Former Vice President Joe Biden came out swinging at Donald Trump and appealed to middle-class voters at the Democratic debate.
iden said, “Donald Trump thinks Wall Street built America. Ordinary middle-class Americans built America. My dad had an expression. Joe, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It’s about dignity and respect and looking your kid in the eye and seeing that everything is going to be okay. Too many people at the middle class and fall had the bottom I am saying we have to be straight forward. We have to make sure we understand that the return of dignity to the middle class, they have to have insurance that is cover and they can afford it. They have to make sure we have a situation where there is continuing education and they are able to pay for it and they center have to make sure they breathe air that is clean and they have water that they can drink. Look, Donald Trump put us in a horrible situation. We do have enormous income inequality. The one thing I agree on is we can make massive cuts in the $1.6 billion in tax loopholes and I would be going about eliminating Donald Trump’s tax cut for the wealthy.”

Joe Biden has one mission in this debate, and that is to cement the idea that he can beat Donald Trump in November. Biden is coming straight out of the gate and going straight for Donald and those white working class voters.
Biden’s first answer sure sounded like a general election message, and it is sure to get under the skin of Trump.
