Trump Vs Biden. The 2020 U.S. elections are approaching.
On November 3, 2020, U.S. citizens will vote on the next White House tenant, and on January 20, 2021, the Commander in Chief of the United States of America will utter these words: "I solemnly swear to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution to the best of my ability. Who will pronounce this sentence?
