India: Rahul Gandhi, a senior leader of India’s main opposition Congress party: Fox draws Trump campaign's ire after calling Arizona for Biden. When Donald Trump supporters gathered outside a vote-counting centre in Phoenix, Arizona, on Wednesday night, they had a simple and perhaps unexpected chant: “Fox News Sucks!”
Although the channel has become synonymous with Trump’s rise to power, in the last two days Fox News has become the focus of the Trump campaign’s anger after it made an early call on Tuesday night that the state of Arizona was going to Joe Biden.

US election 2020: what kind of president would Joe Biden be? – podcast. When Joe Biden entered the US Senate as a 29-year-old it was the start of a political career he hoped would lead him to the White House.
Now on election day 2020, he stands on the cusp of his dream. With two failed bids behind him, this year as the Democratic nominee he has worked on the basis of one principle above all else: his task is to rid America of the leadership of Donald Trump. New Yorker journalist Evan Osnos, author of a new Biden biography tells Anushka Asthana that for a Democrat who has been in the centre of the party for decades, including as Barack Obama’s vice-president, he is now running on one of the most radical platforms his party has ever stood on.

Could Donald Trump refuse to accept defeat in US presidential election? As the US prepared for a Joe Biden or a Donald Trump victory, Americans were forced to consider an extraordinary scenario in which Trump loses, but refuses to concede.

Back in July, Trump seemed to be laying the ground for potentially repudiating the vote.

Meanwhile, both Russia and Iran had obtained access to voter information that could be used to “cause confusion, sow chaos and undermine your confidence in American democracy”, he warned.
