Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden made an odd statement on Thursday while campaigning in Iowa, telling a group of supporters “we choose truth over facts.”
Biden, 76, was presumably referring to the Democrat Party when he told the audience: “We choose science over fiction; we choose truth over facts.”
Biden’s statement led to numerous accounts tweeting out the hashtag “TruthOverFacts” and some even mockingly suggested that it should be his new campaign slogan.
Biden, who is currently the frontrunner for the Democrat nomination, has made a number of head-scratching remarks that do not make sense.
Earlier this year, Biden mocked the notion that China is a threat and a competitor to the United States: “China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man…they can’t even figure out how to deal with the fact that they have this great division between the China Sea and the mountains in the east, I mean in the west.”
Biden continued “they can’t figure out how they’re going to deal with the corruption that exists within the system. I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what, they’re not, they’re not competition for us.”
Most experts and government officials have said that China is the greatest threat to the U.S and it’s widely accepted that China is the greatest economic competitor the U.S.
