President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are set to square off in “the most important election of our lifetimes” here in just under four months, and the gloves appear ready to come off.
Last week, the pair squabbled over each other’s mental health with Biden proclaiming that he couldn’t wait to compare wits with the President, and Trump firing back about a “cognitive test” that his doctors said that he aced.
This week, it’s all about politics, and just how far left the supposed “centrist” Joe Biden is moving in that direction.
President Trump veered off-script Tuesday after announcing new legislation against China to attack presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for his recent policy proposals – accusing Biden of aligning his campaign with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive leaders.
In comments similar to those made at campaign rallies, Trump laid into his Democratic rival for his policy proposal on immigration, criminal justice reform and climate change among other issues.
“Biden has gone radical left,” Trump said in the Rose Garden as he maligned the proposals laid out by the Biden campaign over the last week. “There’s never been a time when two candidates were so different.”
These comments come after Biden’s team unveiled a $2T plan to refocus the national effort to move toward clean energy, and after the presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee suggested that the Commander in Chief was unwilling to take climate change seriously.
