Joe Biden is well known for being the Democrat presidential nominee for the 2020 election, running against the incumbent, Donald Trump. He is an American politician who served as the 47th vice president of the United States from 2009 to 2017 (during Barack Obama presidency). He also served as a U.S. senator for Delaware from 1973 to 2009.

People are asking what kind of phone is Joe Biding using. Is he using an iPhone? Any other kind of smartphone? A simple flip phone? Or no kind of mobile phone at all?

Joe Biden phone in media coverage

The appearance of Joe Biden speaking on mobile phones is very scarce and in those appearances he doesn’t look very used to handle any type of smartphone. For example this is a nice short video of him offering Kamala Harris the post of Vice President:

There’s also a short movie of Joe Biden speaking to supports in Iowa on a phone (not his phone!):

Trump supporters are also sharing a movie of Joe Biden using a phone (not his phone again!) – and claiming that he’s struggling to use it:

Joe Biden phone verdict

All in all, our opinion is that most probably Joe Biden is currently not using any smartphone, but just a simple flip phone – since in its scarce appearances he does not seem to be very used with any kind of smartphone.

If you are curious of what phones other celebrities are using, please check what phone is Bill Gates using (hint: not an Windows phone!) and what phones are BTS using (hint: they are not using their previous iPhones any longer!).

Joe Biden 2020 presidential campaign

As detailed on wikipedia, the 2020 presidential campaign of Joe Biden began on April 25, 2019, when he released a video announcing his candidacy in the 2020 Democratic party presidential primaries. Biden, the vice president of the United States from 2009 to 2017 and a former U.S. senator from Delaware, had been the subject of widespread speculation as a potential 2020 candidate after declining to be a candidate in the 2016 election.

Biden is generally described as a moderate, though he has recently described himself as progressive. His positions include codifying Roe v. Wade into statute, a public option for health insurance, decriminalization of recreational cannabis, passing the Equality Act, free community college, and a $1.7 trillion climate plan embracing the framework of the Green New Deal. He supports regulation as opposed to a complete ban on fracking.

As a former vice president, Biden entered the race with very high name recognition. From his campaign announcement up to the start of the elections, he had been the candidate most identified as the Democratic front-runner. He led most national polls through 2019, but did not rank as one of the top three candidates in either the Iowa causes or the New Hampshire primary. On February 29, 2020, he won a landslide victory in the 2020 South Carolina Democratic primary which reinvigorated his campaign. In March 2020, ten of his former competitors endorsed Biden, bringing the total number of such endorsements to 12. Biden earned enough delegates on Super Tuesday 2020 to pull ahead of Senator Bernie Sanders. On April 8, after Sanders suspended his campaign, Biden became the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

In June, Biden reached the required number of delegates to become the nominee. On August 11, Biden announced that U.S. senator Kamala Harris would be his vice presidential running mate. On August 18 and 19, Biden and Harris were officially nominated at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, making Biden the first former vice president to be nominated for president since Walter Mondale in 1984, and Harris the first Asian American, the first female African American, and the third woman to be nominated for vice president on a major party ticket.
