Former vice president Joe Biden on Monday attacked and blamed President Donald Trump for unable to control the violence accompanied by the mass protests for racial equality this summer in different parts of the country. Biden accused Trump of forfeiting moral leadership in America long ago. The Democratic presidential nominee didn't shy away from dissing the President in his speech at Pittsburgh. He claimed that Trump had lost control of the country, which is now subjected to a series of significant issues like the pandemic, job losses, economic slowdown, racial tensions, and mass violence that were denounced by the President without taking any responsibility.
In his speech, Biden said - "Ask yourself: Do I look like a radical socialist with a soft corner for rioters? Really? Along with millions of Americans, I want a safe America, safe from all the issues, safe from the coronavirus pandemic, safe from crime and looting, safe from bad cops, safe from racial protests. Let me be crystal clear; above all, I want America to be safe from four more years of Donald Trump." The heavy criticism from Biden comes just a week after a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin shot Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old African-American, seven times in the back, who sustained severe injuries in his liver and kidney. This incident sparked violent racial protests in the city similar to the protests after the killing of George Floyd, another black man who was killed in police custody. Additionally, Biden clarified the Republicans' assertions who claimed that country would be in chaos and unrest if Biden wins in November. Biden and his supporters rightly pointed out that the turmoil is presently happening under President Trump's watch.
Biden further questioned the false assertions by Republicans, "What's the proof? The violence they were talking about is presently happening in Donald Trump's America. The images of violence are not from the imagined Joe Biden's America in the future, but they are the images from Donald Trump's America today." Biden was also playful in taking potshots at the President. "Trump keeps telling you if only he were president, all these violent protests wouldn't happen," he chuckled and continued, "But does anyone believe there will be any less violence in America if he is reelected?" Biden condemned the violence with a statement after the Portland shooting. "Violence of every kind by anyone, whether it is by left or right, should be condemned, and I challenge Mr. President to do the same."
