Fifty six years ago, Biden, 21, set a goal of becoming president of the United States. Since then, he has twice formally run for president of the United States and failed to win the nomination of the party. Today, 56 years later, Biden, 77, has finally been nominated for president in 2020. On the evening of August 20 local time, Biden officially accepted the presidential nomination and delivered a campaign speech. “The current president has kept America in the dark for too long,” Biden said. Too much anger, too much fear, too much division. If you entrust me with the presidency, I will be your friend of the light, not your friend of the dark. Now is the time for us to unite and end the darkness of America together. ” Biden, whose full name is Joseph Robinette Joe Biden, Jr., was born into a middle-class family in Pennsylvania in 1942. He is the eldest of four brothers and sisters in the family. He has two younger brothers and one younger sister. Biden moved to Delaware with his family at the age of 10, and has been living and studying there ever since. Biden received a double degree in history and political science at University, and then a doctorate in law. As Biden once said, “I’ve never been an active political activist. When I went to college, I was just a middle-class kid in a sports jacket.” However, he spent the rest of his life closely connected with American politics. In 1969, Biden, 27, was elected to the County Council of his county and entered politics. For 50 years, he has been a statesman in Delaware and has become a household name in the United States. Biden, then 21, was on holiday at a beach in the Bahamas, where he met his first wife, nellia hunt. Biden couldn’t afford to pay for the expensive hotel there, so Biden secretly took a towel from the hotel around him and pretended to be a guest of the hotel. < / P > < p > he went up to nellia, sat on the other end of the chair and began to introduce himself. “I’ll be a senator when I’m 30, and I’ll be president of the United States.” < p > < p > Biden’s first political goal was soon achieved. He won the Senate election in 1972 and took office on January 3 the following year. At the time, he was just 30 years old. However, before Biden could recover from the joy of his successful campaign for the Senate, Biden’s life ushered in a major misfortune. His wife, nellia, and one-year-old daughter Naomi, died in a car crash just weeks after he won the Senate seat. His two other sons, Beau and hunter, were also seriously injured in the accident. After the accident, Biden has been taking care of his two sons by his hospital bed and even wants to resign from his newly acquired Senate position. But in the end, he was convinced to stay and took the Senate oath of office at the bedside of his two sons. Since then, he took an hour and a half train from his home in Wilmington, Delaware, to Washington, D.C., for many years. < p > < p > after that, he began to fight in the Senate as a sad single father, and climbed up step by step. For decades since, he has been reelected with high approval ratings, becoming the longest serving senator in Delaware. He also has a second marriage. In 1977, Biden, 35, married his current wife, Jill Jacobs, and had a daughter, Ashley, four years later. However, more than 30 years later, the misfortune of his family came to Biden again. In 2015, his eldest son, beau, at the age of 46, died of brain cancer. Bo is a shining politician in Delaware. He was the Attorney General of Delaware. Biden once regarded Bo as his successor and believed that Bo could achieve his goal of becoming president of the United States. “He’s the luckiest person I’ve ever met in my life, but he’s also the most unfortunate person I’ve ever met,” Ted Kaufman, Biden’s chief of staff and longtime close friend, told the Washington Post. No one has experienced as many incredible ups and downs as he has Biden intended to run for president in 1984. Although he did not officially announce his candidacy for the presidential election, he took part in the party’s primary election speech and won a party representative vote at the National Congress that year. Three years later, Biden officially announced his candidacy for president for the first time in 1987, when he was 45 years old. He participated in the 1988 Presidential election as a young and senior senator, and his fund-raising amount ranked second among the candidates, and his popularity was rising. < / P > < p > just as Biden was full of confidence, the “plagiarism scandal” broke out. On September 12, 1987, the New York Times and other media revealed that Biden had plagiarized some speeches made by Neil Kinnock, the leader of the British Labor Party, in his speech. Since then, American media have continued to pick out excerpts of speeches by famous people such as President Kennedy. < / P > < p > recalling this period, Barbara Boxer, a former senator and a supporter of Biden, told the Washington Post, “he came to Capitol Hill to discuss what to do with all his supporters. We all said to him, “we love you, but it’s very difficult to overcome this problem.” Biden, who has been dormant for 20 years and has rich political experience, announced his candidacy again in 2008. But in the primary, everyone’s eyes were focused on the two big star candidates in the party, Obama and Hillary Clinton. Biden could not gain any advantage in this competition, and then announced his withdrawal from the presidential election. This election campaign is also an important moment in Biden’s political career. After announcing his withdrawal from the election, Obama, who won the primary election, chose Biden as his campaign deputy. His decades of political experience in Congress and his excellent ability to deal with foreign affairs are Biden’s outstanding advantages. On January 20, 2009, Biden was officially sworn in as vice president of the United States. Four years later, Obama and Biden were re elected president and vice president of the United States. During the 2016 U.S. general election, Biden, the outgoing vice president, also considered running for office. But he was still immersed in the grief of his eldest son Bo’s death, and the momentum of Hillary’s election was irresistible, so Biden finally announced that he would not participate in the presidential election. < / P > < p > the time has come for April 25, 2019, when Biden released his campaign film on twitter, officially opening his third run for the presidency of the United States. According to the Washington Post, Biden hesitated before announcing his candidacy for the election. He found his best friend and current Senator Christopher Coons, who took over his 36 year old Senate seat, to seek his advice. “This campaign is going to be painful, it’s like wrestling, and the other candidates are shining new faces,” Coons told him. It’s a time to show one’s skills, service and character. ” But at the same time, Coons told Biden, “you have a unique advantage over trump.” In the primary election, Biden finally defeated many candidates and won the nomination. On August 18, Biden was officially nominated as the presidential candidate in 2020 election on the second night of the Congress. < p > < p > at the four-day conference, dozens of celebrities endorsed Biden through speeches or videos recorded in advance. Political celebrities from Kennedy, Carter, Clinton and Obama family also gave speeches in support of Biden. Obama and Biden have been in power for eight years, and they have developed a deep friendship, calling each other “good brothers.”. “Twelve years ago, when I was looking for a vice president, I didn’t know that I would eventually find a good brother,” Obama said in his speech on the third night of the Congress. I admire him for building resilience in many struggles and compassion in too much grief. He respects everyone he meets. He has compassion, integrity and faith. ” In addition, many Republicans also gave speeches in support of Biden. Colin Powell, a Republican and former U.S. Secretary of state, said Biden “will give full trust to our foreign and intelligence services, rather than dictatorial.” According to Radio France Internationale, just before Biden delivered his most important keynote speech, trump also expressed his views on Biden in a speech in Pennsylvania. He said Biden would become the “worst nightmare” of American people. “He worked in Washington for half a century, betraying the United States and letting people from other countries steal American jobs Make. If Biden is elected, chaos in Minneapolis, Chicago, Portland will spread to your door In his speech, Biden directly criticized trump for “irresponsible” and “keeping America in the dark”, and accused trump of failing to fulfill his basic duty of protecting the American people, but “inciting the flames of hatred and division”. “If trump wins re-election, he will only be the same as he has been in the past four years. Is this America you want your children to see? ” Currently, according to the realclearpolitics poll, Biden’s national average approval rate is 7.6 percentage points higher than that of trump. “New York Times” analysis points out that Biden has finally seized the best opportunity after more than 30 years of his first official election. The BBC points out that Biden’s strategy to beat trump is a sharp contrast in his character. Biden has become strong because of his personal tragedy, which trump, the current president of the United States, does not have. It has been 56 years since Biden became president of the United States at the age of 21 to participate in the presidential election at the age of 77. This is Biden’s third official campaign, and probably the last time he has launched a campaign for the presidency. But whether he can succeed in the White House remains to be seen.
