On the 20th January 2017, Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States of America, succeeding Barack Obama. During his term, Trump's divisive leadership has most notably seen America withdraw from the Paris Agreement, trigger a trade war with China and seek federal funding to build a U.S.–Mexico border wall.
So far, the election has been plagued by rumors of foreign interference with accusations put to China, Russia and Iran, with additional speculation over an election day delay due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2020 United States presidential election is scheduled for the 3rd November 2020, for which Donald Trump has launched a re-election campaign for the Republican primaries with his Vice President, Mike Pence.
30 major candidates launched campaigns for the Democratic nomination, which became the largest field of candidates for any political party in the post-reform period of American politics.
The race for the Democratic Presidential Nomination was eventually won by Joe Biden, who has since named his Vice-President Nominee as Kamala Harris.
