Abstract

This paper argues that if Biden wins the 2020 U.S. presidential election, his supporters should advocate for him to provide a value-declaring apology for what they consider the major offenses of the Trump administration. Such apologies differ considerably from categorical apologies, but they can provide significant meanings and serve substantive objectives during such a potentially volatile political transition
