President Donald Trump on Thursday told a crowd of supporters that Joe Biden “wasn’t born” in his birthplace of Scranton, Pennsylvania.
“You know, he left like 70 years ago,” Trump told supporters at a campaign rally just hours before the new Democratic presidential nominee gives his formal address.
“He wasn’t born — I view it differently. He’d say he was born here,” Trump said.
“But he left when he was like 8, 9 or 10. So he left 68 years ago, he left. Long time ago. So I view it differently. He wasn’t born here. He abandoned Scranton!” Trump added.
Trump birthers Biden in a speech near his hometown of Scranton.
