by birtanpublished on August 23, 2020

Andrew cuomo hello today is monday day 170. new yorkers were ground zero for the colbit virus and have gone from one of the highest infection rates on the globe to one of the lowest we climbed the impossible

Mountain and right now we are on the other side we did it with the kindness and assistance of so many new yorkers want to thank everyone who came to our aid

30 000 americans who volunteered to come here to help in our hour of need your love gave us the strength to carry on we went through hell but we've learned much

We know that our problems go beyond the covet virus covet is the symptom not the illness our nation is in crisis and in many ways covet is just a metaphor a virus attacks when the body is weak

And when it cannot defend itself over these past few years america's body politic has been weakened the divisions have been growing deeper the anti-semitism the anti-latino the anti-immigrant fervor the racism in

Charlottesville where the kkk didn't even bother to wear their hoods and in minnesota where the life was squeezed from mr floyd only a strong body can fight off the

Virus and america's divisions weakened it donald trump didn't create the initial division the division created trump he only made it worse our collective

Strength is exercised through government it is in effect our immune system and our current federal government is dysfunctional and incompetent it couldn't fight off the virus in fact it didn't even see it coming

The european virus infected the northeast while the white house was still fixated on china the virus had been attacking us for months before they even knew it was here we saw the failure of a government that

Tried to deny the virus then tried to ignore it and then tried to politicize it the failed federal government that watched new york get ambushed by their negligence

And then watched new york suffer but all through it learned absolutely nothing so today six months after it began the nation is still unprepared and we now face a second

Threat but this time not from mother nature this is a man-made threat by our own negligence we now see the virus ricocheting across the country from one state to another today we

Trail the world in defeating covet we have over five million cases americans learned a critical lesson how vulnerable we are when we are divided and how many lives can be lost when our

Government is incompetent but we learned something else my friends we saw the negative but we also saw the positive as they proved their way failed we proved that our way

Succeeded that america can still rise to the occasion we can put our differences aside and find commonality government can tell the truth and can build trust we can judge by content of character

Rather than color of skin we can care for one another that americans can work together and forge community and a competent government that of course we will wear masks

Because we are smart and because i care about you and because you care about me of course we will socially distance because staying away shows how close we actually are yes we will set up testing and tracing

And do whatever we need to do to mobilize to win this battle because we are america we win wars and we are the greatest country on the globe

And for all the pain and all the tears our way worked and it was beautiful we showed that our better angels are strong and that americans will rise to their call

We saw that even at the end of the day even if it is a long day that love wins americans eyes have been opened and we have seen in this crisis the truth that government matters

And leadership matters and it determines whether we thrive and grow or whether we live or die now we need a leader as good as our people a leader who appeals to the best within

Us not the worst a leader who can unify not divide a leader who can bring us up not tear us down i know that man i've worked with that man

I've seen his talent i've seen his strength i've seen his pain and i've seen his heart that man is joe biden joe biden is what i call america tough tough in the best way tough that is

Smart united disciplined and loving joe biden can restore the soul of america and that's exactly what our country needs today

Thank you and now we'll hear
