Joe Biden and Kamala Harris gave their first TV interview since the election
Steph Deschamps / December 5, 2020
The President-elect of the United States, Joe Biden, gave an exclusive interview yesterday to CNN, together with his vice-president Kamala Harris. The message is clear: it will play a central role in the coming years.
In the interview, Kamala Harris, the Vice President-elect of the United States, explains that together they will be at the forefront of all hot issues. We are truly partners in this process. The president-elect, from day one, when he asked me to join him, was very clear with me. He wants me to be the first in the room and the last to get out.
The pandemic is the first emergency to be treated
The fight against COVID is the priority of the new duo at the head of the United States. The country has more than 275,000 deaths from covid. And for the president-elect, it is imperative to act and this will include wearing a mask.
I will ask people to wear a mask for 100 days. Just wear a mask for 100 days, not forever. 100 days. And I think we'll see a significant reduction. Taking into account the vaccine and the masks, this will significantly reduce contamination. Considerably, explains Joe Biden, the president-elect on the CNN set.
The duo will also work on a foreign policy open to the world and in particular through a rapprochement with Europe. The subject of the independence of the judiciary should also be addressed.
The duo presented themselves as opposites of the Trump presidency
Joe Biden is someone who has endured real struggles, sacrifice and pain. He is also someone who knows what love is. He is someone who has dedicated his life to public service and there could not be a more stark contrast between the current occupant of the White House and the next, says Kamala Harris.
This is a speech that will appeal to voters of Joe Biden, but much less to supporters of Donald Trump.
