Biden’s Labor Day speech in Philadelphia was completely focused on one man’s presidency – and it wasn’t Joe’s! Here are all the accusations made by Biden on the former president.
Biden vs. Trump Saga Continues
In a passionate address to the Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 19 in Philadelphia, President Joe Biden launched a scathing attack on his political rival, though he never explicitly mentioned Donald Trump by name.
Turning Things Around
Biden rallied the crowd, declaring, “We’re turning things around because of you,” hinting at the mess that his predecessor made before him.
Taking Jobs From China to America
Biden accused the former president of sending jobs to China, emphasizing his own efforts to bring jobs back to the United States, “When the last guy was here, you were shipping jobs to China. Now we’re bringing jobs home from China.”
Pensions and Assistance
The president also claimed credit for helping save millions of pensions with the support of the American workforce, “When the last guy was here, your pensions were at risk. We helped save millions of pensions with your help.”
From Different Perspectives
Biden took a jab at Trump’s lavish lifestyle, stating, “When the last guy was here, he looked at the world from Park Avenue. I look at it from Scranton, Pennsylvania. I look at it from Claymont, Delaware.”
Emphasizing his middle-class roots, Biden proudly declared, “All my time in public life, I’ve been referred to as ‘Middle-class Joe.’ That’s who I am, and it means you work like hell.”
Job Creation Comparison
Biden criticized the previous president for leaving office with fewer jobs in America than when he took office, comparing it to Herbert Hoover’s presidency during the Great Depression.
A Lack of Building
The president also questioned Trump’s legacy: “The guy who held this job before me was just one of two presidents in history who didn’t build a damn thing.”
Tensions With the UAW
Biden addressed the rising tensions with the United Auto Workers (UAW) union, as they demanded a pay raise, shorter workweek, and the return of traditional pensions from major automakers.
Contract Expiry Looming
As the contract between UAW and the automakers neared its September 14th expiration, Biden expressed optimism, saying, “I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
Biden reminded the audience that the UAW had endorsed him in the 2020 election but had yet to do so for the upcoming 2024 election,
Legal Troubles for Trump
The president’s remarks came in the wake of allegations made by New York Attorney General Letitia James, who accused Trump of inflating his net worth fraudulently.
Financial Fraud During Presidency
James claimed that Trump inflated his net worth by as much as $2.2 billion in one year and hundreds of millions over a decade.
Lawsuit and Trial
The New York Attorney General’s office filed a lawsuit against Trump and the Trump Organization, with the trial scheduled to commence on October 2nd.
A Case of Documents
James emphasized, “This is a documents case, and the documents leave no shred of doubt” regarding the alleged financial misrepresentations.
Biden’s speech stirred the crowd and highlighted the ongoing political and legal battles between him and his predecessor.
The ongoing feud between Biden and Trump is taking center stage in the lead-up to the 2024 election.
