Mr Biden, who would be the oldest first-term president to be sworn in at 78, said the term was meant to highlight his truthfulness when compared to Donald Trump.

Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg on Tuesday released a plan his campaign said is meant to secure health "equity" and combat systemic discrimination in the US health care system. "And I think for any, any caucus campaign... it really does require him to travel as much to the state as possible."But Biden's first bus tour also comes on the heels of a recent Iowa poll that showed him trailing fellow moderate, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and statistically tied with Massachusetts Sen".

Also, some of the Democratic candidates who are vying for an opportunity to oust US Senator Joni Ernst next year say they feel the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump should go forward.

The former vice president has laid out a plan to expand the Affordable Care Act, one of the biggest legislative accomplishments of the Obama administration, by adding a public option that's open to all Americans, but preserving the option for individuals to keep their private insurance. Biden said he would face criticism if he copied another candidate's health plan. "You'd have torn my ears off".

France readies for massive transportation strike on Thursday
The Eiffel Tower is warning tourists to delay a visit to the famous monument because the strike will disrupt access on Thursday. The transportation minister said he will meet with unions on Thursday to try to defuse tensions.

This past weekend, Mayor Buttigieg was in the Carolinas and met with students at South Carolina State University, an HBCU.

"There are some legitimate questions about the pathway to Medicare-for-All", Buttigieg said in February.

A spokesman for Buttigieg's campaign declined to comment but pointed to statements by Buttigieg about "Medicare for all who want it" that pre-date Biden's current presidential campaign. The Iowa caucus on February 3 will be Democrats' first nominating contest.

Jeff Weaver, a top adviser to Mr. Sanders who ran his 2016 presidential campaign, responded Tuesday by calling Mr. Buttigieg's argument "ludicrous".
