Washington, United States | AFP | Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is to hold a video conference with Joe Biden on Tuesday during which she is expected to endorse his White House bid.
Clinton, who headed the Democratic ticket against Republican Donald Trump in 2016, announced on Twitter that she would be the “surprise guest” at a virtual town hall with Biden at 3:00 pm (1900 GMT) to discuss the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on women.
Biden replied to Clinton’s tweet with one of his own saying “I’m with her.”
Several US media outlets said the former First Lady and secretary of state would announce her endorsement of the 77-year-old Biden at the event.
Biden is the presumptive Democratic nominee to face Trump in November although he will not be officially nominated until the party convention, which has been pushed back to August because of the virus outbreak.
The former vice president has already been endorsed by former president Barack Obama and one-time rivals for the Democratic nomination Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
