Joe Biden calls for shared sacrifice to fight the pandemic as Trump rails about baseless election ac

Source: Washington Post

President-elect Joe Biden urged Americans on the eve of Thanksgiving to recommit to fighting the coronavirus, not one another, and to take it upon themselves to make decisions that can save lives.

In a somber and at times pleading speech, Biden reflected on other times in history that Americans have suffered, on the pain felt by the families of the more than 260,000 people who have been killed by the virus, on the sacrifices many Americans are making by scaling back or canceling their holiday plans and on the additional deaths that will undoubtedly come in the months ahead.

He urged Americans to take “simple steps” like wearing a mask, limiting the size of gatherings and practicing social distancing.

“This is the moment where we need to steel our spines,” Biden said from a stage in Wilmington, Del. “Redouble our efforts and recommit ourselves to the fight.”

1. Good luck with that

There is no shared sense of community. Whatever had existed previously has been demolished by the blatant overt racism, sexism, religious bigotry and xenophobia that Trump gave the light of day to.

I give the country 30-50 years before it completely disintegrates.
