- Come rain or shine, Joe Biden has vowed to be there for all Americans
- The former vice president said he would always fight for the interest of Americans
- Biden is facing Donald Trump in a tough presidential contest
Joe Biden, US former vice president and presidential hopeful, has given his supporters his word, saying he will fight for them "rain or shine." The 77-year-old gave this assurance on Tuesday, November 3 through a post on Instagram where he commands over five million followers.
Biden, a former senator who served as the 47th US vice president under Barack Obama, is being favoured to win the election, according to many online polls and predictions.
Since 1963, only three Democrats, Jimmy Carter (1965), Bill Clinton (1992 -1996) and Barrack Obama (2009-2017), have won the presidential election with Republicans taking a dominant run in the Oval Office.
Briefly.co.za reports that if Biden wins the election, he will become the oldest president in the US history and the fourth head of state to be produced from the Democratic household in recent times.
Expressing optimism on Tuesday, Biden promised to safeguard the interest of the Americans in the time of delight and turbulence.
"Rain or shine — I will always fight for you," the former vice president stated.
Biden earlier expressed optimism that the US people are coming together for a big win on Tuesday.
He made this disclosure while speaking during his final campaign rally in Pittsburgh on Monday night, November 2, adding that nothing was going to stop the country from voting.
Meanwhile, President Trump thanked his supporters as they continue to demonstrate their democratic right in the ongoing presidential election. Speaking via a tweet on his personal and verified Twitter account, Trump expressed gratitude to his followers and promised to "never let you down."
Many online polls have favoured Trump's Democratic challenger, Biden, in the keen contest holding court across the country. The president may become the 11th US head of state to be given a marching order should he lose to Biden and Biden's running mate, Senator Kamala Harris.
