Former Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday said it was time for the American citizens to "regain our sense of unity and purpose," following the acrimonious 2016 presidential campaign and the days since President Donald Trump took office.

"It's time for America to get up" Biden said at a commencement address at Colby College in Maine. "It's time for us to start realizing who in God's name we are."

The vice president, who served under former President Barack Obama, offered words of hope as he spoke about the tumultuous discourse that had raged among Republicans and Democrats following the presidential election, The Hill reported.

"The past election cycle churned up some of the ugliest realities in our country. Civilized discourse and real debate gave way to the coarsest rhetoric and stoking of our emotions," he said. "I assure you it's temporary. I assume it's transitory. The American people will not sustain this attitude."

During a speech last week, Biden indicated he might keep the door open to a possible presidential run in 2020, Fox Business reported Thursday.
