In Wicketdia, we see a definition of the new President of The United States of America, Joe Biden, as follows: 

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. and Joe Biden (born November 20, 1942) is a U.S. politician and president-elect of the United States and was the 47th Vice President of the United States from 2009 to 2017 during president Barack Obama's administration. He is a Member of the Democratic Party and represented Delaware as a senator from 1973 until he became vice president in 2009.


Biden was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, in 1942, and lived there for ten years before moving with his family to Delaware. He became a lawyer in 1969 and was elected to The Newcastle County Council in 1970. He was first elected to the Senate in 1972, becoming the sixth youngest senator in U.S. history.


Biden was re-elected to the Senate six times, and was the fourth-oldest senator when he resigned as vice president in 2009. He was a former member and former chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. He opposed the 1991 Gulf War, but called for Us and NATO intervention in the 1994 and 1995 Bosnian wars. He voted in favor of the resolution authorizing the Iraq war in 2002, but opposed an increase in U.S. forces in 2007. He also served as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, addressing issues related to drug policy, crime prevention and civil liberties, and led legislative efforts to establish the Violent Crime and Law Enforcement Act and the Violence Against Women Act. He chaired the Judiciary Committee during the controversial U.S. Supreme Court nominations for Justices Robert Burke and Clarence Thomas.


Biden sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 1988 and 2008, and failed both times after lacklustre performances. He was then chosen by Barack Obama as his running mate in the 2008 presidential race, which he won. Biden became the first Catholic and the first person from Delaware to become vice president of the United States.


Vice President Biden oversaw infrastructure spending to counter the Great Recession and U.S. policy toward Iraq until the withdrawal of U.S. troops in 2011. His ability to negotiate with Republicans in Congress helped him develop legislation such as the 2010 Tax Subsidies, Unemployment And Job Creation Act that resolved the crisis of economic stagnation, the 2011 Budget Control Act that solved that year's debt ceiling crisis, and the 2012 U.S. Taxpayer Tax Relief Act that addressed the severe "fiscal cliff" problem. In 2011, he opposed the military mission that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. Obama and Biden were re-elected in 2012. In October 2015, after months of speculation, Biden chose not to run for president in 2016. In December 2016, he did not rule out the possibility of running for president in 2020, but announced on January 13, 2017 that he would not run, but he backed away after only four days, and did not rule out re-election. On January 12, 2017, Obama awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom. After Biden left office, he was appointed professor at the University of Pennsylvania.
