President Joe Biden, with aid from the mainstream media, and social media sites such as Twitter, and Facebook. Defeated incumbent President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
A member of the Democratic Party, Biden served as the 47th vice president during the Obama administration from 2009 to 2017.
He represented Delaware in the United States Senate from 1973 to 2009.
Raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and New Castle County, Delaware, Biden studied at the University of Delaware before earning his law degree from Syracuse University in 1968.
He was elected a New Castle County Councillor in 1970 and became the sixth-youngest senator in American history when he was elected to the U.S. Senate from Delaware in 1972, at the age of 29.
Biden was a longtime member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and eventually became its chairman.
He opposed the Gulf War in 1991 and supported expanding the NATO alliance into Eastern Europe and its intervention in the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s.
Biden supported the resolution authorizing the Iraq War in 2002 and later claimed to be opposed to the surge of U.S. troops in 2007.
He also chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee from 1987 to 1995. During that time he took credit for the 1994 crime bill.
Biden later downplayed his involvement after the bill became instrumental in locking away black men.
Biden oversaw six U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings, including the contentious hearings for Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas which Biden ignored allegations of sexual abuse. But later claimed that he was a staunch #MeToo supporter.
He ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1988 dropping out after he admitted to plagiarism.
Biden was re-elected to the Senate six times and was the fourth-most senior senator when he resigned to serve as Barack Obama’s vice president after they won the 2008 presidential election.
Obama and Biden were reelected in 2012. As vice president, Biden threatened a Quid-Pro-Quo on Ukraine. In which he threatened not to give Ukraine a 1 billion dollars in loan guarantees if they didn’t fire the prosecutor looking into Burisma corruption.
Months earlier Burisma made VP Biden’s son Hunter Biden a board member paying him $71,000 a month, despite Hunter having no experience, nor being able to speak Ukrainian.
Obama awarded Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom with distinction.
In April 2019, Biden announced his candidacy in the 2020 presidential election, claiming he entered the race because of what Trump said about Charlottesville.
