Donald Trump, President of the United States of America, has come hard on the presidential nominee of the Democratic Party Joe Biden with a few months to the country's 2020 presidential election, scheduled for November.
Trump said Biden is being controlled by people from "the dark shadows":
"People that you've never heard of, people that are in the dark shadows. People that you haven't heard of. They're people that are on the streets, they're people that are controlling the streets."
Before making the baseless conspiracy theory, the US president was asked who he thought was pulling Biden's presidential train.

Trump controversially responded that the Democratic presidential nominee is backed by people "from a certain city almost completely loaded with thugs wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms".
Biden, a former United States of America vice president, accepted his official nomination as the candidate of Democratic Party on Tuesday night, August 18. The former vice president tweeted his acceptance after he was adopted as the party's candidate in a virtual convention.
The historic moment played out with Biden and his wife, former second lady Jill, celebrating remotely with family members as the entire convention was virtual due to Covid-19 regulations.
