Joe Biden set to launch bid for Democrat nomination

Former US vice president Joe Biden speaks during the kick off his presidential election campaign in Philadelphia Pennsylvania

The incumbent has in turn regularly knocked Mr Biden, making the 2020 presidential contest sometimes feel like a general election more than a year before the vote takes place. I believe Democrats want to unify this nation.

He announced his decision to run for the presidency on April 25 with an online video and climbed to the front of the crowded primary field, in part by highlighting his ability to compete with Trump in potentially make-or-break states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Both Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, were born in the key swing state that will be vital for any Democrat taking on Trump to win in 2020, and a Quinnipiac poll out this week indicates Biden has strong appeal among Democrats in the Keystone State.

Biden's campaign says it sets.

Biden reminded the audience of the fight he and President Barack Obama had when they pushed for the Affordable Care Act, saying he knows how to win "a bare-knuckle fight".

"Like iron filings to a magnet, both will be drawn in the coming days to Pennsylvania, which was key to Trump's victory in 2016 and would be central to nearly any scenario for a Democratic victory in the 2020 presidential campaign", reports the Los Angeles Times. Compared with events held by some of his top rivals - and certainly Trump's rallies - the crowd was large, but not overwhelming. "That's not going to fly with the "neosocialists", he said, describing the left wing of the Democratic Party.

Eiffel Tower evacuated after man spotted climbing up its side
The first two floors can be reached by either elevator or stairs, but only elevators whisk people to the top observation deck. First responders have reportedly made contact with the man, whose motivation for attempting the climb remains unknown.

Trump campaign aides are also finalizing plans for a blitz of rallies beginning around June 16, the anniversary of Trump's 2016 campaign launch, the source said. "Kids are being torn away from their mothers' arms at the border", Green continued. "That they are angry - and the angrier you are, the better", Biden will say at a campaign rally in Philadelphia, according to speech excerpts.

Biden jokingly asked if she'd be his running mate, before shifting the conversation to another topic. Trump is correct that Obama made Biden the powerful force he is today, and to the extent that Trump was a rejection of Obama's legacy, Biden will struggle to beat Trump.

With Biden the clear front-runner, those attacks are likely to intensify.

If the American people want a president to add to our division, to lead with a clenched fist, closed hand and a hard heart, to demonize opponents and spew hatred, they don't need me.

"Let's stop fighting and start fixing", he said. He has already begun publicly airing some of those grievances, tweeting on Sunday to complain about Fox News' town hall with Pete Buttigieg, the South Bend, Indiana, mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.

His message, Biden said, was expressly aimed at Democratic, Republican and independent voters alike. But he described himself as "damn angry" about the Trump presidency. "Somebody needs to calm us down a little".
