Wearing masks, matching pant suit sets, and strutting with what can only be called ‘swagger’, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris made their first appearance as running mates for the US presidential elections in Wilmington, Delaware.

“I have no doubt that I picked the right person to join me as the next vice president of the United States of America, and that's Sen Kamala Harris,” Joe Biden affirmed on the podium.

“America is crying out for leadership, yet we have a president who cares more about himself than the people who elected him,” said Harris, when it was her turn to take to the podium.

Comparing the Donald Trump administration’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic to the Ebola crisis under the Obama-Biden administration, “only two people in the US died,” she said. “Compare that to the moment we find ourselves in now. When other countries follow science, Trump pushed miracle cures.”

”Joe Biden and Kamala Harris together make up the most extreme, leftist ticket in American major party history,” said Tim Murtaugh, the Trump 2020 communications director.
