. Your vote will be counted. I don’t care how hard it is for people to stop it. I won’t let that happen. People will be heard.
