Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden doubted the memory of people who thought like they were better off economically under President Trump than under former President Obama — saying that such individuals “probably shouldn’t” back him.
Speaking during an interview with local WKRC station in Cincinnati on Monday, the 2020 Democrat made statements after being asked about the newly published Gallup survey, which showed that 56 percent of respondents thought that their financial condition had changed under President Trump’s presidency.
Biden was asked that some 56 percent of the electorate, who liked President Trump’s economic policy, should vote Democrat instead.
“Well if they think that, they probably shouldn’t,” the former vice president quipped before going on to incorrectly restate the poll’s findings while asking the news anchor a question.
“They think — 54 percent of the American people believe they’re better off economically today than they were under our administration? Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly,” Biden continued in his rebuke.
The hopeful Democratic President went on to slam his 2020 opponent President Trump, before urging all of their fans to get out and vote.
“And in addition to that, we have a president who doesn’t share the values of most Americans. He’s not very honest with people. He is flouting the conventions relative to public safety in terms of, even now, not wearing a mask, a guy who has been a super spreader. But look, whatever they believe they should go out and vote. People should vote. Period.”
The economy was a central message for the Trump 2020 campaign, which highlighted the economic successes of the commander-in – chief as a prime justification for re-election.
During the debate between Vice President Pence and Vice President candidate Kamala Harris last Wednesday, he described the American economic comeback as “on the ballot.”
Pence responded to Harris’ claim that the Biden administration would repeal Trump’s tax cuts on the first day.
“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris want to raise taxes, they want to bury our economy under a $2 trillion Green New Deal. Joe Biden says Democracy is on the ballot, make no mistake about it, the American economy, the American comeback is on the ballot,” he argued.
Biden repeats gaffe that he’s running ‘for the Senate,’ appears to not remember Mitt Romney’s name
Joe Biden raised eyebrows yet again on Monday for remarks he made on the campaign trail.
While briefly taking questions from reporters en route to a campaign event in Ohio, Biden was asked if Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s faith should be “considered” during her confirmation to the Supreme Court, something the Democratic nominee flatly rejected.
However, as part of his explanation, he recalled a time when he “got in trouble” regarding the questioning of someone’s faith.
“You may remember, I got in trouble when we were running against the senator who was a Mormon, the governor, OK? And I took him on,” Biden said. “No one’s faith should be questioned.”
