2020 Democratic favorite Joe Biden is making claims that even he can’t explain.
While on “Good Morning America,” Biden was asked by host Robin Roberts how would he be better for workers than President Trump. That question seemed to really stump the former vice president.
“What would you say to the Trump voter, the Trump supporter who looks at the economy and sees very strong numbers?” Robert inquired.
Biden didn’t seem to have any clear cut answer and instead tried to deflect the question with a series of his own.
“Well, what I’d say is did you get any benefit from the tax cut? Have your wages really gone up that you think you deserve? Do your employers treat you with any more respect and dignity than they did before? What’s the story? Ask these folks. Ask the folks in this state. I know this state pretty well and the fact of the matter is they’re not getting their fair share. The American people, the people who built this country, are ordinary Americans who have done extraordinary things from neighborhoods like we come from and this president does not show a great deal of respect and he continues to divide the country.”
However Roberts was skeptical of the non-answer and pointed out that Trump actually has improved the economy, something that can’t be ignored.
“Is it hard to get the message across when people look at their bottom line and it’s better than it was two, four years ago?” she pressed.
Again Biden seemed to not understand the issue and gave an answer that somehow implied that Donald Trump was responsible for the way employers treat their employees.
“But the bottom line for the vast majority of working class and middle-class people is not significantly better. It’s not significantly better. And, they know they’re not being treated very well. This is about restoring the dignity, the dignity of work and it’s not happening right now,” Biden said.
If Biden wants to shake the image he has of not being all their then he better start preparing himself to answer the real questions that will come up in the 2020 election.
