Joe Biden Now Officially Democratic Presidential Nominee Against Trump For Elections In November

Joe Biden has been an ardent supporter of India-US ties and had also voted in favor of the landmark civilian nuclear deal between the two countries in 2008. 

Washington| Former US Vice President Joe Biden has now become an official Democratic presidential nominee to run for the White House against President Donald Trump in the elections scheduled to take place in November.

The 77-year old democratic leader ook his tally of pledged delegates over the halfway mark of 1,991 from a total of 3,979, thereby becoming eligible for earning the nomination for Presidential post from the Democratic Party.

Joe Biden, who served as the 47th vice president of the USA from 2009 to 2017 during the presidency of Barack Obama, is likely to be formally nominated at the Democratic National Convention in Wisconsin in August.

In the elections held on 3rd November, Joe Biden will be challenging the 73-year old incumbent President Donald Trump, who’s eying re-election after sweeping the polls in 2016.

Joe Biden, after winning a majority of delegates in the Democratic presidential primary, said that this is a difficult time in America’s history and Trump’s angry, divisive politics is no answer.

“The country is crying out for leadership. Leadership that can unite us. Leadership that can bring us together,” Biden said.

“We need an economy that works for everyone – now. We need jobs that bring dignity – now. We need equal justice – and equal opportunities – for every American now. We need a president who cares about helping us heal – now,” he added.

Joe Biden has been an ardent supporter of India-US ties and had also voted in favor of the landmark civilian nuclear deal between the two countries in 2008.

“We want to deepen our strategic partnership on regional as well as global issues. The United States is elevating our engagement in the Asia-Pacific region. We refer to it as rebalance,” Biden had said during his visit to India in 2013.

“Twenty, even 10 years ago, some might have suggested that not have included India in these discussions. Today, India is an indispensable part of our rebalance toward the Asia-Pacific. Indians have looked east through travel and trade for millennia. These ties are reemerging. India is negotiating a trade deal with ASEAN. It is becoming more involved in regional institutions. And that is good news for the region and for us,” Biden had said.
