"Empathy matters. And in this moment of crisis, it is more important than ever that the next president restores Americans' faith in good, effective government," Warren said. "Joe Biden has spent nearly his entire life in public service. He knows that a government run with integrity, competence, and heart will save lives and save livelihoods."

Warren also believes in Biden because of how he helped America get out of its last major crisis, the Great Recession.

"When Donald Trump is gone, we will need to do more than heal a nation that has been bitterly divided. We will need to rebuild and transform our country. And I've seen Joe Biden help a nation rebuild," Warren said
