It is on this date, Tuesday, November 2, 1920, that I, Warren Gamaliel Harding, have been announced as the new president for the United States of America. I succeeded with my running mate, Calvin Coolidge, taking home over 404 electoral votes, 16,144,093 popular votes, and carried 37 states. My political platform, “Return to Normalcy,” proved effective in the U.S. and I plan to see every promise through to ensure the general welfare of the citizens of America. I have many obstacles in my path and I look forward to accomplishing these tasks through whatever means necessary. Our most dangerous tendency is to expect too much of government, and at the same time do for it too little, I will do my best to ensure that I do everything for my country and my people.
Warren G. Harding
