Australia’s Ambassador to the United States Arthur Sinodinos says American democracy “is always being tested”.
“That’s the nature of a democracy,” Mr Sinodinos told Sky News host Chris Kenny.
Discussing the upcoming election between US President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, Mr Sinodinos said he would reserve judgement as to who he believed would be victorious.
“This is a very dynamic campaign,” he said.
“As you’ve been seeing in the last few days, the votes can shift, or the polls can shift in particular states, including battleground states as people start to get more focused on the election”.
