Van Jones on Saturday morning was brought to tears amid reporting on CNN that Joe Biden had defeated Donald Trump to be the next US President.
The 2020 election was called by numerous media outlets after a batch of votes in Pennsylvania propelled Biden to win.
It’s easier to be a dad this morning. It’s easier to tell your kids, Character matters, being a good person matters, Van Jones said. And it’s easier for a whole lot of people. If you’re Muslim in this country, you don’t have to worry that the president doesn’t what you here. If you’re an immigrant, you don’t have to worry if the president is happy your baby has been snatched away.
Through heavy tears, Van Jones said – This is vindication for a lot of people who really have suffered. “I can’t breathe”. That was not just George Floyd. There were a lot of people who felt like they couldn’t breathe.
He added – This is a big deal for us to get some peace and have a reset. Being a good man matters. I want my son to look at this. It is a good day for this county.
“I am sorry for the people who lost, but for most, this is a good day.”
