President Donald J. Trump and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden are obviously the two presidential nominees. And despite their names, commercials and quotes and more filling much of the media, it’s not wrong to think, “Wow I really don’t know much about either candidate.” The following books, first about President Trump, and second about former Vice President Biden, give firsthand accounts of people who know much about them.
