Biden and Trump hold dueling rallies in battleground Georgia - ABC News

US President Joe Biden has emerged presumptive nominee of the democratic Party setting up a potential US presidential election rematch in nearly 70 years with Donald Trump of the Republican Party.

Biden won a sufficient number of delegates in Georgia to move past the 1,968 needed to win a majority of the delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Chicago in August.

Trump also became a presumptive nominee of the Republican party having won at least 126 of their combined available delegates in Georgia, Hawaii, Mississippi and Washington state, surpassing the 1,215 needed to become Presidential candidate.

The last presidential rematch came in 1956, when Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower again defeated Adlai Stevenson, the Democratic opponent he had four years prior.

The US presidential election will be held on 5 November 2024.
