THE coming US elections is likely to be a fight between Donald Trump and former US vice president Joe Biden as the latter inched towards Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.
Biden secured victories in the primaries held in three major states, including the key battleground Michigan, taking a substantial lead against his main rival Senator Bernie Sanders.

The former VP has won in the states of Michigan, Mississippi and Missouri against Sanders.
Biden, 77, and Sanders, 78, are only the two major Democratic presidential candidates left in the race now.
Biden’s win in Michigan is crucial as Sanders had clinched the victory in the state defeating Hillary Clinton four years ago, reports said.
Either of the candidates need at least 1,991 of the 3,979 pledged delegates to win the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party.
During his speech in Pennsylvania, Biden said that democracy is at stake in this election and the country cannot afford to have another four years of president Donald Trump who is seeking his second term in the November elections.
“Winning means not only having a president who knows how to fight but how to heal,” he said. “I want to thank Bernie Sanders and his supporters for their tireless energy and their passion. We share a common goal. And together, we will defeat Donald Trump,” Biden said.
Confident of winning the party’s presidential nomination, Biden said, “tonight we are a step closer to restoring decency, dignity and honour to the White House.”
Biden accused that Donald Trump’s America First policy has made America alone.
Meanwhile, Brad Parscale, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager in a statement said, the Democrat candidate for president will be running on a big government socialist agenda regardless of the name on the ballot.
