Former Vice-President of the US, Joe Biden, is the Democratic Party’s candidate for the November 2020 presidential election against incumbent President Donald Trump, along with Kamala Harris as his running mate. Passionate about and committed to asserting and defending America’s role “as a leader on the global stage”, Biden was that country’s 47th Vice-President and deputy to President Barack Obama.
Biden, 77, was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, in 1942. In 1972, at the age 29, he became one of the youngest people ever elected to the US Senate. He went on to serve as a six-term senator from Delaware.
