Former US Vice President Joe Biden slammed President Donald Trump for putting Americans in a “horrible situation” as the Democratic frontrunner faced off against his main presidential rival who braced for a fiery debate over their competing visions for the nation.
Joe Biden said, “Look, Donald Trump put us in a horrible situation,”
“We do have enormous income inequality,” he added.
Biden is all set to take on Trump as his party’s candidate in the November 2020 presidential election.
Other candidates have also turned against Donald Trump on taxes, health care and income inequality, while an early debate also addressed whether the party grounded in capitalism should embrace a shift towards more liberal politics and government.
With so many potential challengers to Trump, the party needed to place the top 20 candidates into debates on two nights in southern Florida, which is expected to be a key swing in the next year’s election.
Shortly before taking the stage, Biden released a series of policy statements as well as direct attacks on Trump on Twitter.
Joe Biden is the clear leader with 32 per cent support in polling, compared to Bernie Sanders at 17 per cent, Kamla Harris with seven and Buttigieg at 6.6 per cent.
The 2020 United States presidential election, scheduled for November 3, 2020, will be the 59th quadrennial US presidential election.
