The Story

The year is 2024, it is almost time for the people of United States to elect their next president. But, who’s going to win this election and at what cost?

Donald Trump is all set to win back the White House and run for the upcoming presidential election in The 47th.

Only Kamala Harris, who became the President of the United States after Joe Biden’s resignation, stands in Trump's path.
