At his first campaign rally event, former Vice President Joe Biden took the opportunity to speak out against the current administration of President Donald Trump -- and it looked like he had been waiting to say some of these things for quite a while.
The speech, which took place in Pittsburgh, specifically referenced the local region, with Biden proclaiming that it was his main chance to beat Trump in the upcoming 2020 election.
The speech was not entirely focused on Trump but did pay a lot of attention to his policies, especially recent ones.
Biden pointed out that people should unite against Trump and make it known that they understand exactly who he is and what he stands for and that they do not agree with him.
Biden also used the moment to speak about other perceived issues in the country, such as the imbalance of wealth, mainly the intense focus on Wall Street and high-ranking entrepreneurs as a whole.
He pointed out that Americans should unite in the face of attempts to divide them, and reiterated that it was more important than ever for the country to take a stance together against the current issues.
It looks like Biden has moderate support so far, but it remains questionable if he will manage to make any substantial progress in the upcoming Democratic primary.
Many eyes are focused on his campaign, but as he pointed out himself, his support in the Midwest will have to remain strong, and the politician could use some extra backers in this regard if he wants to have a good chance against Trump.
Biden stated: "Quite frankly, folks, if I’m going to be able to beat Donald Trump in 2020, it’s going to happen here. The only thing that can tear America apart is America itself. Everybody knows who Donald Trump is. And I believe — I believe in hope. We have to let them know who we are. We Democrats, we independents who have the same view, have to choose hope over fear, unity over division, and most importantly truth over lies."
He added: "Let me say this simply and clearly, and I mean this,” said Biden, dressed in shirt sleeves without a coat and tie. “The country wasn’t built by Wall Street bankers, CEOs and hedge fund managers. It was built by you. It was built by the great American middle class. Being middle class is not a number. It’s a value set."
Biden is the only Democrat doing well against Trump in the polls right now, can he maintain it, yes or no?
