Former V.P. Joe Biden is going around the country, making speeches like he is a candidate for president in 2020 without declaring he is one yet. He says things like “If I was running…” and the audience cheers wildly. He attacks President Trump unmercifully saying things like, “This president sneers at our values, literally. He thinks they make us weak, he thinks we are suckers,” Biden said. “Well, he is dead wrong.”
Biden also accused Trump of giving tax cuts to the wealthiest one percent of Americans.“Trump turned his back on the very people he promised he would help, farmers, construction workers, teachers, home health care workers,” Biden said. “So many folks in places like Delaware, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin were whipsawed by a changing world economy and left behind by the draconian policies of this administration.”
Nothing could be further from the truth as Americans are doing better under Trump than they have ever done before and we have the greatest economy in 50 years. Hispanics, blacks and youth unemployment is the lowest in 50 years and women’s unemployment is the lowest in 64 years. Unemployment, in general, is at an all-time low at 3.9 percent. Everyone is benefiting from tax cuts not just the rich. People have more money in their paychecks because Trump lowered the FICA (social security) tax and people collecting social security got a nice raise. Companies are coming back here from overseas because he lowered the big business tax from 35% to 21% and small business tax from 25% to 15%, It’s Biden’s ideas that are old and draconian not Trump’s.
Biden became enraged against Trump’s proposed budget for hurting middle-class Americans, cutting federal programs, and raising the federal deficit.
“Folks, we are literally in a battle for the soul of America,” Biden said to applause.
Unfortunately for Biden, his comments are void due to the fact that under President Trump the economy has been the highest it has been since 2001. Also, because of his work with the economy, his approval ratings have been the best it’s ever been.
Advisers for former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign-in-waiting are debating whether to name failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as his running mate, a Thursday report says.
According to Axios, Biden aides believe adding Abrams to the ticket would send a strong signal to voters that he’s not “just another old white guy.” The outlet said Team Biden isn’t going all-in on picking the rising progressive star just yet, worrying that the move could be received as a “gimmick” and open the former Vice President up to a new line of attacks.
The report comes after the two high-profile Democrats met last week in Washington, D.C.
Abrams’ failed bid for the governor of Georgia against Republican Brian Kemp garnered her national attention. Despite losing to Kemp 50.2 percent to 48.8 percent, Abrams still refuses to concede the race, accusing her opponent of suppressing black voters to win what was one of the 2018 midterm elections’ most-watched races.
Reports of Biden naming Abrams as his out-of-the-gate vice president choice also come as Biden is reaching out to big-money donors hoping to secure contributions ahead of officially entering the race. The Wall Street Journal reported this week that the 76-year-old is concerned he may not be able to match the initial fundraising numbers of fellow 2020 candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and former Rep. Beto O’Rouke (D-TX), who raised $5.9 million and $6.1 million, respectively.
A loser choosing a loser for a running mate – perfect couple! He’s just doing this to appease her and get the women’s and black vote. What a fake, phony fraud. Just what we need after they lose in 2020- the black version of Hillary who cannot accept defeat. Joe, Joe, Joe – talk about pandering.
Robert (Beto) O’Rourke is doing the same thing with picking a woman VP!!! , Democrats still have the mentality that blacks are gullible, stupid, moron and uneducated , that, just giving them a free cell phone, free snacks and free rides here and there, the black community will be so happy to vote for them. They are the true racists.
A spokesman for Joe Biden waited for the cover of the Mueller report release to the Justice Department to shoot down a trial balloon floated on Thursday that Biden was considering immediately naming failed Georgia governor candidate Stacey Abrams as his vice president should he decide to run for president. A spokeswoman for Abrams followed with a concurrent denial. However on Thursday Biden’s office declined to comment while an Abrams spox said about the Biden report that Abrams “continues to keep all options on the table for 2020 and beyond”.
Close advisers to former Vice President Joe Biden are debating the idea of packaging his presidential campaign announcement with a pledge to choose Stacey Abrams as his vice president.
Why it matters: The popular Georgia Democrat, who at age 45 is 31 years younger than Biden, would bring diversity and excitement to the ticket — showing voters, in the words of a close source, that Biden “isn’t just another old white guy.”
…Biden’s office declined to comment.”
Later Thursday Axios reported Abrams was open to the idea, “Stacey Abrams’ spokeswoman says Abrams “continues to keep all options on the table for 2020 and beyond” following an Axios scoop that Joe Biden is considering naming her his running mate at the same time he announces his bid for president”
Biden is also known for his famous gaffes. Such gaffes as “You can’t walk into a 7-11 without hearing an Indian accent” or when he spoke to a black congregation and said about Republicans, “Their going to put you all back in chains.” If a Republican said those things they would be excoriated to no end, but when Biden says them they just laugh and say, “That’s just Joe being Joe.” The hypocrisy abounds as always with Dems.
Appearing Monday evening on the Fox News Channel, radio personality Glenn Beck told host Sean Hannity that “we are officially at the end of the country as we know it” if the Republican Party fails to win the 2020 election.
As part of their nearly 10-minute interview, Beck explained how he believes various radical groups are plotting together to “destabilize” the West, warning that the plan is already in motion.
“I said what was coming and the last few steps were that the radicals, the anarchists, the Islamists, the socialists would all gather together, they would not be working together, plotting together, but they would see the opportunity and they would all come together and work to destabilize Europe and America,” Beck told his former colleague “And that is exactly what is happening.”
Beck then warned the U.S. will cease to exist in its current form if the Democrats win in 2020 — and “may not survive,” even if President Donald Trump is re-elected. “If the Republicans don’t win in this next election, I think we are officially at the end of the country as we know it,” he said. “We may not survive even if we win, but we definitely don’t if the Republicans lose with Donald Trump.”
Yes, 2020 is going to be an election to watch closely for sure whether it’s Biden or whoever else decides to run against Trump.Wake up Right! Subscribe to our Morning Briefing and get the news delivered to your inbox before breakfast!
