Joe Biden nominated to take on Donald Trump in November


Democrats have formally nominated Joe Biden as their 2020 presidential nominee, as party officials and activists gave the former vice president their overwhelming support to take on Donald Trump. The moment marked a political high point for Mr Biden, who had sought the presidency twice before and is now cemented as the embodiment of Democrats’ desperate desire to defeat Mr Trump in autumn. The roll call of convention delegates formalised what has been clear for months since Mr Biden took the lead in the primary elections’ chase for the nomination.
