Biden and Trump Gear Up for Potential Rematch with Democracy at the Forefront of US Election Concerns

The recent BBC Newsnight video discusses the upcoming US election, focusing on the potential contest between President Biden and former President Trump. The video highlights how both politicians emphasize the theme of American democracy in their messages, albeit with different approaches. It also touches on the relevance of the January 6 Capitol events and its impact on the election narrative, as well as the polarization within the US electorate, with both Democrats and Republicans fearing for democracy if the opposing candidate wins a second term. The piece concludes by suggesting that the state of American democracy may not only influence voters’ decisions but is also perceived to be at risk.
