ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) United States Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday (July 20) dismissed concerns that Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump would win the U.S election and abandon Obama's strategy for the Asia-Pacific if he were to defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. "So don't worry about our election. Don't worry about our election. The better angels in America will prevail," Biden said to laughs from the crowd. "So at a time like this when the forces of xenophobia and nationalism and demagoguery are once again being trumpeted around the world, including in my own country, when reactionary politicians seek to erode those values our nations hold most dear, tolerance, equality, opportunity for all, we have to remember who we are as Australians and Americans and reflect our best selves back to the world. We are a people who insist with passion and conviction that basic human dignity can not be denied to any man or woman, or child on this earth, that's the core of who we are," he added. Biden will travel on Wednesday to New Zealand where he will spend two days before flying back to the United States with his three grand-daughters.
