Obama Offers Strong Rebuke Of Trump Presidency

(NBC News) Former Vice President Joe Biden will take the stage tonight at the Democratic National Convention to make the case for his presidential bid.

It comes one night after his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, stepped into history as the first Black woman and the first Indian American on a major party ticket.

She also took time to focus on Biden's opponent, President Trump.
