Watch Joe Biden’s Presidents Day Speech: “I Know We’ll Get Through This”

On his first Presidents Day as President of the United States, Joe Biden posted a video message calling for unity and a spirit of public cooperation.

Text tweeted alongside the video read, “The American story isn’t a story of presidents, it’s a story of the American people — a story of courage, character, strength, and resilience.” That was also at the opening of the video message he delivered.

Biden’s brief — one minute, twenty nine seconds — missive had echoed of his inaugural speech and other recent public statements, particularly the line, “If we do it together as one nation, one people, one America, we will not fail. America never has.”

Another bit reminiscent of his inaugural: “I promise you, my whole soul is in the work ahead of us.”

The president also invoked predecessors who faced similar periods of great national disunity and strife: Lincoln, FDR, Kennedy and Johnson.

“I know we’ll get through this,” he said in the clip, “because I know the story of this country. The American people have never, ever let this country down, given half a chance.”

Some, including presidential historian Michael Beschloss, took to Twitter to point out that officially the holiday is still specifically known as “Washington’s Birthday.”
