The candidate immediately took to Twitter to accept his nomination, saying “It is the honor of my life to accept the Democratic Party’s nomination for President of the United States of America.”

Former President Barack Obama responded to the tweet with a congratulatory message.

“I’m proud of you,’’ wrote Obama, under whom Biden served as Vice President between 2009 and 2017.

In a keynote address that wrapped up the night, Biden’s wife, Jill, underscored her husband’s humanity, love, understanding and character.

Speaking from Delaware, Biden’s home state, Jill said his purpose had always propelled him, “his strength of will unstoppable and his faith unshakable’’.

The former second lady said Americans needed a leader like her husband worthy of them and the nation.

“We need honest leadership to bring us back together to recover from this pandemic and prepare for whatever else is next.

“We need leadership to reimagine what our nation will be. That’s Joe.

“He and Kalama Harris will work as hard as you do every day to make this nation better,’’ she said.

Earlier in desperate messages, former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter said Biden had the experience and will to build the country back better.

Like speakers on the first night, Clinton attacked Trump’s response to the COVID-19 and the alleged lack of coordination from the White House.

“At a time like this, the Oval Office should be a command centre.

“Instead, it’s a storm centre.

“There’s only chaos. Just one thing never changes, his determination to deny responsibility and shift the blame,’’ he said of Trump.

However, some Republicans, who have crossed party lines to support Biden, also spoke on Tuesday night.

They include former U.S. Secretary of State, Mr Colin Powell, who said Biden’s presidency would “restore America’s leadership and moral authority’’.

“Today, we are a country divided, and we have a president doing everything in his power to make it that way and keep us that way.

“What a difference it will make to have a president who unites us, who restores our strength and our soul.

“I still believe that in our hearts, we are the same America that brought my parents to our shores, an America that inspires freedom around the world.

“That’s the America Joe Biden will lead as our next president,’’ Powell said.
