Biden, Harris vow to ‘rebuild' America post-Trump
WILMINGTON, United States (AFP) — Joe Biden and Kamala Harris launched their joint White House bid Wednesday, with the newly minted vice presidential nominee saying Americans are “crying out for leadership’’ to overcome the triple crisis of a pandemic, racial injustice and a ravaged economy.

Making their first appearance as running mates, before a small crowd of reporters and staffers at a Delaware high school closed to the public due to coronavirus concerns, the Democratic duo vowed to end Donald Trump’s presidency and, in Biden’s words, “rebuild this country.’’

“Everything we care about,’’ said Harris. “It’s all on the line.’’

A formidable 55-year-old US senator from California and a daughter of immigrants, Harris has already made history as the first woman of color tapped for a major party presidential ticket.

Describing a country at the cross-roads, she left little doubt of her determination to go on the attack, saying Trump “just isn’t up for the job’’ and has left the nation “in tatters.’’
