President Trump hits back at Joe Biden on Saturday morning, calling the former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate a “reclamation project” and accusing him of deserting the U.S. military, law enforcement and health care, who won’t win in 2020.
Trump tweeted Saturday morning that “some things are just not salvageable,” before criticizing former President Obama for his administration’s trade policy toward China and for the deficits and debt it created.
“Joe Biden is a reclamation project. Some things are just not salvageable,” Trump tweeted.
“China and other countries that ripped us off for years are begging for him. He deserted our military, our law enforcement and our healthcare. Added more debt than all other Presidents combined. Won’t win!” he added.
The president has attacked Biden frequently since the former vice president officially announced his bid for the presidency earlier this year, often resorting to derisive nicknames such as “Sleepy Joe.”
Biden, meanwhile, has characterized Trump as a schoolyard bully, telling CNN this week that he relished the chance to go toe-to-toe with the president on the debate stage.
“He’s the bully that I knew my whole life. He’s the bully that I’ve always stood up to. He’s the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid and had a stutter, and I’d smack him in the mouth,” Biden told CNN in an interview that aired Friday.
