"To this team, I thank them for extending accepting this call to service and for their families," Biden said today. "I thank you all for your sacrifice. You know, we could do that we could not do this without you, in my view. Together, these public servants will restore America globally, its global leadership, and its moral leadership. And we'll ensure that our service members, diplomats, and intelligence professionals can do their job free of politics."
"They'll not only repair, they'll also re-imagine American foreign policy and national security for the next generation. And they will tell me what I need to know, not what I want to know, what I need to know," Biden said.
