Joe Biden is pointing out something that is running under the surface for Donald Trump’s mind….
Shitcan everything and ANYTHING that has President Obama fingerprints on it….
And having race as a big part of his efforts….
Former vice president Joe Biden accused President Trump on Monday of having undercut progress made during the Obama administration on addressing the root causes of refugees arriving at the U.S. southern border, saying Trump had “replaced sound strategy with hostility and inflammatory rhetoric.”
“The true solution to this challenge can be found in Mexico’s increasing prosperity and El Salvador’s improved security situation, which have both been linked to lower levels of migration,” Biden said in an op-ed published Monday in the Miami Herald. He also accused Trump of using “racist invective to describe anyone south of the Rio Grande.”
The Democratic White House hopeful said that during his tenure under President Barack Obama, he led an effort to “address the root causes that push people to flee, reducing inequality, and expanding economic opportunity in Central America so that people feel safe to stay in their home countries.”
Biden’s op-ed, which also ran in the Miami Herald’s Spanish-language publication, El Nuevo Herald, came after Trump abruptly suspended a threat to deport “millions” of undocumented immigrants starting Sunday, demanding that Democrats and Republicans forge a plan to stanch the record flows of asylum-seeking families.
It was published two days before the kickoff in Miami of the Democratic presidential debates, at which the candidates are certain to seek to sharply contrast their policy prescriptions on immigration with those of Trump…
Two and a half years into his presidency, Donald Trump still has Barack Obama on his mind.
Trump mentioned Obama, his wife and “Obamacare” 23 times in his interview on “Meet the Press” — when he was asked only four direct questions that involved the former president.
And some of those mentions contained outright falsehoods.
Here’s a partial list:
- “You cannot have nuclear weapons [regarding Iran]. And they would have had them with President Obama. He gave them $150 billion.” (In fact, the Iran nuclear deal was forged to keep Iran from nuclear weapons, and the $150 billion wasn’t U.S. money – it was Iran’s money frozen in international financial institutions around the world.)
- “Obama had a lousy economy. It was a dead economy.” (In fact, the state of the economy has been fairly consistent between Obama’s second term and Trump’s first two years in office – with Obama enjoying slightly higher job-creation numbers and Trump with slightly higher GDP numbers. But in no way was the economy “dead” under Obama.)
- “[U]nder President Obama you had separation [of migrant families]. I was the one that ended it.” (In fact, it was Trump’s administration that started this zero-tolerance policy, while there was no similar actual policy by the Obama administration.)
- “I’m about great health care. Obamacare is a disaster. I got rid of the individual mandate.”
Joe Biden even in South Carolina is running against Donald Trump, not other Democrats and it maybe a bit personal for Biden against Trump, who knocking the Obama Presidency is knocking HIM also….
