Biden makes first appearance in 2 months

Former US vice president Joe Biden has made his first campaign trip outside his Delaware home since quarantining himself due to the coronavirus pandemic 10 weeks ago, visiting a nearby veteran’s memorial to mark the Memorial Day holiday.

Biden, the prospective Democratic presidential nominee, and his wife Jill both wearing black masks, laid a wreath at a memorial for veterans of World War II and the Korean War.

“It feels good to be out of my house,” Biden told reporters, his speech slightly muffled by the mask.

Maintaining his distance, he saluted about a dozen veterans and other onlookers standing a few yards away and thanked them for their service.

Biden has been holding campaign events online from his house in Wilmington ever since much of the country was forced to stay largely at home.

While President Donald Trump’s activities have also been restricted, he has gradually left the confines of the White House in recent weeks to visit the battleground states of Arizona, Michigan and Pennsylvania in his presidential capacity.
