World Obama campaigns for Biden, Trump cruises America
The quest to build the most diverse Cabinet in US history, explained
What we know about who will govern if Joe Biden wins.Advisers say Biden wants to build “the most diverse Cabinet in history” as part of his goal of serving as a “transitional figure” in an increasingly diverse Democratic Party and country.
Barack Obama takes to the track Wednesday evening with his first public meeting to support his former vice-president Joe Biden, leading in the polls ahead of Donald Trump 13 days before the American presidential election, but very much behind on the ground.
For the third consecutive day, the Democratic candidate for the White House, 77, had nothing to his public program while the Republican president continued to roam the United States on the eve of the last highly anticipated debate between the two candidates.
Biden Wants to Transform America (Really)
He doesn’t talk like a revolutionary, but he won’t be satisfied with a placeholder presidency.Over the spring and summer, Biden inverted the historic template of the Democratic nominee. According to time-honored political logic, a candidate poses as a bleeding heart in the primary, only to retrace his or her steps back to the center in the general. During his time in his basement, by contrast, Biden’s ambitions for the presidency began to acquire a grandiosity that his intramural battle with Bernie Sanders hardly anticipated.
A stark, and rare, contrast so close to the poll.
During a meeting in "drive in" mode in front of supporters in their cars, pandemic obliges, Barack Obama will call on voters to vote as early as possible for the November 3 election, thanks to early voting.
Still very popular with the Democrats, the first black president of the United States will be in Philadelphia, in the key state of Pennsylvania.
"We are really at a turning point," he said in a preview video Tuesday night.
"One of the most encouraging things this year has been to see so many young Americans galvanized, organizing and fighting for change," he added, after months marked by a historic movement of struggle. against racism and police violence.
Obama hits campaign trail for Biden in final stretch of White House race
Former US president Barack Obama hits the campaign trail for Joe Biden on Wednesday in a bid to drum up support for his former vice president among young Americans and Black voters in the final stretch of the White House race. The Biden campaign is hoping the star power of America's first Black president will help boost turnout among young voters and African Americans, who are key to Democratic hopes of recapturing the White House. African Americans voted in record numbers for Obama in 2008 and 2012 but their participation dropped off in 2016, a contributing factor to Trump's upset victory over Hillary Clinton.
"I know Joe better than almost anyone. I trust him to be a great president."
"Former presidents do not usually interfere too much in politics and certainly not in the politics of their successor," David Axelrod, former adviser to Barack Obama, told CNN of the meeting.
"I think that was his intention, but Trump changed that intention."
- Biden behind -
Already more than 40 million Americans have voted by mail or in person, some 30% of the total turnout in 2016, according to the independent organization Elections Project.
Video: Donald Trump opts for an increasingly aggressive register (Dailymotion)
The Republican billionaire won only by a short head in 2016 in Pennsylvania, a state potentially crucial for the victory where he is returned Tuesday evening, after two meetings the day before in Arizona.
"All (Biden) does is stay at home," Donald Trump quipped on stage in Erie. He took a "five-day" break, he exaggerated in front of hilarious supporters.
Music's most celebrated—and most notorious—managers
Managing a successful rock band or music act takes an eye for talent, thick skin, savvy business acumen, and a good deal of charisma. For the most part, music management has produced some truly gifted individuals, genuine people with their clients' best interests at heart. But the profession has also reared an ugly collection of scheming opportunists who care little for those they represent and are only interested in lining their own pockets. Click through the gallery and take a look at some music managers who have made the greatest impression—for better or worse!
The tempestuous president, 74, recently recovered from Covid-19, will be in Gastonia, North Carolina, another key state on Wednesday evening.
After a trip to North Carolina, also, Sunday, Joe Biden, 77, returned to his stronghold of Wilmington, Delaware.
He praised photographers Monday on his way to an interview, but has since stayed away reporters, except to give interviews to local media in key states.
His running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, 56, goes to North Carolina on Wednesday to mobilize voters.
- Last debate -
The Democratic candidate will meet Donald Trump on Thursday evening for their last televised duel in Nashville, Tennessee. Their first debate, at the end of September, had turned into a fight.
And nothing indicates that the tone will be this time, less aggressive. On the contrary.
Fearing to be the president of only one mandate, the Republican accentuated, these last days, his personal attacks on the integrity of his adversary.
It has been hammering for several weeks, without concrete evidence to support it, that the Biden family is a "criminal enterprise".
His angle of attack? Hunter Biden's business in Ukraine and China, when his father, Joe, was Vice President to Barack Obama (2009-2017).
Very sensitive to attacks against his family, which sometimes make him lose his temper, Joe Biden must prepare the parade for these expected blows.
Donald Trump had refused a virtual debate on October 15, a format proposed to avoid the risk of infection after his diagnosis.
To avoid the cacophony of their first confrontation, the microphones of the two candidates will be cut when they will not have the floor. An "unfair" decision for the Republican.
As in 2016, Donald Trump poses as a candidate who does not belong to the seraglio and who fights for the Americans.
Asked about the accumulation of unfavorable polls, the president displayed his confidence, highlighting its ability to mobilize impressive crowds.
"We have never seen campaign meetings with such love and such crowds".
