Biden’s team got their feelings hurt when President Trump decimated Biden’s plan at the White House during an event in the Rose Garden.
The drubbing was so bad that Biden spokeswoman Kate Bedingfield was forced to insult the President instead of rebuffing his criticism stating the President sees “his re-election slipping away.”
“The American taxpayer should be reimbursed for the abuse of funds this spectacle represented,” Bedingfield wrote in a statement.
“Today’s statement that was ostensibly supposed to be about China, but there was one topic that President Trump couldn’t seem to get off his mind: Joe Biden, whose name the President invoked nearly 30 times,” Bedingfield continued. “The whole sad affair says more about Donald Trump than he said about any particular topic.”
There is no law that prohibits the President from attacking his political opponents running for the office of the Presidency.
During his speech the President hammered Biden over his relationship with China:
Joe Biden’s entire career has been a gift to the Chinese Communist Party and to the calamity of — of errors that they’ve made. They made so many errors. And it’s been devastating for the American worker. China has taken out hundreds of billions of dollars a year from our country.
He then attacked the former Vice President over his policy that took jobs away from Americans and sent them overseas:
America lost nearly 10,000 factories while Joe Biden was Vice President. Think of that: 10,000 factories. He wrote something today, and he made a statement today that I wrote down. It’s pretty accurate.
So Biden was here for 47 years. Eight years — the last eight years, not long ago — as Vice President, he said, “One in five miles of our highways are still in poor condition.” Well, we’re doing a good job in highways, but why didn’t he fix them three years ago? Why didn’t he fix them?
“Tens of thousands of bridges are in disrepair and on the verge of collapse.” Well, it’s probably not a right number, but we have bridges that should have been fixed. Why didn’t he fix them? He was there for eight years with President Obama. Why didn’t they fix them? Tens of thousands of bridges. This is what he wrote: “High-speed broadband. We want high-speed…” Well why didn’t he get it? Three years ago — it’s not a long time.
The President continued to whittle away at Joe Biden and the best they could do was complain he did it in the White House. Biden’s record is a problem and keeping him in the basement isn’t going to make it go away.
