President Donald Trump hit back at political rival Joe Biden on Fox News Friday. The president bashed Democratic presidential front runner Biden to host Harris Faulkner.
“Look, Joe’s not all there, everybody knows it and it’s sad when you look at it and you see it, you see it for yourself,” Trump said. “He’s created his own sanctuary city in that basement, wherever he is, and he doesn’t come out.” And he told, “Certainly, if I don’t win, I don’t win. I’ll go on and do other do other things. I think it would be a very be a very sad thing for our country.”
In an interview on “The Daily Show,” Biden warned Trump could “try to steal this election” by attempting to suppress votes, pointing to the president’s fervent opposition to mail-in voting and his unfounded allegations that widespread mail-in voting was ripe with fraud.
Host Trevor Noah then asked the vice president if he’d given any consideration to what would happen if Trump refused to leave office at the end of his term, to which Biden replied that he had.
“I was so damn proud to hear that four chiefs of staff coming out and ripping the skin off of Trump, and you have so many rank-and-file military personnel saying, ‘Whoa we’re not a military state, this is not who we are,” Biden expressed. “I promise you, I am absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch,” he announced.
As Politico reported:
Biden’s warning comes as recent polling shows the former vice president taking the lead across national polls five months out from the election.
Trump trolls his critics on the issue, joking at campaign rallies and on various occasions about extending his presidency past the constitutional limit of two terms. In addition to the president’s vocal accusations of widespread voter fraud and claims of “rigged” American elections, of which there is no evidence, Trump has sometimes suggested that his supporters might “demand” he remain in office past his second term.
The president played right into Biden’s hands. Trump helped him plant a seed of doubt on winning.
