Continuing his barrage against the ‘vote by mail’ system, United States President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that: “IF YOU CAN PROTEST IN PERSON, YOU CAN VOTE IN PERSON!”.
Meanwhile, in a sign of the growing political prominence of Hindus in America, the Trump and Biden campaigns are wooing this small religious minority community like never before. Hinduism is the fourth largest faith in the US, representing approximately one per cent of the US population in 2016.
While the Trump campaign promises that re-electing President Donald Trump will reduce obstacles to religious freedoms or Hindus in America, the rival Biden campaign on Tuesday said former vice president Joe Biden has made outreach to the Hindu faith community a priority. For the first time in an American presidential election, the Trump Campaign on August 14 announced the formation of the ‘Hindu Voices for Trump’.
A Democratic National Convention like no other began on Monday, with virtual guests beamed in from across the country, prerecorded speeches delivered straight to camera and a handful of Republicans urging fellow conservatives to vote for Biden instead of President Donald Trump.
