Biden confirmed as Trump’s November opponent

, , ,

Joe Biden has formally won the Democratic Party nomination to take on Donald Trump in November’s presidential election.

He said on Twitter that he had secured the 1,991 delegates needed and would fight to “win the battle for the soul of the nation”.

He had been the effective nominee since Bernie Sanders withdrew in April.

Coronavirus – and its effect on the economy – and the recent civil unrest are sure to dominate the election.
