Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has been amplifying his attacks on President Donald Trump with five days to go for Election Day. Biden called out Trump's views of suburbs in his latest television interview. "Donald Trump wouldn't know a suburb unless he took a wrong turn," Biden said during his interview and also attacked the president for his views of the suburbs as outdated. Biden said, "it is not who we are." Biden spoke during an interview on the 60 Minutes show, which was aired on Sunday. President Donald Trump also participated in the same news show but left it abruptly. To reduce the damage caused by Biden's comments, the White House released Trump's interview with Lesley Stahl before the actual schedule.
Speaking to Norah O'Donnell, Biden said - "Trump wouldn't know a suburb unless he took a wrong turn. Go out in the suburbs now. It's not 1950. There's a lot of reasons people are upset. A lot of good reasons. All he needs to do is take that sort of concealed fear out there and say, 'It's because of that guy or because of that woman.' That's not who we are as a country." As per the recent polls, most suburban white women who voted and supported Trump in crucial background states during his 2016 campaign have turned towards Biden this year. Trump made a nasty remark while addressing the suburban voters as part of his campaign. He said - "Suburban women, will you please like me?" Soon after the backlash from Biden and the Democrats, Trump tried to justify his remarks. During the 60 Minutes interview, Trump said he was joking at the Pittsburgh rally.
Biden called out that Trump's view of the suburbs is dangerous to democracy. "We have always gone further and further towards inclusion. This is the first president who's trying to damage the fabric of democracy by shutting it down. We cannot sustain democracy this way. We are so much better than this," Biden said. Vice president Mike Pence and his opponent Senator Kamala Harris were also interviewed. Harris was on the same line echoing Biden's message all through the interview. When asked whether she believes Trump is a racist, Harris said, "Yes I do" and pointed out the instances where she was called names by the president and Trump's role in questioning where President Obama was born. "His first order of business was to implement a Muslim ban. It all speaks for itself," Harris said.
