American President Joe Biden stood in front of the nation, full of heart and optimism, and expressed satisfaction because the voters recognized his work. All those votes of millions of Americans showed once again that he is the only candidate from the Democratic Party and that he has no competition.

As the votes in his favor grew stronger, Biden pointed out that those votes were not just for him, but for the ideals of freedom, justice and equality. They are a referendum on the future of America, on what kind of country we want.

"The electorate wants to strike back at Donald Trump's extreme plan to take us back," Biden said. The BBC reported on this historic moment, where America faces a choice, one of the most important in its modern history. Biden highlighted his administration's accomplishments, highlighting improvements in job creation and wage increases, but he also drew attention to the choices ahead.

It is not just a choice between two candidates; it is a choice between two totally different paths, between going back to the darkness of the past or continuing progress towards a bright future, Biden explained. In his statement, Biden clearly condemned the policies of his predecessor, Donald Trump.

He accused Trump of being focused on his own revenge and wanting to end basic freedoms, including women's right to make decisions about their own health. Visibly satisfied with the results, he explained that it was not just a political struggle; it is a battle for the soul of America, for its core values that were created to ensure freedom and equality for all citizens.

Biden ended his speech with a strong call for unity. He called on Americans, regardless of their political affiliation, to unite in the defense of democracy. It is not a fight for just one political party; it is a fight for all of us, for the future of our country and our children.

"To every Democrat, Republican and independent who believes in a free and fair America: This is our moment. This is our fight. Together we will win."

Big win for Trump

While Biden addressed the nation with hope and optimism, Donald Trump also stood before his supporters, celebrating his victories in the Republican primary.

The excitement and enthusiasm in Mar-a-Lago, Fla., was palpable as Trump spoke of his triumph. He proudly pointed out his successes from the previous mandate, emphasizing that he avoided a new war and that he built strong relations with world leaders such as China and North Korea, something we could hear countless times from Trump.

But for all the talk about his tenure, Trump was most focused on the future. He promised the return of "great America", highlighting the date of November 5, 2024 as a pivotal moment in the country's history. His rhetoric was not only political; she was emotional, full of passion and determination to return to power and shape America according to her vision.

According to the projections of CBS, the American partner network of the BBC, on the so-called 'Super Tuesday' Biden won the Democratic nomination in 14 states - plus Iowa, where people voted by mail. He won in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Virginia.

Trump is projected to win 12 Republican primaries -- Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia -- which would further solidify his strong overall lead over Nikki Haley, who took victory in Vermont While Biden and Trump are making their political calculations, the American people have also been active at the polls.

According to CBS projections, Biden won 14 states in the Democratic primaries, while Trump won 12 Republican primaries. These results only confirm the depth of the political division in the country, which is especially evident in the key political issues in Congress.

Of course, people are in favor of change and are dissatisfied with the current situation, but what a change it is if we again have the same two candidates as in previous years. This was also warned by Nikki Haley, the Republican candidate who looks like she won't be able to fight Trump.

As the political drama unfolded nationally, each of those states, from California to Texas, from Ohio to Florida, had its own unique story. Voters faced their own challenges and hopes as they elected candidates who best reflected their interests and values.

After all, elections are just the beginning. They set the tone for what's to come, but the real fight is just beginning. The fight for progress, for justice, for equality. It is a struggle that requires the engagement of all of us, regardless of political affiliation or personal beliefs, because we are living in the most challenging time since the Cold War.

And as Biden and Trump prepare for the upcoming election, America faces its own challenges and opportunities. Will we continue down the path of division and confrontation, or will we turn to each other, ready to work together to build a better future for all?
