Joe Biden rides Obama nostalgia in 2020 bid

Did Trump already take Biden's bait Trump says union members 'love' him, mocks Biden
Patty Aguilar | 01 May, 2019, 05:52

Former Congressman Beto O'Rourke of Texas questioned Biden's backing from big-money outside political groups, and Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA has noted Biden's work "on the side of the credit card companies".

2020 candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden responded today to President Donald Trump defending his "perfect" reaction to Charlottesville.

Tuesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe", host Joe Scarborough took a jab at President Donald Trump by saying his lack of a poker face showed that he was "really scared" of former Vice President Joe Biden, who is now a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. "It's similar to what we had in 2008 when we had Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton at the time", Bret Nilles, chair of Linn County Democrats, said.

Biden led a few nationwide polls even before launching his official campaign. "In a big field, there will be some early skirmishes as people position themselves". "We have to honor that".

IAFF president Harold Schaitberger said, "Biden through civility and decency will enhance the political discourse that our country needs right now".

White House planning to designate Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organisation
The Trump administration is reportedly looking to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terror organization. El-Sisi led a coup in 2013 that challenged and removed former president Mohamed Morsi from power.

The news came after a poll of voters in the historically red state of Texas revealed on Monday that President Donald Trump (49 percent) and Barack Obama's former second-in-command are nearly equal in a hypothetical match-up, with Biden just ahead on 50 percent.

"I strongly opposed the Trans-Pacific Partnership; he supported it.

His rollout was quite successful", Stirewalt said during an appearance on "America's Newsroom". "It was built by the great American middle class", Biden told the union crowd at Teamsters Local #246 venue.

Biden didn't get into the specifics of policy in his first rally as a presidential candidate, but he did lay out the beginnings of a platform for his campaign. Biden's campaign is based on the premise that he's the candidate best able to connect with voters in those areas - and his rhetoric on Monday was a direct appeal to them.

"Beto O'Rourke will need to answer why he did not lead on climate change in Congress and why he voted on the side of oil companies to open up offshore drilling", he said in a statement on Monday. She said the party is not concerned about the number of Democrats. Minimum wage, overtime pay, the 40-hour week: "they exist for all of us because unions fought for those rights". "Those who see themselves as more viable contenders can have some caution about picking a fight too early".
