As Democrats confirm Biden as his opponent with a show of unity, Trump is retreating furtherinto conspiracy claims and stoking a culture war
Joe Biden at the Democratic National Convention this week plans to pledge to "build back better" if he is elected to serve as the 46th US president.
Biden's pitch is to renew and unify a nation devastated by the coronavirus and, he says, years of bungling by the administration of President Donald Trump.
Trump, in contrast, is doubling down on wedge issues of immigration and race, stirring the grievances essential to the "culture wars" that loomed large in his 2016 victory.

Trump and the GOP hope to make their conference next week a showcase for ordinary Americans they say are the victims of left-wing cancel culture and mob violence.
They will include the Covington High School student Nick Sandmann, who sued a slew of publications over their coverage of his encounter with a Native American protester in 2019, and the McCloskeys, a couple who threatened anti-racism protesters near their St. Louis mansion with weapons during June's anti-racism protests.
With the convention season in full swing, the contrast between the candidates seeking to lead the US through its gravest crisis in recent history could not be starker.
Ugh ... get ready for even uglier. Hard to imagine.
I don't understand how any conscious human being, faced with a choice between the empty and bitter rage offered by Trump, and the warmth and purposeful path of redemption offered by Biden/Harris, could choose Trump.
Who wants four more years of this? Who can physically and mentally withstand four more years of this?
Sued the Washington Post.
A motion filed in U.S. District Court by SANDMANS lawyers requested the case be dismissed at the request of both sides of the suit.
but the ratfucked spoils went to tRUMP/reTHUGS. Let's correct that here in 2020!
things voters actually care about? Oh, right, I forgot who we're talking about. My bad.
