Biden’s convention: Left and Not-So-Left unite against Trump

NEW YORK (AP) — Joe Biden introduced the breadth of his political coalition to a nation in crisis Monday night at the Democratic National Convention. He gave voice to victims of the coronavirus pandemic, the related economic downturn and police violence and featuring both progressive Democrats and conservative Republicans united against President Donald Trump’s reelection. The family of George Floyd, the Minnesota man whose death in police custody sparked a national awakening on racial injustice, led a moment of silence in the early moments of the socially distanced TV convention. Most of the speeches were prerecorded.
