Donald Trump has accused Joe Biden of painting a “grim” vision of America after the Democratic presidential candidate used his closing convention speech to frame the election as an epic battle between “light” and “dark”. In comments pushing back on Mr Biden’s address and this week's speeches, Mr Trump accused his political rivals of putting on the "darkest and angriest and gloomiest convention in American history". The rebuttals came after Mr Biden won plaudits from commentators on both left-leaning CNN and right-leaning Fox News for his delivery of a speech which sought to lay out the big picture of what is at stake at the November 3 election. Closing a four-day convention that has seen fierce attacks on Donald Trump, Mr Biden did not name the president once as he used his speech – dubbed the biggest of his political career – to cast the decision before America as one of morality. "The current president has cloaked America in darkness for much too long. Too much anger. Too much fear. Too much division,” he said in a passage near the start of his address, delivered in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware.
