    I have always felt deeply connected to the Indian American community because of the values we share which were passed down from my ancestors who risked everything for a better life in America, said Democratic presidential nominee Joe .

    In an for , Biden said he “always felt deeply connected to the Indian American community because of the values we share: duty to family and elders, treating people with respect and dignity, , service, and hard work.”“For me, these values were passed down from my Irish ancestors who risked everything for a better life in America, and they have shaped me as a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and a man of faith and a lifelong public ,” he said.

    He further talked about the stories he has exchanged with Indian American staff over the years, about their families’ sacrifice.

    “And I’ve seen how those shared values, that immigrant story, forged my lasting relationship with Indian American constituents in Delaware and with Indian American staff both in the United States Senate and in the Obama-Biden Administration, where we’d exchange stories of our families’ sacrifice and marvel that only in America would we be living their dream,” he said.

    On her running mate Kamala Harris, Biden said that she “is smart, tested, and prepared. But another thing that makes Kamala so inspiring is her mother, Shyamala Gopalan. We feel Kamala’s pride when she talks about her. She was from Chennai, where her father, Kamala’s grandfather, was active in the fight for Indian independence.”

    Slamming US President Donald Trump, he said “President Trump doesn’t share our values. As a result, today’s America doesn’t feel like the America of our dreams.”

    “We value education, courage, and resilience. But faced with the deadly pandemic, Donald Trump panicked. He is erratic. He doesn’t believe in science or respect experts like Dr. Fauci. His negligence has cost lives and livelihoods and the pandemic is worsening with Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations increasing across the country.”

    The final debate between Trump and Biden took place at the Curb Event Center at Belmont University in , Tennessee on Friday. The election is scheduled for November 3.
