You know, we -- I've said many times that there's no reason why this hemisphere shouldn't be the most prosperous, most democratic hemisphere in the world. We have all the makings of that, and we're standing up for democracy and freedom, human rights, and the rights of workers. I know we share those views, you and I. 23

Joe Biden

00:01:30-00:01:47 (17 sec)
