Joe Biden voted in his Wilmington stronghold

Accompanied by his wife Jill Biden, the Democratic candidate voted in Wilmington, Delaware.

Leading the polls, Joe Biden voted Wednesday in his stronghold of Wilmington and denounced as an "insult to those who suffer" the management of the Covid-19 pandemic by his rival Donald Trump, who crisscrosses America at a rapid pace frantic.

Six days before the US presidential election, the strategies of the two septuagenarian candidates are poles apart. While the Republican president, 74, is due to hold two major campaign meetings in Arizona, one of those decisive states for the outcome of the November 3 election, Joe Biden, 77, has planned to spend the whole day in his small town in Delaware.

After a briefing on the Covid-19 by videoconference, the former Democratic vice-president has exhausted the record of the Republican billionaire. The United States is the country most bereaved by the new coronavirus, with more than 227,000 dead.

"The Trump administration's refusal to recognize the reality we are living through, as nearly 1,000 Americans die every day, every day, is an insult to every person who suffers from Covid-19 and every family who has lost a loved one ", he launched in front of a handful of journalists, during a brief speech.

In a theater in Wilmington, he wanted to present himself as a realistic candidate against the Republican who had promised that the virus would disappear "as if by a miracle".

"We will let science guide our decisions," says Joe Biden

"I am not running on the false promise that I would be able to put an end to this pandemic by snapping my fingers," said the ex-right arm of Barack Obama. "But what I can promise you is to do the right thing. We will let science guide our decisions."

Then, accompanied by his wife Jill Biden, the candidate went to vote in Wilmington. He had earlier said that he hoped that he and other Democrats running for the presidential, parliamentary and local elections on November 3 could "make a difference".
