Quiz: How well do you remember the 2016 US election?

Cast your mind back four years…

VOTERS IN THE US will decide on 3 November whether Donald Trump remains in the White House for another four years or if Joe Biden will take over the role.

The Democratic Party convention is currently happening online, and the Republican event will take place later this month.

In most polls, former Vice President Biden has a clear lead over Trump – but, as we learned in 2016, polls aren’t always accurate and sometimes get it very wrong.

So, as the US gears up for election fever, how well do you remember events from the 2016 election and campaign?
