Former Vice President Biden, a potential 2020 presidential candidate, slammed President Trump and the Republican Party on Thursday, saying that they have abandoned American values for “phony populism” and “fake nationalism.”
“This is not your father’s Republican Party,” Biden said at the Democratic party’s New York state convention on Long Island, according to the Associated Press.
“They are not who we are. They are not who America is. What they are doing is sending a vision of America around the world that is distorted. That is damaging. That is hurting us … this phony populism, this fake nationalism. … It’s time to say ‘no more.’ ”
This isn’t the first time that Biden has criticized Trump since he took office. In March, Biden said that he would have “beat the hell out” of him if they had gone to high school together.
“A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,'” Biden said, referring to the “Access Hollywood” tape.
Trump responded in a tweet, saying “Biden would would go down fast and hard, crying all the way.”
