The United States presidential election is going to be held on November 3. Former United States President Barack Obama has called on to support Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as their candidate.

In his recent campaign on Wednesday for Joe Biden as the White House candidate in Philadelphia, Barack Obama called Trump a “crazy uncle.” Promoting Joe Biden, Trump pointed out some of the conspiracy theories Trump has pushed on Twitter, saying they’d barely be tolerated by a “crazy uncle” with a “lie every day,”

According to him, Trump is encouraging racism. 

“They embolden other people to be cruel, and divisive and racist. And it frays the fabric of our society. And it affects how our children see things. And it affects the ways that our families get along. It affects how the world looks at America. That behavior matters. Character matters,” he said.

Obama also pointed at The New York Times report that said Trump kept a secret Chinese bank account. “Can you imagine if I had a secret Chinese bank account when I was running for re-election?” he said.

Obama said a Biden administration would begin to restore America’s reputation in the world as a nation that “stands with democracy, not dictators,” and that leads by setting an example in efforts to overcome threats like climate change, terrorism, poverty and disease.

On the other hand, Republican President Trump in North Carolina has ridiculed Obama’s misunderstanding of the 2016 election results.

In the meantime, people in many states have voted in advance. Democrat candidate Joe Biden is ahead of Trump according to that result. More than 42 million people in different states have voted in advance.

About half of those votes went to Biden’s donkey sign. He received 14.2 million votes. On the other hand, the Republican Party’s elephant got 10.1 million votes.

However, nothing can be said to confirm the result of the advance vote.
