Joe Biden used his Labor Day address to create more division and attack his predecessor, Donald Trump, by claiming the real estate mogul “didn’t build a damn thing.”
So, what exactly did you build, Joe?
In a Labor Day rally in Pennsylvania, Biden claimed that infrastructure became a “punchline” under Trump.
“Guess what? The great real estate builder, the last guy here, he didn’t build a damn thing,” said Biden.
“Under my predecessor, ‘Infrastructure Week’ became a punchline. On my watch, infrastructure means a decade, and it’s a headline.”
Biden even accused Trump of exporting jobs to China.
However, Biden’s claim is false because Trump took a firm stance against exporting jobs to foreign countries and even imposed tariffs on Chinese goods.
“When the last guy was here, you were shipping jobs to China. Now we’re bringing jobs home from China,” Biden claimed.
“When the last guy was here, your pensions were at risk. We helped save millions of pensions with your help.”
“When the last guy was here, he looked at the world from Park Avenue,” he added.
“I look at it from Scranton, Pennsylvania. I look at it from Claymont, Delaware. Not a joke.”
If you recall, Biden criticized Trump’s decision to shut down travel from China during the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.
“We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus,” Biden said at the time.
“We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering.”
“He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency,” he said at the time.
However, the Biden campaign claimed Biden criticized President Trump and did not mean travel bans were xenophobic.
