Joe Biden on Monday slammed Donald Trump, saying he is a “toxic presence” and is a threat to the safety of all Americans by encouraging violence in the streets as he continues to mishandle the COVID-19 pandemic.
Biden made the remarks during a trip to the battleground state of Pittsburgh. His remarks appeared to be in response to Trump’s attempts to portray Biden as a candidate who think lawlessness is acceptable.
During his speech, Biden said, “I want to be very clear about all of this: Rioting is not protesting. Looting is not protesting. It’s lawlessness, plain and simple. And those who do it should be prosecuted.” (The Washington Post)
- With just over two months to go, the presidential race is heating up.
- Good on Biden for setting the record straight on his own stance about violent protests.
- Trump does seem to be running his campaign on fear.
