Joe Biden promised to be a president who ‘doesn’t see red states or blue states, only sees the United States,’ and said he would work ‘with all my heart’ to win the confidence of all people. He said “Let this grim era of demonization in America begin to end here and now”. His vision includes an economy more vibrant and more powerful precisely because everybody will be cut in on the deal. In this time of crisis, Joe Biden has a plan to create millions of good-paying jobs.
California Sen. Kamala Harris, his running mate, who makes history as the first woman, the first Black person and the first person of South Asian descent to become vice president said “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last, because every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities”
Former President Barack Obama released a statement – “When he walks into the White House in January, he’ll face a series of extraordinary challenges no incoming President ever has — a raging pandemic, an unequal economy and justice system, a democracy at risk, and a climate in peril, I know he’ll do the job with the best interests of every American at heart, whether or not he had their vote.”
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Priscilla Chan, wife of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and cofounder of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, both congratulated Harris on her historic victory, which makes her the first Black woman and first person of South Asian American descent to be elected vice president. “After a few long days, we now know that Joe Biden will be our next president – and for the first time in 231 years, our next vice president will be a Black and South Asian American woman who is the daughter of immigrants,” Sandberg wrote in a Facebook post. “There are times when America takes a big step toward creating a government that reflects the diverse country we are. Today is one of those days.”
Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins wrote in a tweet that the company aligns with Biden and Harris’ “belief that we must build a more inclusive future for all.”
Box CEO Aaron Levie celebrated Biden and Harris’ victory in a series of tweets. “Businesses need market stability, global trade relations that don’t change on a whim, talent from everywhere, long-range planning and a lack of constant distractions.”
