INJECT THE LIGHT!!!
Joe Biden accepted his party's nomination for president on Thursday night at the DNC - delivering an upbeat message aimed to unite a divided nation. At the outset of his remarks, the former vice president went after President Donald Trump for stoking fear, and exploiting partisan rifts.

The fourth and final night of the Democratic National Convention culminated Thursday with Joe Biden accepting the party's presidential nomination.
