Muslim Americans will serve at every level in the government after Donald Trump is defeated in the 2020 elections, says Joe Biden, promising all walks of people to be included in his administration.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has vowed to repeal Donald Trump’s controversial ‘Muslim ban’ if elected president and said in a video message to civil rights organisation ‘Muslim Advocates’ promising to include Muslim Americans at every level in his administration spreading equality and opportunities for all, making his government look like “the real America.”
“As president, I’ll work with you to rip the poison of hate from our society to honour your contributions and seek your ideas. My administration will look like America, with Muslim Americans serving at every level,” he said.
Biden also hit out at Trump’s Muslim ban, which he signed after he took office in 2017 that banned citizens of 7 Muslims countries into America. “On day one, I’ll end Trump’s unconstitutional Muslim ban,” he said.
The former vice president called for unity in America and not division and stated that he’ll rebuild the criminal justice system that’s focused on redemption and not retribution.
“I’ll push Congress to pass hate crimes legislation. I’ll implement the national strategy I’ve laid out since March to be Covid. I’ll end the deadly inequities in health care, education, and opportunity that this crisis has amplified. And together, we’ll rebuild the criminal justice system focused on redemption, not retribution.”
Biden lashed out at Trump saying the president is stoking anger and division against immigrants and Muslims, causing distress in the streets, and said the time for people being ripped apart on the basis of religion and race must stop.
“This is not who we are.” he said, “Abraham Lincoln told us at Gettysburg, a house divided cannot stand. Today, trust is ebbing. Hope seems elusive. Instead of healing, we’re being ripped apart and I refuse to let that happen. We have two brighter future to leave it shipwrecked on the shores of anger and division.”
Biden promised a better America full of hope and inclusion to all walks of people and the power to make his ideas come true is now in the hands of the American people. He asked voters to choose the best of us as humans and not the worst.
“I said from the start. I’m running the United States country to embrace hope, not fear, light, not darkness, the future, not the past, and I’m going to appeal to the best of us, not our worst side. I mean, you all know better than anyone it’s in our power to change course, to organise, advocate, and to vote.”
