Transcript for Biden and Trump share what they would tell opposing voters during inaugural address
This is about leadership, gentlemen, and this question goes to you, president trump. Imagine this is your inauguration day. What will you say in your address to Americans who did not vote for you? You'll each have one minute, starting with you, Mr. President. We have to make our country totally successful as it was prior to the plague coming in from China. Now we're rebuilding it and we're doing record numbers, 11.4 million jobs in a short period of time, et cetera. But I'll tell you, go back. Before the plague came in, just before, I was getting calls from people that were not normally people that would call me. They wanted to get together. We had the best black unemployment numbers in the history of our country. Hispanic. Women. Asian. People with diplomas, M.I.T. Graduates, number one in the class, everybody had the best numbers. And you know what? The other side wanted to get together, they wanted to unify. Success is going to bring us together. We are on the road to success. But I'm cutting taxes and he wants to raise everybody's taxes and he wants to put new regulations on everything. He will kill it. If he gets in, you will have a depression the likes of which you've never seen. Your 401(k)s will go to hell and it will be a very, very sad day for this country. All right, vice president Biden, same question to you. What will you say during your inaugural address to Americans who did not vote for you? I will say, I'm an American president. I represent all of you, whether you voted for me or against me. And I'm going to make sure that you are represented. I'm going to give you hope. We're going to move. We're going to choose science over fiction. We're going to choose hope over fear. We're going to choose to move forward, because we have enormous opportunities. Enormous opportunities to make things better. We can grow this economy. We can deal with systemic racism. At the same time, we can make sure that our economy is being run and moved and motivated by clean energy. Creating millions of new jobs. And that's the fact. That's what we're going to do. And I'm going to say, as I've said at the beginning, what is on the ballot here is the character of this country. Decency. Honor. Respect. Treating people with dignity. Making sure that everyone has an even chance. And I'm going to make sure you get that. You haven't been getting it the last four years.
