Hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh - Statement by Vice President Joe Biden

I am deeply concerned by the outbreak of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh and call for urgent de-escalation, restoring the ceasefire, and a resumption of negotiations between Armenia and Azerbaijan. The United States should be pushing for more observers along the ceasefire line and calling for Russia to stop cynically providing arms to both sides, while reviewing our own security assistance programs to ensure no military capabilities are being repurposed for offensive means.

Yom Kippur - Statement by Vice President Joe Biden

Yom Kippur is a sacred day — a time for Jewish communities to come together to reflect and repent, to fast and to pray. It's a moment to ask forgiveness from those we’ve let down, and to ask ourselves what we can do to be better to one another in the year ahead.

The U.S. Supreme Court - Statement by Vice President Joe Biden

Election Day is just weeks away, and millions of Americans are already voting because the stakes in this election could not be higher. They feel the urgency of this choice – an urgency made all the more acute by what’s at stake at the U.S. Supreme Court.

President Trump’s Visit to Harrisburg - Statement by Vice President Joe Biden

This week, because of President Trump’s refusal to take strong, swift action to combat the coronavirus pandemic, the 200,000th American and the 8,000th Pennsylvanian died of COVID-19. To make matters worse, President Trump is actively trying to strip away health care for Pennsylvanians when they need it most and putting at risk protections for the 5 million Pennsylvanians with preexisting conditions, including Pennsylvanians experiencing long-term side effects from COVID-19.

Pro-Democracy Movement in Belarus - Statement by Vice President Joe Biden

For more than six weeks, the people of Belarus have courageously stood up to a dictator to demand their democratic rights and freedoms. Rather than accept their calls for new elections, Alexander Lukashenka has met these peaceful expressions of freedom with brutal violence — by unleashing his thugs to beat, detain, torture, rape, and disappear protestors exercising their basic right of free expression.

President Trump's Visit to Atlanta - Statement by Vice President Joe Biden

Four years ago, President Trump ran on a platform to make America great again. Yet under President Trump’s failed leadership, nearly 6,800 Georgians have died from the coronavirus. Black Georgians have been hit particularly hard by this crisis — 3,000 Black Georgians have died, 430,000 Black Georgians are uninsured, and 11.8% of Black Georgians have been left jobless. And, in the midst of this global health pandemic and economic crisis, President Trump is still working to tear down the Affordable Care Act and take away protections for Georgians with pre-existing conditions.

President Trump’s Visit to Miami - Statement by Vice President Joe Biden

As we continue to face the COVID-19 pandemic, President Trump is trying to get the U.S. Supreme Court to eliminate the life-saving Affordable Care Act and continues to stand with his Republican colleagues like Governor DeSantis who refuse to expand Medicaid, denying more than 800,000 Floridians access to quality, affordable health care.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on President Trump’s Visit to Jacksonville

Since President Trump’s last visit to Florida just two weeks ago, over 40,000 more Floridians have tested positive for coronavirus and the state marked 13,000 COVID-related deaths. Black Floridians in Duval County are being hit especially hard by this pandemic, where the number of cases is 2.6 times higher for Black residents than white residents, small businesses are struggling to keep their doors open, and families are reeling from the loss of loved ones.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on President Trump’s Visit to North Carolina

Despite repeatedly promising to release a health care proposal, President Trump has never offered a plan of his own. Instead, he cheered on attempts by Congressional Republicans to rip health care away from more than 20 million Americans, and sides with Republicans in North Carolina who stand in the way of expanding Medicaid coverage to more than 700,000 North Carolinians.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on the Events in Louisville, Kentucky

Breonna Taylor was a beloved daughter, member of her community, and an essential worker who served as an E.M.T. as COVID-19 began to spread. But she died, shot in her own home by the police. In the wake of her tragic death, we mourn with her mother, family, and community and ask ourselves whether justice could be equally applied in America.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on President Trump’s Visit to Ohio

President Trump has failed Ohio. From a bungled pandemic response that has cost jobs and lives, to openly calling for a boycott of Goodyear, to abandoning workers in Lordstown whose jobs he promised to protect — Trump has broken promise after promise and turned his back on the Buckeye State at a moment when we are in desperate need of real leadership.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on 100,000 COVID-19 Cases in Wisconsin

As Wisconsin hits this grim milestone, I am thinking of the families that will never again be whole, the empty chairs around dinner tables, and the mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters who have had to say goodbye to their loved ones far too soon.  I’m also thinking of those who are out of work, who are struggling to keep their small businesses afloat and who are struggling to balance working with full time virtual learning because it isn’t safe for their kids to go back to school.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on the 3rd Anniversary of Hurricane Maria

Three years ago, Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, ultimately costing thousands of lives and destroying the homes and hopes of millions of American citizens. In the storm’s wake, the struggle only worsened, as much of the island waited in the wreckage, often without electricity, food, or water, for help that never came. Today, after three years of hardship, thousands are still living with blue tarps for their roofs. Children still report nightmares, as the aftermath of the aftermath haunts survivors. And a still-shattered economy has forced so many to leave the island and their families.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on President Trump’s Visit to North Carolina

From calling our veterans and fallen soldiers ‘suckers’ and ‘losers,’ to purposefully downplaying coronavirus and failing to keep North Carolina’s military families, schools, and communities safe, President Trump has shown North Carolinians that he is unfit to be Commander in Chief.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on Furloughs in the Scranton School District

Educators across Pennsylvania have worked incredibly hard throughout the pandemic to ensure that students can keep their education on track and parents can get back to work. Unfortunately, President Trump has abandoned them at a moment when they need strong, empathetic leadership the most. Trump not only refused to prioritize the health and safety of students and educators in Pennsylvania throughout this crisis — he intentionally misled Americans on the gravity of the virus for his own political gain. And now, his failure to deliver adequate state and local fiscal relief funding has hit home in Scranton, where over 200 school district employees are being furloughed and stripped of their medical benefits.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on President Trump’s Visit to Wisconsin

For months, President Trump misled the American people about the coronavirus — and Wisconsin families continue to suffer the consequences. His betrayal of the fundamental duties of the office has left Wisconsin small businesses shuttered, parents worrying about their children’s safety at school, far too many workers out of a job, and thousands of families mourning the loss of loved ones.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on Senate Republicans Blocking TPS for Venezuelans

By again blocking adoption of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Venezuelans in the Senate today, Republicans continue to prove all their tough talk on Maduro is nothing but empty words. Time and again, when it comes to taking real action, President Trump and his Republican allies have failed to support the Venezuelan people. The Trump administration, which can approve TPS unilaterally, has refused to support the measure and has, instead, mercilessly deported far too many Venezuelans back to the Maduro regime and a massive humanitarian crisis over the past year. Some five million Venezuelans have fled their homeland, and our partners in the hemisphere have borne the brunt of this exodus. The United States should protect those already in the U.S. from being returned to the oppressive Maduro regime.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on Minnesota’s Iron Range

Minnesota’s Iron Range has played a vital role in helping build America. U.S. manufacturing and mining was the Arsenal of Democracy in World War II. It must be part of the Arsenal of American Prosperity today, helping power an economic recovery for working families. We must recognize the contribution of union members who helped build decades of growth in our country. That’s why I’m proud to be endorsed by Iron Range unions across the labor movement — from the United Steelworkers to the AFL-CIO — and to stand with organized labor.

Statement by Joe Biden on the Agreements between Israel, the UAE, and Bahrain

I welcome the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain taking steps to normalize ties with Israel. It is good to see others in the Middle East recognizing Israel and even welcoming it as a partner. A Biden-Harris administration will build on these steps, challenge other nations to keep pace, and work to leverage these growing ties into progress toward a two-state solution and a more stable, peaceful region.

Statement by VP Biden on Standing with Farmers & Biofuel Producers After Trump’s Latest Insult to Ethanol Industry

America has an obligation to uphold our promises to farmers and producers — but from illegally granted small refinery waivers to ill-advised trade wars, Donald Trump has launched a full-on assault on the ethanol industry. Nearly a year after reneging on his promise to restore the billions of ethanol gallons producers lost to Big Oil waivers, Trump has sat idly by as courts have ruled his Administration’s actions unlawful, and farmers who lost demand for one billion bushels of corn have watched prices collapse and markets dissipate.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on President Trump’s Visit to Philadelphia

After four years of failed leadership and broken promises from President Trump, Philadelphians see this president for what he is. President Trump failed Pennsylvania when he promised to bring back jobs but only brought a tax scam that favored the super wealthy and CEOs. He failed Pennsylvania when he intentionally misled the American people and refused to act to stop the COVID-19 pandemic, which has now claimed the lives of nearly 8,000 Pennsylvanians. And he failed Pennsylvania by allowing the pandemic to devastate the economic wellbeing of millions and drive the state’s unemployment rate to reach its highest level in decades.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on the 25th Anniversary of the Beijing Conference

Twenty-five years ago today, the world closed out the historic United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing. It brought together 189 nations to recognize that women’s rights are human rights and to advance the “full and equal participation of women in political, civil, economic, social and cultural life.” It was a landmark moment for the worldwide recognition of women’s essential role in advancing our shared progress as a society. Since then, countries have criminalized domestic violence, narrowed the gender gap in primary schooling, cut maternal mortality almost in half, and increased women’s leadership in government, business, and civil society. It’s progress worth celebrating. At the same time, we all recognize that we aren’t moving fast enough. Twenty-five years after Beijing, there isn’t a single country where women are truly equal.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on International Day of Democracy

Democracy is at the root of American society. It is not the gift or the birthright of any nation, but a responsibility that demands constant engagement and vigilance by all our citizens.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on President Trump’s Visit to Arizona

President Trump intentionally misled Americans about the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic, he still doesn’t have a plan to contain it, and Arizonans are paying the price. People from all walks of life are suffering under his failed leadership — from the small business owners trying to keep their doors open and their employees on payroll to the parents who are struggling with a difficult and chaotic start to the school year — and Arizona’s Latinos are bearing a disproportionate burden.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on Supporting Police Officers in the Line of Duty

Jill and I were devastated to learn of the cold-blooded shooting of two Los Angeles County deputies yesterday, as well as the horrific death of Deputy Ryan Hendrix, a Marine veteran and police officer killed in the line of duty in Henderson County, North Carolina. These attacks are absolutely unconscionable — they bring only greater violence, injustice, and grief to a nation in desperate need of healing.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on the Anniversary of VAWA and the Bans on Assault Weapons and High-Capacity Magazines

Twenty-six years ago, today, two landmark pieces of legislation became the law of the land: the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and the 10-year bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Each of them helped make our communities and our families safer, and delivered real results for vulnerable communities. And we must fight for each of them again today.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on the Ongoing Wildfires

As devastating wildfires continue to rage across California, Oregon, Washington, and throughout the West, Jill and I are keeping everyone affected by this disaster in our prayers. To the families who have lost everything; to the people forced to evacuate their homes; to the brave firefighters and first responders risking their lives to protect their neighbors — please know that we stand with you now, and that we will continue to stand with you for as long as it takes to recover and rebuild from this tragedy. Our thoughts are also with the millions of Americans living just outside the path of these fires, forced into an awful choice between relocating in the midst of an ongoing pandemic or staying put in a place where every breath they draw forces them to inhale smoke.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on the 19th Anniversary of the September 11th Attacks

Nineteen years ago, our nation was tested by an unspeakable act of cowardice and hate. Nearly 3,000 lives were cut short on that God-awful September day: a once-unthinkable toll which tore open the hearts of sons and daughters, parents, siblings, grandchildren and grandparents, neighbors and friends — loved ones faced with the harrowing, hollowing news that the dearest thing in their life had been suddenly taken away.

Statement by Vice President Biden on the Atlantic Article

If the revelations in today’s Atlantic article are true, then they are yet another marker of how deeply President Trump and I disagree about the role of the President of the United States. I have long said that, as a nation, we have many obligations, but we only have one truly sacred obligation — to prepare and equip those we send into harm’s way, and to care for them and their families, both while they are deployed and after they return home. That’s the foundation of what Jill and I believe. It’s why we’ve always prioritized the health and well-being of our service members, veterans, and military families. We’ve visited troops coming home wounded in Walter Reed. We’ve hosted wounded veterans in our home to share a Thanksgiving meal. And, as the proud parents of a son who served in Iraq, we’ve made supporting military spouses, caregivers, and children a focus of our service.

Statement by Vice President Biden on the Poisoning of Alexey Navalny

Once again, the Kremlin has used a favorite weapon -- an agent from the Novichok class of chemicals -- in an effort to silence a political opponent. The mode of attack leaves no doubt as to where the responsibility lies -- the Russian state. This outrageous and brazen attempt on Mr. Navalny's life is just the latest incident in a long history of murder and poisoning of dissidents, investigative journalists, anti-corruption activists, and opposition leaders under the Putin regime. It is the mark of a Russian regime that is so paranoid that it is unwilling to tolerate any criticism or dissent.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on President Trump’s Press Conference

Yesterday, after the violence in Portland, I put out a statement decrying violence under any political banner, and challenged the President to do the same. Today, I traveled to Pittsburgh to explain how the President was making America less safe — on COVID, on the economy, on crime, on racism, on violence — and reiterated my clear message that violence is not the answer to any of these problems. And again, I urged the President to use his voice to the same end.

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden on the Deadly Violence in Portland

The deadly violence we saw overnight in Portland is unacceptable. Shooting in the streets of a great American city is unacceptable. I condemn this violence unequivocally. I condemn violence of every kind by any one, whether on the left or the right. And I challenge Donald Trump to do the same. It does not matter if you find the political views of your opponents abhorrent, any loss of life is a tragedy. Today there is another family grieving in America, and Jill and I offer our deepest condolences.

Statement by Joe Biden on the ODNI’s Decision to End Election Interference Briefings

This is not how democracy works. But it is how American national security and sovereignty are violated. The tools of our government are meant to defend the American people and our system of governance against all enemies, foreign and domestic. And yet, at a moment when we know that our elections are under threat from foreign interference — and when the President of the United States has invited interference from Russia and China — the Director of National Intelligence is failing to provide full information about the danger.

It was one hundred years after emancipation, but Black Americans were enduring another season of Jim Crow brutality.

Statement from Joe Biden on the 3rd Anniversary of Right-Wing Protests in Charlottesville

Three years ago today, the world watched in horror as neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and far-right extremists with torches in hand descended on Charlottesville, Virginia, spewing the same anti-Semitic bile that was heard in Hitler’s Germany in the 1930s. It was a moment of testing for our country, and a wake-up call to the fact that hate never dies — it only hides. And when our leaders give it oxygen, it can come roaring back to life.

Statement from Joe Biden on Five Million COVID-19 Infections in the U.S.

Today we passed five million reported infections of COVID-19 in the United States. It’s a number that boggles the mind and breaks the heart. Five million is more than the entire population of Alabama — or of more than half the states in our union, for that matter. Each time the number clicks up, it represents a life altered, a family stricken with anxiety, a community on edge. And for the families of the more than 160,000 souls who have died because of this virus, it is a pain that can never be undone.

Foreign interference in the U.S. electoral process represents an assault on the American people and their constitutional right to vote.

They undermine the vote and the voice of every U.S. citizen. They attack our very way of life.

World Refugee Day is the time when all nations recognize the humanity and resilience of the millions of people forced from their homes by persecution, war, and violence and renew our commitment to protect the most vulnerable.

But today is also a bitter reminder of how Donald Trump has tried to change America from a nation of refuge and liberty to one of division and intolerance.

And still today, it remains the deadliest attack on the LGBTQ+ community in American history.
