Washington: On the occasion of the beginning of Navratri (the 9-day long festival), Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden and Vice-Presidential candidate Kamala Harris extended greetings to Indian-Americans and all those who are celebrating the festival all-round the world.
“As the Hindu festival of Navratri begins, Jill and I send our best wishes to all those celebrating in the US and around the world. May good once again triumph over evil — and usher in new beginnings and opportunity for all,” Biden tweeted on Saturday.
Ahead of the November 3 Presidential Elections, Democratic candidate Joe Biden, who is challenging incumbent President Donald Trump, a Republican, who is seeking another term in the November 3rd Presidential election are set face each other on the third and final Presidential debate scheduled for October 22, as the second debate was cancelled due to Trump tested positive for the coronavirus.
Kamala Harris, who made history in US politics by becoming the first Indian-American and Black woman to get nominated as a major party’s vice presidential candidate, also extended greetings on Navratri.
“@DouglasEmhoff (Kamala Harris husband) and I wish our Hindu American friends and family, and all those celebrating, a very Happy Navratri! May this holiday serve as an inspiration to all of us to lift up our communities and build a more inclusive and just America.” Harris said in a tweet.
Ever since Democrats nominated Kamala Harris, they have been trying to lure Indian-Americans, for the vice-presidential post as the United States is set to vote on November 3.
During the course of their election campaign, both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, have been trying to attract Indian-American voters so far and the extending wishes to Indian-Americans on the commencement of 9-day long Navratri festival was the latest example for the alluring.
Meanwhile, at a campaign event in Macon, Georgia, on Friday night, President Donald Trump taunted his rival that if he loses the November 3 election to Joe Biden he would have to leave the country.
“I shouldn’t joke because you know what? Running against the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics puts pressure on me. Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life, what am I going to do? I’m going to say ‘I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics’. I’m not going to feel so good. “Maybe I’ll have to leave the country? I don’t know.” Trump said, the Hill news website reported.
Replying to Trump’s remark, the former Vice President tweeted, “I’m Joe Biden and I approve this message.”
The anti-Trump Republican group The Lincoln Project posted the video of Trump with a caption “Promise?”.
