Joe Biden, the 46th president of the United States with Kamala Harris as his vice-president, was the 47th vice president of the U.S. from 2009 to 2017 under President Barack Obama. Mr. Biden was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1972 and served six terms there.
The Democrat called for an end of “a grim era of demonization in America” hours after being declared the 46th president of the U.S. Donald Trump hasn’t conceded the race.
The Biden campaign says households earning less than $400,000 a year won’t pay more in taxes, but corporations and wealthier Americans would see big increases.
For years, democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s Ray-Ban sunglasses have been his sartorial signature. At the Democratic National Convention they’re a part of his campaign too.
