Trump criticizes Biden in Rose Garden

Trump criticizes Biden in Rose Garden
President Trump deviated from the written text on Tuesday after announcing new legislation against China to attack presumed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for his latest political proposals - accusing Biden of aligning his campaign with Senator Vermont Bernie Sanders, New York state lawmaker Alexandria-Ocassio-Cortez and other progressive leaders.

In comments similar to those made on campaign rallies, Trump put his Democratic rival on his political proposal on immigration, criminal justice reform, and climate change, among other issues.

"Biden went to the radical left," Trump said in Rose Garden, as he offended the proposals put forward by the Biden campaign last week. "There was no time when two of the candidates were very different."

Biden's campaign later responded to Trump's comments, saying: "Today's statement was ostensibly to be about China, but there was one issue that President Trump does not seem to disagree with: Joe Biden, whose president has spoken nearly 30 times. The whole sad case about Donald Trump more than he said on any particular topic. "

"What we heard in the rose garden today was not at all president. He was a politician who saw that his re-election got away with him, and he was angry that his failed response to the coronary pandemic had deprived him of the campaign events he so eagerly desired."

"The US taxpayer must be compensated for the misuse of the funds that this scene represents," the campaign said, adding that "the real leader" - referring to Biden - spoke earlier in Wilmington. "He has presented the American people with a positive and inspiring vision for our future as we do not have to choose between facing our existential climate crisis and creating millions of well-paying union jobs at the same time."

Trump's comments come hours after Biden released a $ 2 trillion plan on Tuesday to boost investment in clean energy and halt all climate-damaging emissions from U.S. power plants by 2035.

Biden told reporters when Donald Trump thinks about climate change, the only word he can muster is “a hoax. When I think about climate change, what I think about is jobs.”

The climate package added to a series of Biden's detailed policy proposals, including a $ 700 billion plan unveiled last week that would increase government purchase of U.S. goods and invest in new research and development to frame a contradiction with Trump, who has struggled. Clarify a vision for a second term in the White House.

Biden's proposal on Tuesday was not as strong as some measures in the new green deal, a sweeping proposal by progressives in Congress calling for net greenhouse gas emissions across the economy by 2030.

On Tuesday, Trump also continued to describe Biden as "weak" in his stance toward China.

"So Joe Biden and President Obama freely allowed China to plunder our factories, plunder our societies, and steal our most valuable secrets," Trump said.

Trump added that Biden's entire career in politics was "a gift to the Communist Party of China."

Relations between the United States and China are declining. And since the two countries signed the first phase of a trade agreement, the talks are now stalled with almost no hope of resuming them before the November elections.

Trump's press conference began as an announcement of his signature of legislation and an executive order that he said would hold China accountable for its repressive actions against the Hong Kong people.

Legislation and order are part of the Trump administration's attack on China because of what he has described as unfair treatment by the rising Asian superpower, which has hidden details about the virus being transmitted from person to person.

Lawmakers from both parties urged Trump to take strong measures in response to China's new national security law that undermines the "one country, two systems" framework by which Britain handed Hong Kong over to China in 1997. Hong Kong is a special administrative region within China and has its own systems of government and economy .
