Trump vs Biden, the ground gets warmer as the election campaign enters the final stage



Trump vs Biden

The US presidential election candidates, Donald Trump and Joe Biden have been continuously taking a dig at each other in order to mobilize voters. Their campaign gets more offensive and borderline insulting as both enter the last stretch of the race. Trump on multiple occasions have referred to his contender and former Vice President as ‘stupid’ and “Sleepy Joe.” While Biden slams Trump’s for the handling of the pandemic and his recent controversial statement wherein it’s alleged that Trump referred to US soldiers as “suckers” and “losers”. While referring to his son, Beau Biden, who served in Iraq and died of brain cancer in 2015, he said: “Beau wasn’t a loser or a sucker. … He served with heroes.”

Trump calls the statement “a hoax” and refused to admit having said it. In order to invalidate the controversy, Trump said, “There’s nobody that has more respect for not only our military but for people that gave their lives in the military.”

During their presidential campaign on Monday, which was the US Labor Day holiday, Trump focused on economic recovery and the safety of people, while his Democratic opponent, Biden stressed on making this year’s election a report card for the president’s dealing of coronavirus pandemic and the economy. Biden raised suspicion over Trump’s pandemic management and added that he feared Trump would not listen to the scientists and implement a transparent process. Biden said, “He has said so many things that aren’t true I am worried that if we do have a really good vaccine people are going to be reluctant to take it.”

Biden also used the occasion to endorse labor rights and committed to strengthening labor organizations. Biden met union leaders in Harrisburg, the Pennsylvania capital, and spoke virtually with the leader of AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, country’s largest union federation. Biden vowed to be the “strongest labor president” in the US history of the country. He added that he would make corporates legally accountable if they wronged and would increase the minimum wage bar and empower the National Labor Relations Board.

Biden during a virtual event in Pennsylvania said, “Folks have figured out that it’s not the financial wizards of Wall Street that make this country run. It’s you, the essential workers,”

Trump criticized Biden for his extensive labor commitments and questioned the lack of an economic recovery plan in his election campaign. At a White House news conference on Monday, Trump said, “Biden’s plan for the China virus is to shut down the entire U.S. economy. He’d be laying off tens of millions of workers and causing countless deaths from suicide, substance abuse, depression, heart disease, and other very serious illnesses.”

Trump added, “Biden and his very liberal running mate (Kamala Harris), the most liberal person in Congress by the way – is not a competent person, in my opinion, would destroy this country and would destroy this economy.”

With less than 60 days left to go until the Nov. 3 elections, opinion polls suggested that both the candidates were giving each other a tough fight as the gap was significantly narrowing down.
