In 1972, Nilia was killed in a road accident while buying Christmas trees before Christmas. His daughter Naomi died in the accident.

To Nilia, Biden said that by the age of 30, his dream was to become a senator. The next goal of being a senator is to be president of the United States. He was steadfast in his aim. In 1973, a year after losing Tolia, Biden married Jill Tracy Jacobs. They have a daughter named Ashley Blazer in their house.

Joe Biden was elected the New Castle County Councilman of Delaware in 1970. Then he didn’t have to look back. He fulfilled his dream of becoming a U.S. senator at the age of 30.

In November 1972, he became the Democratic candidate against the then popular Republican Senator Salib Bogs. Then the name is written in history. At the age of 30, he was elected the youngest senator in U.S. history.

He was elected again in 2007. Barack Obama became president and chose Biden as the running mate. He served as Vice President from 2009 to 2017.

In 2015, he lost his favorite. Joe was devastated by the death of his eldest son Beau Biden in brain cancer. He withdrew before the Democratic Party was nominated for the 2016 presidential election.

Before the Gulf War, 11 years ago, President George H.W. Bush voted against The Authorization of Saddam Hussein’s army. Despite the warnings of Biden, the gulf war was decided and a few Americans died in that war.

Since then, Biden has been described as weak on foreign and national defense policy.

The following few years, after widespread criticism of the vote, Biden began to show strong international standing, such as his support for the Us position in the Balkan Civil War, the bombing of Iraq, and the establishment of occupation in Afghanistan.

When President George W. Bush proposed a fresh war in Iraq, Biden was strongly supportive of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction.

After the Iraq war, Biden turned to the left. He opposed the increase in American troops in Iraq and called for the withdrawal of troops from there.

As vice president, he advised against strengthening US forces in Afghanistan and launching operations against Osama bin Laden.

He also defended the US support of Saudi Arabia in Yemen’s civil war after announcing his intention to run for the Democratic presidential election.
