*(Via ABC News) – In his third campaign for president, former Vice President Joe Biden — who found his “comeback kid” moment in South Carolina on this year’s primary trail — has formally accepted the Democratic Party’s nomination for president in a speech Thursday — 33 years after he made his first bid for the White House.
Under day four’s theme of an “America’s Promise,” Biden assumed center stage at the Chase Center in Delaware — more than 800 miles away from Milwaukee, where the speech was slated to take place in person before the coronavirus pandemic upended the committee’s plans and forced a shift to a mostly virtual format.
Throughout the final night of the DNC, President Donald Trump tweeted out his comments and appeared on Fox News.
During Biden’s acceptance speech, he wrote, “In 47 years, Joe did none of the things of which he now speaks. He will never change, just words!”

Earlier, during a call-in interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, he mused about whether he will watch tonight’s convention.
“I don’t know (if) I’ll be able to watch all of it,” he initially said, before adding, “I’m going to be watching. I watched a lot of hate last night and the night before. I watched tremendous hate.”
Leading up to the end of the DNC, Trump was having an entirely different kind of day.
