  • Thank you for the honour.

  • Thank you very much.

  • Thank you.

  • TIME magazine has named Joe Biden and Kamala Harris 2020's Person of the Year.

  • Every elected president since FDR has been person of the year at some point during their term.

  • This is the first time we've also named a vice president as a person of the year.

  • TIME editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal stated the choice was also about the future.

  • Person of the Year is not just about the year that was,

  • but about where we're headed and the next four years are going to be an enormous test of them and all of us to see whether they can bring about the unity they've promised.

  • Harris is now the first ever Vice President to be named Person of the Year.

  • We're at a moment where we're being confronted by many crises that have converged.

  • We're talking about a public health crisis.

  • We are in the midst of an economic crisis, a long overdue reckoning on racial injustice and a climate crisis.

  • We got a lot of things that we need to handle and we multitask to address them all.

  • I think this is an opportunity to establish that out of our diversity comes enormous, enormous strength.

  • We're seeing all over this nation, all cities and all parts of the country, indeed, across the world, an outpouring of joy, of hope, renewed faith, and tomorrow bring a better day.

Thank you for the honour.
