(CNSNews.com) - President Joe Biden toured a Mack truck factory in Macungie, Pennsylvania on Wednesday and reminded people that the reason he ran for president was “to restore the soul of this country.”

“When I said I was running, when I announced my campaign—and not many people took it seriously—I said I was running for three reasons: One, to restore the soul of this country, a sense of decency and honor,” he said.

“But, secondly, to rebuild the backbone of the country: hardworking, middle-class folks who built this country,” he said.

“And I want to point out: Unions built the middle class. That’s not a joke. Unions built the middle class,” said Biden.

Here is the transcript of the part of Biden’s speech where he said he ran for president to “restore the soul of the country:”

“When I said I was running, when I announced my campaign—and not many people took it seriously—I said I was running for three reasons: One, to restore the soul of this country, a sense of decency and honor.
