At this point, the Democratic Party has practically placed former Vice President Joe Biden as their preferred front-runner to go up against President Donald Trump in 2020.
And yesterday’s events prove it.
Both the president and Biden were at simultaneous events not far from each other in Iowa talking to supporters.
And the two went at the other like it was the final days in the election.
Although President Trump was in Iowa on official White House business regarding his administration’s new policy on ethanol fuel… Trump did his best to keep his speech all business, unlike Biden.
Trump stated, “America must never be held hostage to foreign suppliers of energy as we were under the Obama-Biden – Sleepy Joe – group.”
But according to The Hill, the timing of the feud may have come from a recent Quinnipiac University poll that found Biden taking 53 percent against 40 percent for Trump.
As reported, Biden’s speech took direct aim at President Trump, name-calling him and even labeling Trump as an “existential threat.”
“President Trump is in Iowa today… And I hope his presence here will be a clarifying event,” stated Biden.
Biden then continued to harp on Trump and his administration, knowing how crucial Iowa is and suggested Trump was an inexperienced politician who “lacks empathy for working-class voters.”
“Iowa farmers have been crushed by [Trump’s] tariff war with China… He thinks that being tough is great. Well, it’s really easy to be tough when someone else absorbs the pain.”
He continued by stating, “Four years of Donald Trump will be viewed as an aberration in Americans history. Eight years will fundamentally change who we are as a nation and how we’re viewed around the world.”
That’s ironic coming from one of the most crooked politicians we’ve known.
