A State of the Union address or an early election campaign speech?

Joe Biden lashes out at Donald Trump, who will almost certainly be his election rival again in November.

The president of the United States has made his case for another four years in the White House in a State of the Union address that sounded more like a campaign speech.

Joe Biden touted his achievements and took aim at his Republican rival Donald Trump.

Polls are predicting a close race for the election in November.

And Biden will have to work hard to convince undecided voters.

He’ll also have to overcome divisions within the Democratic Party over his support for Israel and its war on Gaza.

So, is he doing enough to win over voters so far?

And will pro-Palestine Democrats make a difference at the ballot box?
