A lot can be said about President-elect Joe Biden and though the media has been flooded with allegations of voter fraud in his favor, we think it’s time we turn our attention away from such claims in order to take a closer look at the man who will, starting January the 20th, lead the nation from the White House.
He served in the Senate for 36 years, followed by 8 years in Obama’s administration, so a lot can be said about his political career but for now, we want to get to know him as a person in order to better understand the man that will take Donald Trump’s place as president.
Some people may consider him to be modest, particularly after he spoke in his home state of Delaware when he said “I am not here to declare that we have won, but, I am here to report that when the count is finished we believe we will be the winners.”
But in order to get a better idea, let’s look at 10 facts about Mr. Biden that might surprise you, from tragedies to hardships, to his likes and dislikes, let’s take a closer look!
He had a stutter as a child
You’d probably find it difficult to believe that Mr. Biden stuttered as a child, but it’s true. After spending his childhood in Scranton, Philadelphia, he moved to Wilmington, Delaware at the age of ten. At school, he was bullied relentlessly for his stutter and was ever nicknamed ‘bye-bye’ for his attempts at saying his last name.
Nowadays, given his many speeches, you wouldn’t know that Mr. Biden ever had such difficulties. A while ago, a video even surfaced on the internet when he spoke to a little boy about his stutter, encouraging him and saying that despite it all, he still managed to overcome his obstacle.
