Biden lets America know that help is on the way [View all]

“This is America.” That is the last line in the video former Vice President Joe Biden launched this morning in his long-anticipated 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate announcement.
The video was incredibly compelling as it spoke to a moment in our history that rocked the soul and conscience of the country — the march of white nationalists in Charlottesville that pit neo-Nazis against counter-protesters who marched against hate and racism.

The horrible conflict was followed by Trump's deplorable comments equating the two groups, saying, “There were fine people on both sides."

As an immigrant Latina who's raising bilingual Latino children and whose heart has been broken, along with countless other Americans at what this president is doing to the fabric of our country, Joe Biden’s words moved me and his message shook me to my core.

His speech made me feel like there was help on the way from someone who truly understood just how much of an existential threat Donald Trump is to America.
