Hello, Pennsylvania. Are you ready? Joe's here. Jill's here. Doug's here. You are here. We are here. And we are here to bring this election home. But we've got one more day. That is it. One more day. And I'll tell you, Joe and I are just so grateful. So grateful for your support, for your prayers, for your love, for your time volunteering, making calls, for your trust in us, and for your vote. And as we head into tomorrow, as we head into tomorrow, I know we are empowered. We are optimistic about our future. We know the strength of unity. We know the strength of America. You know, when Joe asked me to join this ticket, saying yes was an easy decision. He and I, we come from different backgrounds, but we were raised with the same values. Hard work, honesty, decency, a belief that we all have a responsibility to lookout for one another. And those are the values I've seen as I've traveled across our country over the past 84 days. The values we share as Americans. Across our country, you can feel -- you can feel that something is happening. In big cities and small towns, wearing masks and socially distancing, I have seen people lining the streets and gathering on corners to show their support. They are bringing the children, holding up signs, wearing their colors and strolling to the polls. [Laughter] And waving the red white and blue. The energy out there is real. And it is inspiring. In this battle for the very soul of our nation, we have seen what can be. Unburdened by what has been. We have seen who we are and a willingness to fight for the country we love. And that is why I know that tomorrow, we are going to elect Joe Biden the next president of the United States of America. So while we're on the subject, tell me, how many of you have already voted? Honk if you voted. And if you haven't voted, go to iwillvote.com and find out when and where you can vote tomorrow because there is still almost 24 hours that we have got to get this done. And honk if you have been sending texts and making calls to get out the vote. Because we all know from the time the polls open tomorrow morning until they close, every minute counts. So we cannot let up because it ain't over till it's over. And everything is at stake. Our health, our economy, our children's futures, a woman's right to make decisions about her own body. A criminal justice system that treats all people with dignity and equally under the law. A Supreme Court that advances the legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. That lives up -- lives up to the phrase above its entrance, equal justice under law. The kind of country we want to be. That's what's at stake. It is all on the line. This is the most consequential election of our lifetimes and the decision we make will, without any question, last for generations. And I'll tell you, as I travel around, one of the biggest issues on everyone's mind is the pandemic that is ravaging our country. And remember, back in January, Donald Trump knew just how bad the coronavirus was, that it was deadly and airborne. But what did he do with that information? He looked straight into the cameras at the American people and lied about it. He covered it up. Now, Can you imagine -- Can you imagine what you would have done if you had known on January 28th what he knew? What you might have done, which your family might have done to prepare? Can you imagine how our businesses, our schools might have been able to prepare? How we is a country might have been able to prepare? But Donald Trump doesn't think about what's best for America, he only thinks about what is best for himself. And as a result, we have lost 230,000 lives to COVID. So many people forced to die alone because of the nature of this virus. 230,000 Americans. The last time we experienced loss like this was World War II. In addition, we're looking at over 9 million people who have contracted the virus and we know it's hitting communities of color the hardest. Latinos are contracting COVID at three times the rate of others. Black folks are dying at twice the rate of others. And let's be clear, we are also in the worst economic crisis we have faced since the Great Depression because Donald Trump failed to contain this virus. He failed to lead. 23 million people are receiving unemployment. One in five mothers with a child under the age of 12 is describing her children as being hungry in America. In one in six households, folks are behind on their rent and concerned they may not be able to pay rent. One in four small businesses have closed. And yet, nine months into this pandemic, this president still doesn't have a plan to contain it. We have witnessed the greatest failure of a presidential administration in America's history. And on top of it all, President Trump is in court right now trying to end the Affordable Care Act and take health coverage away from over 20 million Americans. He's trying to end protections for the over 100 million Americans with preexisting conditions. Conditions like asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure or cancer. Honk if you know somebody -- raise your hand if you know somebody with diabetes or high blood pressure or asthma or breast cancer, because this fight includes a fight for them. America, we cannot afford four more years of Donald Trump. And the first thing Joe and I will do when we're in the White House is get this virus under control. We will listen to the scientists and public health experts. We will provide free testing and treatment and, when it is available, a safe vaccine for all. We will provide schools with the guidance and resources they need to reopen safely, and we will build back an economy that actually works for working people. And let me be clear. Joe and I will not increase taxes on anyone making under $400,000 a year, period. But we will ask the super wealthy and biggest corporations to pay their fair share. And we'll invest those tax dollars to rebuild our nation's infrastructure, to tackle the climate crisis, and create millions of good-paying union jobs -- Make childcare more affordable and invest in our nation's schools and in our nation's teachers. We will build on Obamacare and expand access to healthcare to tens of millions of Americans, including expanding mental health care, because we understand the body doesn't just start from the neck down. It includes the neck up, and it deserves the healthcare that all people need. And we will lower prescription drug costs and protect and expand Medicare and Social Security. And we will work to root out the systemic racism that still exists in our criminal justice system. And we will confront, not condone, white supremacy -- And fight for economic justice, no matter your ZIP Code or your race. And Pennsylvania, we will begin the work of healing and repairing and uniting our nation, Democrats and Republicans and independents and people of all races and all backgrounds, because we know that's how we've always overcome our greatest challenges, together. And, you know, Joe gets that. Joe understands that. You see, Joe is a leader who understands what the American people are going through. He sees us and he understands suffering because he has experienced so much of it himself. Joe Biden is a leader of both strength and empathy, toughness and humility. He understands that the measure of a person's strength is not based on who you put down. It's measured based on who you lift up. And he knows that no matter where we come from or where we live, no matter your race, gender, background, or faith, no matter how we identify or who we love, no matter the language your grandmother speaks, what we have in common is so much stronger than what divides us. And that is the kind of leader America needs right now. And that is why, Pennsylvania, we must win this election. So, remember this. Your vote is your voice, and your voice is your power. And don't let anyone ever take your power from you. Now is the time to stand up. Now is the time to speak out. And now is the time to vote and vote like our lives depend on it, because they do. So, our democracy is always going to be a strong America. Our democracy is always going to be as a strong as our willingness to fight for it. And in this election, let's both like our democracy depend on it. Vote like justice, equality and opportunity, decency, character, and dignity are on the ballot because they are. And one day, one day our children or grandchildren and others, they will look us in the eye, each one of us, and they will ask us what did you do at that moment? And I want to be able to say we did everything we could to fight for our country and their future. So, let's do that. Let's vote. And vote with conviction and confidence and hope. And let's elect Joe Biden the next president of the United States. Hello. Hello Pittsburgh. I'm Joe Biden, Jill's husband, and Lady Gaga's friend. We go back a while. One thing I wasn't going to say but I'll say it now, she spent a lot of time helping me with the Violence Against Women Act and helping so many women who needed help. God love you. You're wonderful. Thank you. Thank you. May God bless you and may God bless America. [Break in Audio] Thank you. Thank you. Folks, John, thanks, old buddy, for sharing your story. And thanks to Mr. Mayor. I don't know where you are. I can't see you out here. But I tell you what, thanks for the passport into town. And thanks for all the speakers we heard tonight as well is incredible, as I said, Lady Gaga. I don't know whether -- you couldn't see, but all my grandkids are over there, Lady Gaga. And when you were singing, they knew every word of every song. They were jumping and moving. I gotta get a picture with them Anyway, my buddy, Congressman Mike Doyle, Governor Tom Wolf, thank you for standing with me and fighting for the dignity of working people. Everyone you've heard from across the state, as well as in Philadelphia, we hear you loud. We hear you clearly. Congressman Boyle has been with me a while, remarkable, great friend and friend of his family. We grew up -- his dad and I grew up five blocks away from -- from one another in Scranton. Patty Casey, Patty Labelle, and John Legend, my lord, John, I'm voting for you after I heard that speech you made. Look, and the second future gentlemen, Doug. Doug, I love you. You are a good man. And I want to thank the next vice president of the United States, a woman I am so proud to run alongside of Kamala Harris. Look, I know as a Scranton boy and then raised on the border of Southern Pennsylvania in Claymont, Delaware, I know it's not always easy to bring Western and Eastern Pennsylvania together. But you know what? The Steelers got a big win yesterday and the Eagles got a big win last night -- So we can both be happy. And folks, I have a feeling we're coming together for a big win tomorrow. My Lord, there's a lot of you out here on this cold night. Thank you. And by the way, in the -- in the parking garage, don't jump. I need you. Don't jump. Folks, look, 18 months ago, I kicked off the campaign at Teamsters Local 249 right here in Pittsburgh. I chose Western Pennsylvania for my first stop as a candidate and now for my last stop before Election Day because you represent the backbone of this country, hard-working families who are asking nothing but a fair shot, an even chance, ordinary people doing extraordinary things, the qualities about this country, that created and sustained the middle class. And by the way, as I said twice earlier today, unions built the middle class. Look, we've been through a lot in this country since we announced. America is facing a confluence of crises unlike anything in living memory. We're still in the battle for the soul of America. Decency, honor, respect, where has it gone with this president? Let me tell you something, folks. Tomorrow is the beginning of a new day. Tomorrow we can put an end to a presidency that has left hard-working Americans out in the cold. Tomorrow we can put an end to a presidency that's divided this nation and fanned the flames of hate. Tomorrow we can put an end to a presidency that has failed to protect this nation. Ladies and gentlemen, millions of Americans are devoted, close to 100 million, and millions more will vote tomorrow. And my message to you is simple. The power to change this country is in your hands, in your hands. I don't care how hard Donald Trump tries. There's nothing, nothing that's going to stop the people of this nation from voting, period. And when America votes, America will be heard. And when America is heard, I believe the message will be loud and clear. It's time for Donald Trump to pack his bags and go home. I honest to God believe the vast majority of Americans are done with the chaos, the corruption, the failure, the responsibility, the indifference to American lives, the indifference to America's dignity. We've got a lot of work to do, not division and distraction, but real, real, real healing of this country. If you elect me your president, I'm going to heal this country and we're going to act. We're going to act to get COVID under control beginning on day one. I'll put in action a plan I've been talking about for months, masking, social distancing, testing, tracing, a plan for a full and fair and free distribution of therapeutics and a vaccine when it comes. Imagine, imagine were we could be if the president only wore a mask from the beginning instead of mocked it. I can tell you this. As ever expert will tell you, we wouldn't have 9 million COVID cases in this nation. We wouldn't have over 230,000 deaths and nearly 100,000 cases nationwide just two days ago. We wouldn't be facing another 200,000 predicted deaths in the next few months. That's what the experts are telling us. If we don't change, 200,000 more people will die by the end of the year. The president knew in January, as Kamala said, that this virus was deadly, but he hit it from the American people. He knew it was worse than the flu, but he lied to us. He knew it wasn't going to disappear. He kept telling us a miracle was coming. It'd be over by Easter. Last Friday, he had the gall to suggest that America's doctors, who've been on the front lines of this crisis for nine months, along with the nurses and so many other first responders, he suggested those doctors were falsely inflating the deaths due to COVID because they wanted more money. For God's sake. [Audience Boos] No, I really mean it. Think about it. Our front-line healthcare workers, they've suffered and sacrificed for nine months, and this president is questioning their character, their integrity, their commitment to their fellow Americans? It's a disgrace. And last night, Trump went on to say he was going to fire Dr. Fauci. Well, I've got a better idea. Let's fire Trump and I'll hire Fauci. Think about it. Look, Donald Trump has waved the white flag of surrender. Remember he said I am the commander-in-chief and I'm going to fight this virus? Give me a break. He waved the white flag of surrender. I'll never surrender. We're going to be this virus. We're going to get it under control. And the first step, the first step to beating this virus is beating Donald Trump. Folks -- -- We love you, Joe. Joe, you're going to save us from this -- -- Well, let me tell you something. Donald Trump keeps telling us what a great jobs president he is. As we say in my faith, bless me, Father, for he is -- I don't know. Jobs president? Here's the truth. Donald Trump is going to be the first president in 90 years, that's a lot of presidents, the first president in 90 years to finish his term in office with fewer jobs than when he started. An independent analysis, not from some liberal think tank, but by Moody's, a Wall Street firm, projects that my plan will create 7 million more jobs and $1 trillion more economic growth than anything the -- the president has proposed. Folks, we can do this. I'm going to end Trump's tax loopholes that incentivize companies to ship jobs overseas. That's why there's not as many jobs here. And I'm going to add a 10 percent surtax on any company that ships jobs overseas. But companies who invest in American manufacturing, bring jobs back, we'll give them a 10 percent tax credit. And by the way, the president of the United States who orders about over $600 billion of contracts a year because of everything from building aircraft carriers to all that we do, all the government spends, I promise you this, it violates no trade agreement. There will be no government contracts given out on my watch that don't make all the products here in America. The future will be made right here in America, in Pennsylvania. Folks, Trump sees the world from Park Avenue, from Wall Street. That's all he can see. What welcome I see it from Scranton where I grew up. I see it from Pennsylvania and Delaware. Wall Street didn't build this country. Working people built the country. The middle class built the country. And unions built the middle class. My dad used to have an expression. He said Joe, the only way you can deal with the abuse of power is with power. Well, the only outfit that can deal with the abuse of power in corporate America or its union power. That's the only way it can be dealt with. And I warn you all if I'm elected, you're going to see the most pro-union president in American history sitting in the White House. Look, I believe we should be about rewarding work, not wealth. Under my plan, as Kamala said, if you make less than $400,000, you're not going to pay a penny more in taxes. But finally, finally, the wealthiest among us, the biggest corporations, 91 of which are the Fortune 500 paid zero in income tax, you're going to start paying your fair share. Why? Why should an ironworker, firefighter, and educator, a nurse pay a higher tax rate than the super wealthy? Folks, and here's a good one, why should you repay more than Donald Trump pays in taxes? New York Times said he paid $750 in taxes one year. Guess what? When they asked him about it a little before that, he said the reason he only paid that is because he was smart. He knew how to game the system. Well, I'm sick of the wealthy guys gaming the system. Most are willing to pay their fair share. Will let me tell you, by the way, he loves to talk about corruption. [Laughter] Oh my Lord. He loves to talk about corruption. You found out last week he's the only president I've ever heard of who has a secret bank account in China. Where he paid, according to the Times, 50 times more taxes in Beijing than he did in the United States. [Audience Boos] Folks, as my mother would have said, enough is enough is enough. Look, we're going to act to protect healthcare as well. Something Republicans for the last 10 years have been trying like the devil to eliminate healthcare plan. By the way, because of economic policies and so many companies going out of business, we've already -- 10 million Americans have already lost their healthcare. And now Trump and the Republicans have jammed through a Supreme Court nominee for one overwhelming reason. They want to destroy the Affordable Care Act. If they get their way, by the way, this is not hyperbole, by the way, guess what's going to happen? Seven days after tomorrow, they're going to be at the Supreme Court arguing to wipe out, root and branch, all of the Affordable Care Act. [Audience Boos] Well, you can say that again because a lot of people are hurting. I can remember as a kid growing up in Claymont and Wilmington in a three-bedroom house, a nice house. Three bedroom, split-level home with four kids and a grandpa. The walls were thin. I can remember one night my dad -- I could hear him restless in the room next to us talking to my mom. I asked her the next morning, what's the matter? She said your dad. They just lost their -- we just lost our health insurance. How many people do you know staring at the ceiling wondering what in God's name are they going to do without health insurance? How many of them -- how many of them are worried like we were when our son came home from Iraq and was lying, dying? I wonder what would have -- I would have done had they been able to come in but for Obamacare and say sorry. Sorry. Suffer the last months in the hospital in peace without your insurance. You've outrun your insurance. How many people do you know, and many of you worry about it. Worry about your kids, worry about what's happening. Well, if they get their way, 100 million Americans will lose protections for preexisting conditions, including 5 million Pennsylvanians. It's wrong. It's wrong. Donald Trump -- look, folks. Being a great consumer healthcare, I feel very strongly about this. Donald Trump thinks healthcare is a privilege. I think it's a right. I'll not only restore healthcare, I'll build on it. You can keep your private insurance if you have it or you can choose a Medicare like option. We're going to increase subsidies to lower your premiums, two deductibles, out-of-pocket spending, surprise billings. How are you going to do that? Because Trump and his buddies are going to pay more taxes so you don't have to do more. And we're going to reduce if I -- if it didn't sound so strange, I wouldn't even explain. You're going to reduce prescription drug costs by 60 percent. You know how? By making sure Medicare can negotiate with the insurance companies for the cost of drugs. We're going to make sure you keep the protections for preexisting conditions. Meanwhile, you know, these guys are for real, unfortunately. Meanwhile, Trump's announced what he'll do if he gets reelected with regard to Social Security. The actuary at Social Security has said if Trump were elected and get past what he wants, it will bankrupt Social Security by 2023. [Audience Boos] Now, y'all may think I'm making it up. But just like I said when Paul Ryan was head of -- was Speaker of the House, I said they're going to cut Medicaid -- Medicare, I should say. And everybody looked -- no, no. They tried to cut it. By $5 billion right off the bat. Folks, these guys or serious. They don't ever -- they've never fully supported these programs. I will protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. You have my word on it. But folks, as we used to say in the Senate, if you excuse a point of personal privilege, there's nothing that has made me more angry about this president than the way he has spoken about those of you who served in uniform. "Losers" and "suckers," referred to you. Our son Beau. His two children are with me tonight. He gave up his job as attorney general to volunteer to go to Iraq for a year. He won the Bronze Star, the Conspicuous Service Medal. He came home with brain cancer. And guess what? He wasn't a sucker. He was a patriot. Like all of your sons and daughters. It angers the hell out of me the way he talks about our veterans. Your parents, your grandparents, all who served. To the best of my knowledge, he's the first president of the United States who has the six generals and admirals who worked in his administration who left, have since left and said he was unfit to be commander-in-chief. Folks, that's why General Stanley McChrystal, the former commander special operations, oversaw the bin Laden raid, Admiral Bill McRaven, and 22 other four-stars endorsed me because they know I'll have their back. It's not happening for him. Trump likes to portray himself as a tough guy, the macho man. Wouldn't you like to have a shot? Anyway, the macho man. When's the last time that he says that people listened to him because he's tough around the world? When's the last time you ever heard from the president of the United States literally being laughed out loud by world leaders when he spoke at the United Nations? So much for listening to him. When's the last time a president of the United States met with the NATO leaders at the NATO summit, other world leaders, chancellors, presidents, prime ministers, and before he didn't -- before they realized it, they were all making fun of him as he left the room. Folks, can you believe we have a president who act like Vladimir Putin's puppy? Putin had put bounties on the heads of American soldiers in Afghanistan, where I've been to many times? It's a rough area, man. But Trump has talked to him six times since then, and he's been frightened to say or challenge him at all. Donald Trump isn't strong. He's weak. This is a president who not only doesn't understand sacrifice, doesn't understand courage, physical courage it takes to be in uniform. Folks, we're going to support our military. They're the backbone and spine of this country. And folks, we have to vote to meet the challenge of the climate crisis. Donald Trump calls it a hoax. I call it's about our health and the ability to create millions of good paying jobs right here in Western Pennsylvania. We can combat climate change with American ingenuity and manufacturing, creating millions of new high paying union jobs. Let me be clear. I will not ban fracking in Pennsylvania. I'll protect those jobs, period, no matter what Donald Trump says. But I tell you what. I will, I will no longer fund oil companies with subsidies, period. Folks, folks, we have to restore the backbone of this country and we also have to unify. Look, we're going to act to deliver racial justice in America. Protesting is not burning and looting, and violence will not be tolerated. But the protest is a cry for justice. The names of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Jacob Blake, Walter Wallace, they're not going to be soon -- be soon forgotten by me, not by anyone in this country, and they're going to inspire a new wave of justice in America. When I met -- When I met with Floyd's family when I went down to Texas, he has a little daughter, six years old. I was in the room with her and I knelt down to talk to her. She looked at me and said, Mr. Vice President, she said my daddy is going to change America. My daddy is going to change America. Well, guess what? We also know, we also know that the American people realize we gotta change. We also know that justice isn't just about -- just about criminal justice. It's about knowing the true justice about jobs and building wealth for your families. No one should be working two jobs to stay in poverty. We need a minimum of $15 an hour -- a minimum wage. And for people struggling, first time homebuyers, they're going to get a $15,000 tax credit from me. We're going to provide capital for young entrepreneurs to start small businesses, provide free community college which, by the way, costs a lot of money, $6 billion a year. We spent about that much money giving breaks on -- for racehorses. Folks, folks, as well as free tuition for students attending state universities if they come from families making less than $125,000. Folks, we can do this, Pennsylvania. In 2008 and 2012, you place your trust in me and Barack. In 2020, I'm asking and seeking your trust again. I take nothing for granted. This is a battle for the soul of America. We have to win this. We have to win this together, bring the country together. I'm proud of the coalition this campaign has built, welcoming Democrats and Republicans and independents. I'm running as a proud Democrat, but I will govern as an American president. There will be no red states and blue states. There will be the United States of America. I promise you I'll work as hard for those who don't support me as those who do. That's the job of a president. The duty to care for everyone, the duty to deal, that's the president's job. So, please vote. If you still have your absentee ballot, get into a drop-box as soon as you can, or about tomorrow in person. Just make a plan and help get out the vote. The power is in your hands, Pennsylvania. And here's the amazing thing. Here's the amazing thing about this moment in our history. The character of the country is on the ballot. On the one hand, we're facing the biggest threats to who we are and what we believe that we've seen in our lifetimes. But on the other hand, our future has never been more promising. I've said it many times. I'm more optimistic about America's future today than I was when I got invited to -- and got elected as a 29-year-old kid, and here's why. We're better positioned than any nation in the world to lead the 21st century. In fact, our workers are three times as productive. We have the biggest economy in the world, the strongest military in the history of the world, the most innovative entrepreneurs. We are virtually energy independent, and we have more great research universities out of which every major new change has come than all the rest of the world combined literally. No nation in the world can match us. We lead by the power of our example, not just the example of our power. The only thing that can tear America part is America itself. No one else can challenge us. But that's exactly what Donald Trump has been doing from the beginning of this campaign, dividing America, tearing us apart, pitting Americans against one another based on our race, our gender, our ethnicity, our religion. It's wrong. That's not who we are. And folks, everybody knows who Donald Trump is. Let's keep showing them who we are. We choose -- we choose hope over fear. We choose unity over division. We choose science over fiction. And yes, we choose truth over lie after lie after lie. Folks, it's time to stand up and take back our democracy. We can do this. We can be better than what we've been. We can be who we are at our best, the United States of America. God bless you all and may God protect our troops. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
