The Democrats also promised to eradicate racism in the United States finally.
Democrat Joseph Biden, who announced his victory in the US presidential election, expressed confidence that the XXI century will be the “American century.” He made the corresponding statement during a televised address to the Americans on holiday celebrated on Thursday – Thanksgiving Day. CNN broadcast his speech.
“No matter how difficult this Thanksgiving may be for us, we must dream of great achievements, and we have a bright future,” he said. “I have never been so optimistic about the future of America as I am now. I firmly believe that the twenty-first century will be the American century.”
“We will build an economy that will lead the world, we will lead the world by the power of our example, not by demonstrating our strength, we will be leaders on climate issues and save the planet, we will develop treatments for cancer, Alzheimer’s and diabetes, we will finally eradicate racism in our country,” the politician added.
Thanksgiving was declared a national holiday in the United States in 1863 by the 16th President of the country, Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865). In 1941, the US Congress passed a resolution that made the holiday celebrated every fourth Thursday in November. However, this tradition began in 1621, when the first settlers from the Plymouth colony in Massachusetts decided to praise the Lord after the harvest. Local Indians were invited to the festive table, who brought a strange bird-a Turkey, which has since become a thanksgiving constant.
