BIDEN: “I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done so far and that’s for — thank you for taking the time for watching today. Look, one of the things I think is important, I wish — I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith. I wish we talked about all the great confessional faiths. It’s one of the great confessional faiths. And what people don’t realize is — one of my avocations is theology — don’t realize is we all come from the same root here in terms of our fundamental basic beliefs. And I just want to thank you for giving me the opportunity, for being engaged, for committing to action this November. We’re doing what’s never been done before. You’re registering and turning out one million Muslim voters this November. It matters. Your voice — your voice is your vote. Your vote is your voice. Muslim American voices matter to our communities, to our country. And we all know that your voice hasn’t always gotten recognized or represented, and — or the recognition it deserves. And that’s your right as a citizen.”
