Patients. With the process work out. As we count all votes. You know we're proving again what we threw for 244. Years in this country. Democracy works. Your vote will be counted.

The strong disagreements and that's okay. Strongest strong disagreements are inevitable in democracy. And strong and repeated disagreements are healthy. Her sign of a vigorous debate. And deeply held views. We have to remember the purpose of our politics is in total unrelenting and unending warfare. No. The purpose of our politics. The work of the nation is it's a fan the flames of conflict. To solve problems. To guarantee justice. To give everybody a fair shot. To improve the lives and her people. We may be opponents but we're not enemies. We're Americans. And a matter who you voted for. I'm certain of one thing. The vast majority in the 150 mayor 150 million American voted. They want to get the vitriol out of our politics. Are certainly knock on agreeing a lot of issues. At least we can agree to be single week. Let's put the anger and the demonization behind us store for us to come together sedation to heal. The stock NBC we have to try. Our responsibilities prison we will be represented the whole nation. I want to know and I'll work as hard for those who voted against me as those who voted for me. That's the job that's the job is called the duty of care for all Americans. We have serious problems are due from couldn TV com me to racial justice and climate change. We don't have any more time to waste partisan warfare. You know more than that we have such an incredible opportunity to build the future we want for our kids and our grandkids. I've said many many times. I've never been more optimistic about the future this nation there is no reason. We can't own the 21 century. Just did you remember who we are. This is the United States of America. There's never been anything anything. We do and am unable to do unable to accomplish what we've done together. I hope to be talking tomorrow. Thank you all and may god bless you may god protect our troops could night. Japanese patients hoping to do instead. A group relatively sober speech we made fourteen points first and he's very confident of victory said flatly that he expects to get through six electoral votes won't. For the five states citizen. Number two didn't so have to become impatient. Has all the votes are counted that's that's a sacred. But this democracy was clear on that as well made it very clear that his two top priorities as president he's already working on getting control of the pandemic. Get in the economy moving again and finally making a plea to get the vitriol out of our politics that we can all come together again. Prominently said it's not the speech. He's coming back tomorrow to give another speech he hopes should be given this one. Look I think that all of us that short answer is yes because I think all of us have the same thinks of this. Lack of closure here give the spiking of Kobe having people all want some and here to something where there's a period innocence and the you have that kind of authority and so he had to give a speech ripping them the back half of it is where he really wanted to go on it would have actually. I was writing it would've started where he disclosed and it. This is not perfect decides that how we want to go but understand what the basic tenants are what the pieces are I think you know you could argue doing at this late. With on results obviously they thought at this point there be more clarity to it. That doesn't mean and guarantee a well let me back at the set when he did this I think it Rios became close goes over to set decently chose 482 bites of the apple rather want. So that's of what the reason the I think they chose to do it and was it a mistake. It's not a what not a mistake is it that testing that they could have done the try to make little lemonade out of alignment. Yet listen I I. Think they obviously play itself from the revolves could be different and you can get stuck in the do we cancel it is a look weaker can't slip but we couldn't do it. But in the end it doesn't really matter hey what if he goes over to seventy tomorrow north to remember tonight.
