Joe Biden says his biggest worry is that US President Donald Trump will attempt to “steal” the November election, and the Democratic challenger says he has even considered the possibility that Mr Trump will refuse to leave the White House should he lose.

“My single greatest concern: This President’s going to try and steal this election,” Mr Biden told The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

“This is a guy who said all mail-in ballots are fraudulent, voting by mail, while he sits behind the desk in the Oval Office and writes his mail-in ballot to vote in the primary.”

Mr Biden was asked whether he had considered what would happen if Mr Trump refused to vacate the White House in the event he wasn’t re-elected.

“I have,” the former vice-president said, before suggesting that the military could step in to ensure a peaceful transition of power.

“I am absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch.”
