NEW YORK CITY — President Biden attended a fundraiser hosted by the Black Economic Alliance for the Biden Victory Fund at the St. Regis hotel in New York today. Addressing approximately 50 attendees, including numerous Black businesspeople, President Biden made several remarks during the event.

Governor Wes Moore of Maryland introduced Biden, commending the President by saying, “This is a person of his word. And he is a person of performance. He is the leader the United States deserves.”

The President received a standing ovation from Democratic supporters. In a lighthearted moment, he quipped about his long tenure in the Senate, saying, “I would not have a career if it weren’t for the African American community.” He went on to assert, “We’ve got a record to run on” and emphasized, “a country to save. That’s not hyperbole.”

Biden shared his aspiration to convince world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) that America “is back” and took the opportunity to highlight the achievements of “Bideneconomics.”

During his speech, the President also touched upon the topic of infrastructure improvements and voiced his criticism of the previous administration, stating, “He [Trump] didn’t build a damn thing… not a damn thing.”

The core message of President Biden’s address centered on his mission to restore dignity, rebuild the middle class, and foster national unity. He emphasized the importance of unity, saying, “If we can’t unite the country, we might as well give up on democracy.” Biden further underscored the significance of preserving freedom, stating, “Freedom is at stake.” He noted that this was true in 2016, in 2020, and remains true today, asserting, “That’s why I’m running. I’ve never been more optimistic. There’s no giving up on America.”

In closing, Biden stressed the critical nature of the next two years, asserting, “What we do in the next two years will matter more than in the last 15 years.” He added that the outcome of the next election will set the course for the next decades.
