Joe Biden is the savior that will deliver us from the "existential threat" of President Trump, he claims in a prepared speech he will give on Tuesday evening in the swing state of Iowa.
According to Fox News, the Democratic frontrunner offered a glimpse of what's to come in 2020 should he go head-to-head with Trump, which will undoubtedly be a bloody knuckle fight to the death (politically speaking).
"I believe Trump is an existential threat to America," Biden says in the prepared remarks released by his campaign. “Everywhere you turn, Trump is tearing down the guardrails of democracy.”
The speech reportedly mentions Trump by name as many as 40 times, attacking the president on a range of policies, including his trade deals with China.
"We are in a competition with China. We need to get tough with China. They are a serious challenge to us, and in some areas a real threat. And every single step that Donald Trump is taking is only exacerbating the challenge," the speech claims. "While Trump is tweeting, China is making massive investments in technologies of the future. While Trump is name-calling, China is building roads, bridges, and high-speed rail. While Trump is pursuing a damaging and erratic trade war, without any real strategy, China is positioning itself to lead the world in renewable energy. While Trump is attacking our friends, China is pressing its advantage all over the world. So you bet I’m worried about China ― if we keep following Trump’s path."
Of course, Biden is basically playing the only card in his deck: bash Trump at every turn. In the same speech, he also plays the card that President Trump defends neo-Nazis. The only actual proposal he makes is to have a "fairer tax code."
"When I’m president we’re going to have a fairer tax code," the speech says. "We’re going to get rid of hundreds of billions of dollars in tax loopholes that have no economic or societal rationale,” he plans to say. “We’re going to build an economy that doesn’t just reward wealth; we’re going to build an economy that rewards work. We’re going to build an economy that works for everyone."
Since the news of Biden's proposed speech in Davenport went public, President Trump issued a blistering counter-attack, calling the former vice president "the weakest mentally," noting that his speech has a bizarre obsession with him.
"It looks like he’s failing, it looks like his friends from the left are going to overtake him very soon,” Trump said. "When a man has to mention my name 76 times in his speech, that means he’s in trouble. He’s a different guy. He acts different than he used to. He looks different than he used to."
“I’d rather run against, I think, Biden than anybody," Trump added. "I think he’s the weakest mentally and I think Joe is weak mentally. The others have much more energy."
The former vice president's Iowa speech comes as he has slowly been slipping in the polls as opponents begin to surge. Biden has increasingly come across as an unprincipled man that will say anything to get a vote, such as when he reversed his position on taxpayer-funded abortion in the span of one week simply because leftist extremists were attacking him.
