As the US experiences a new surge in coronavirus cases and as deaths from the pandemic approach 125,000, President Donald Trump is addressing this crisis by trying to come up with a new nickname for Joe Biden. "The president is not convinced that 'Sleepy Joe' is particularly damaging," the 'Washington Post' reported, so he's workshopping some alternatives.

Whether they can reduce it to a single word to be attached to Biden's first name, one consistent message from Mr Trump and his campaign is that Mr Biden is a puppet of the "radical left", so captured by those bent on destroying America that should he be elected the whole country will be immediately transformed into a hellscape of burning cars and smashed windows.
