As Joe Biden addressed the nation in his first speech as president-elect, Rihanna and other artists cheered on the 46th president of the United States and his running mate, Kamala Harris.
Biden said he would “make America respected around the world again,” and that although he understood Trump supporters were disappointed in the election results, “this is the time to heal.”
“With the world watching, you ushered in a new day for America,” vice president-elect Harris said during her time on stage. “For four years, you marched and organized for equality and justice, for our lives, for our planet, And then you voted. Now is when the real work begins. We have elected a leader who represents the best in us.”
