Joseph "Joe" Robinette Biden Jr. became the 46th president of the United States of America on January 20, 2021. The Democrat won a historic and turbulent election against his predecessor, President Donald Trump. At 78, he became the oldest elected president in US history.
Joe Biden was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania in 1942. He has been a member of the Democratic Party since 1969 and served as a senator for the state of Delaware for 36 years. Biden also held the office of vice president under Barack Obama from 2009 to 2017.
Plain spoken almost to a fault, he has traditionally preferred the political center, although his presidency has seen a notable shift to labor talking points, such as worker protection and an increase in the minimum wage, as well as an emphasis on fighting climate change.
