The presidential elections of the United States are held on November 3, a vote that can make Donald Trump extend his stay in the White House for four more years or, on the contrary, his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, snatches the position of president from him.
Joe Biden was a Delaware senator from the age of 29 and was reelected six times, until he left his post to serve as Vice President of the United States in 2009, when Obama won the presidency. Later, both were re-elected in the 2012 elections.
But, beyond his professional career, Joe Biden is marked by his personal life, in which he has lived more than one tragedy. In fact, one of the traumatic episodes in his personal life has transferred him to the professional field, since the candidate for the presidency does not work any December 18.
The same year he was elected senator for the first time, Biden had to face the death of his wife, Neilia Hunter, whom he had married in 1966, and their daughter, who was barely a year old. They both died in a car accident on December 18., when they returned from buying a Christmas tree.
His other two sons, Joshep and Robert, were also riding in the car and suffered various injuries, but survived and recovered. More recently, In 2015, Joshep died of brain cancer.
In honor and in memory of his wife and daughter, the one who can become president of the United States, Joe Biden, does not work any December 18.
