Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden questioned the memory of voters who felt better placed economically under President Trump than under former President Obama. He said these people “probably shouldn’t support” him.
During an interview with local broadcaster WKRC in Cincinnati on Monday, the 2020 Democrat commented on a recent Gallup poll that found that 56 percent of voters believed their financial situation would change under the president’s administration Trump have improved.
Biden was asked why that 56 percent of voters, who liked President Trump for his economic policies, should vote for Democrats instead.
“Well, if that̵
“You think – 54 percent of Americans believe that they are better off economically today than they were under our administration?” Well, to be honest, her memory is not very good, ”Biden continued with his reprimand.
The Democratic president’s hope slammed his 2020 rival Trump before encouraging both supporters to get out and vote.
“We also have a president who doesn’t share the values of most Americans. He’s not very honest with people. He’s breaking public safety conventions by not wearing a mask himself, a guy who was a super spreader. But look, whatever they think they should go out and vote. People should choose. Period.”
The economy was a key message for the Trump 2020 campaign, which touted the commander in chief’s economic achievements as the main argument for re-election.
During Vice President Pence’s debate with Vice-President Kamala Harris last Wednesday, he described America’s economic comeback as “on the ballot”.
Pence responded to Harris’ claim that a Biden administration would lift Trump’s tax cuts on day one.
“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, American economy, American comeback is on the ballot, ”he argued.
