US election 2020: What are Joe Biden’s plans for office? – BBC Newsnight

As the US election enters its final stages, President Donald Trump’s campaign has reached a frenetic pace since he left hospital last week. Joe Biden, in contrast, has no public events on his schedule. Please subscribe HERE

Two weeks today is officially election day in the United States – and more than 30 million voters have already made their choice in early postal voting.

While the president is hopping round the battleground states in a blur of rallies and interviews, his Democratic challenger Joe Biden has no events or interviews planned for this week, ahead of the final debate in Nashville on 22 October.

Part of his reluctance to appear in public is of course the pandemic that is still raging across America. But it also means he is avoiding tough questions that risk upsetting the competing wings of his party – who are currently united on one policy: getting rid of Donald Trump.

US Correspondent David Grossman reports from Washington on what we know and don’t know about Joe Biden’s plans for government.

    Biden already has withdrawn from the Presidency. Twice he says he's running for Senate.

    Hunter Biden, who is Joe Biden's son left his MacBook with a repair guy. He signed a receipt proving it was him. He never showed up to pick it up, the repair guy looked at the laptop that had a lot of emails linking Hunter Biden to millions in corrupt deals in Ukraine, China etc. Photos of him passed out with a crack pipe etc. The guy handed the hard drive over to the FBI and Rudy Guiliani who is slowly releasing stories. Biden's campaign hasn't denied that it is his laptop when asked and allegedly Hunter's lawyer asked for the laptop back again supporting that the story is true. Potentially huge corruption where Joe Biden and his family made millions selling access to his office. Also, this whole story was blocked on social media if you shared the new york times article your account was blocked. Apparently, they are going to release more in the coming days and weeks before the election. If true, Biden is in trouble. BBC doesn't even mention it. HA

    And what about Hunter Bidens laptop and the things reported to be on it?
    If that turns out to be true?
    What does that say about everyone currently denying it.
    Currently there are two possibilities…
    1. Its Russian interference
    2. The head of the department of Intelligence is corrupt.

    Both are stories worth following up on even if both prove the laptop and its contents to be fake, maybe even more so for that reason.

    @BBC What is your favorite Harris/Biden policy? Defund police, remove your 1st amendment, remove your 2nd amendment, turn 8yo boys into 8yo girls. Raise your taxes, more lock downs?
    What you don't know about Kamala Harris.
    1) she is against our right to bear arms. marxists idea.
    2) She wants to defund the police. again marxists ideology https://youtu.be/3OWiRuJgtVE
    3) she supports BLM a confirmed Marxist organization. https://youtu.be/GdDFOn_rV0Y
    4) she is openly proud of Jacob Blake, what about his victime? https://youtu.be/dPr6i1v-IGQ
    5) Joe will not make it full term, he will step down, be forced to step down or just passaway. A vote for Joe is a vote for Kamala.
    6) She knows there will be a land slide victory for Trump spreading conspiracy theories already. Same old song.
    The coming coup?
    7) Know what you are voting for, don't just vote all one party. BLM is a marxist movement https://youtu.be/rpLItQnrgec BLM IS A Marxist movement Harris supports. https://youtu.be/kh3rrLP1bsw
    8) Harris husband Douglas emhoff Firm Reps Chinese Communist Party-Owned Corporates, Employs Ex-CCP Officials.
    9) kamala dad was a marxists, 12 minute video who is Kamala Harris

    If we lose John Locke, we lose America. https://youtu.be/cw3y-kXvnwE

    The killing of innocent police need to stop.
    If BLM was exposing bad cops with evidence I think the entire world would support the movement legitimately. What they are doing is criminal and people supporting this behavior needs to be locked up. This is far more dangerous to our society then anything Trump has ever done. If anything this makes me support him more. With my wallet and voice.

    How far left is to far?
    Evidence BLM is working with china. Harris knows this by now. Think about that. https://youtu.be/PSmLqfaJxE0

    BBC made this clip to sound like Biden will or already won the election!!!
    BBC should put these issues up and ask voters to think before they vote…
    And not to state before the election that Biden now in office has some issues!!!
    Very clever clip!!!
    You point issues with Biden but you presume he won the election…

    "For many Americans, the fact that he's not Donald Trump is enough to win their vote" LOL
    I am one of those Americans!
    But seriously, we sort of know Biden, he was vice president for eight years under Obama, so he's far from an unknown. I'd argue that even Trump had less scrutiny before his election to the presidency…..perhaps if there'd have been more he wouldn't have been elected!
    Not sure Biden has had the least scrutiny prior to being elected of any candidate, ever….and to that end, I hope we can get back to not talking in outrageous hyperbole, which is all Trump talks in.
