Joe Biden’s Rebuttal

Description

Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s plan for winning the presidential election relies on putting together African-American voters of all ages, including younger Black people who are less enthusiastic about him, and white moderates who find President Trump unacceptable.

At last week’s Republican National Convention, the Trump campaign appeared to be sowing discord within that coalition. By framing the response to unrest in cities as binary — you are either for violence or for the police — Republicans seemed to be daring Mr. Biden to challenge young Black voters.

In a speech in Pittsburgh yesterday, Mr. Biden rejected that choice. Instead, he recognized the grievances of peaceful protesters, while denouncing “the senseless violence of looting and burning and destruction of property.”

Today, we examine whether the speech worked — and what it means for the rest of the election campaign.

Guest: Alexander Burns, a national political correspondent for The New York Times.

lol Biden is never going to be president, Trump is too powerful and manly to let this cuck slow Joe become president and turn our GREAT country into a hell scape like Portland, that liberal satan filled hell hole. I hear that there is a mass migration out of Portland because the entire city is on fire, constant looting and antifa breaking into homes and soon headed for the suburbs! Theses antifa terrorists are teaming up with MS13 and the caravan to come take over this country and jail all white straight Christian men, they want to ruin this country so badly and just want chaos! We need to free the children trapped underground and being tortured for their Andrenochrome, once we stop these satanic democrats and remove their Andrenochrome they will all turn frail and just wither away into dust, they are controlled by it! So join trump and Q to expose the truth, these democrats are Satan and Trump is sent from God to save us, he's our inky hope, we need to give up everything to support trump because our culture is on the line, we are proud God fearing Christians and we will not be ignored! we are the loud and proud silent majority. If Biden wins there will be so many more antifa riots and just chaos Biden bring chaos he's an insane old man! Just listen and trust Trump he is the only one who can save us! God bless America #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder #Trump2020 #KeepAmericaGreat #WWG1WGA
