During an address at the Civil War battlefield in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden warned of “unrelenting partisan warfare” as he urged a revival of unity or “a spirit of bipartisanship.”

Making a plea for national unity, Biden took aim at “extremist White supremacist groups menacing our communities” on Tuesday.

The former vice president did not mention President Trump by name but seemed to aim at him as he charged that America “paid a high price” for partisan disputes amid the COVID-19 pandemic. He pleaded to “end the politics” and “follow the science.”

Biden pointed to President Abraham Lincoln, who “taught us this – a house divided could not stand. That is a great and timeless truth…Today again we are a house divided. But that my friends can no longer be.”

“We are facing too many crises. We have too much work to do,” Biden said. He added, “We have too bright a future to have it shipwrecked on the shoals of anger and hate and division. As we stand here today, a century and a half later after Gettysburg, we should consider again what can happen when equal justice is denied, when anger and violence and division are left unchecked.”

He then added that “our trust in each other is ebbing” and “hope seems elusive.”

Biden also said that we must “seek not to build walls, but bridges. We must seek not to have our fists clenched but our arms open. We must seek not to tear each other apart, but to come together.”

He vowed that he “will send a clear, unequivocal message to the nation. There is no place for hate in America. It will be given no license. It will be given no oxygen. It will be given no safe harbor.”
