“America has been tested anew, and America has risen to the challenge,” he said during the speech.

“Today, we celebrate the triumph not of a candidate, but of a cause, the cause of democracy. The people, the will of the people has been heard, and the will of the people has been heeded…at this hour, my friends, democracy has prevailed,” he continued.

“On this January Day my whole soul is in this, bringing America together,” he also said, paraphrasing Abraham Lincoln.

“Uniting our people. Uniting our nation. And I ask every American to join me in this cause…we must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal. We can do this if we open our souls instead of hardening our hearts. If we show a little tolerance and humility and if we’re willing to stand in the other person’s shoes,” he continued.
