Michelle Obama stars as virtual Democratic National Convention gets underway

Washington Correspondent

Never in US history has there been a political convention like this one – as the Democrats head into the second night of their entirely virtual gathering.

The most-watched speech so far – Michelle Obama – who declared that Donald Trump was “the wrong President for our country.”

Mr Trump himself is heading to four battleground states while the Democrats are holding their convention – including a stop in the city where Joe Biden was born, Scranton in Pennsylvania. Our Washington correspondent Siobhan Kennedy is there.
