The golden rule of Hollywood films is that sequels are rarely better than the originals – so spare a thought for our poor cousins on the other side of the pond who look set to choose between Joe Biden and Donald Trump in the next US Presidential Election.
Biden, the 46th and current President of the United States of America, looks set to contest the vote as he fancies a second term in the White House as the most powerful (old) man in the world, despite scoring negative approval ratings for the bulk of his time in office and the fact he turns 82 later this year.
Trump, who was beaten by Biden in the last US Presidential Election in 2020, is back and bidding to return to Washington after four chaotic and controversial years as the 45th President. He is the relative junior in the likely contest at the age of 77.
