Biden Brings the Fire to Fight in Speech Attacking Trump

Published

on

Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden slammed President Donald Trump Tuesday afternoon in a strong speech, and with it seems to have buried his Republican opponent’s “Sleepy Joe” nickname for him.

Biden slammed Trump in a series of hits about the coronavirus pandemic, reminding voters that as far back as February he has been warning about COVID-19, and detailing the actions that must be taken at the federal level to protect Americans.

In addition to his display of competence on handling pandemics, contrasting himself with Trump, Biden attacked the President directly.

“Trump called himself a wartime president. Now, it seems like our wartime president has surrendered.”

“President Trump failed us.”

And he urged everyone to “wear a mask. Period.”

“We can’t continue half recovering, half getting worse,” Biden said. “We can’t continue half with a plan and half just hoping for the best. We can’t defeat this virus with a piecemeal approach.”

“We don’t need a cheerleader, Mr. President, we need a President, Mr. President,” Biden said blasting Trump for not taking responsibility and blaming others.

“Mr. President this is not about yu, it’s about the health and welfare of the American people,” Biden added, blasting Trump for “midnight tweets,” and saying now is not the time to “wash your hands and walk away from responsibility.”

Bolton: Can’t Be Certain Trump Will Exit the White House if Defeated (Video)

Published

In a new interview former Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton says he “hopes” but can’t be certain President Donald Trump will exit the White House peacefully if he is defeated in November. “I think in the Trump administration you can’t be certain of anything,” he cautioned.

“Do you believe the President will follow the peaceful transfer of power and leave the White House peacefully if he is defeated this year?” The Washington Post’s Robert Costa asked Bolton Tuesday afternoon in an interview that aired live on C-SPAN (video below.)

“Well, I certainly hope so,” Bolton replied, but felt the need to issue a warning too. “I think it’s important for Republicans especially to make that clear. This is something that if we’re not careful, I think carrying the albatross of this administration around our neck any longer than necessary is going to cause great harm to the country for sure but conservatives and republicans as well and the outcome your describing would be absolutely the worst.”

Costa, perhaps surprised, pressed Bolton to clarify.

“Let’s pause there. You said, ‘hope so,’ about the peaceful transfer of power, so you’re not certain.”

“I think in the Trump administration you can’t be certain of anything,” Bolton replied.

Bolton spent nearly 18 months with Trump as his NSA, and has penned a book about his time in the White House. Trump tried to have its release halted. The DOJ is reportedly considering criminal charges against him for allegedly revealing classified information in “The Room Where It Happened.”
