Pittsburgh – 2020 Presidential Election Democratic candidate Joe Biden has criticized President Trump for handling the country’s law and order situation. He was delivering a speech on Monday in Pittsburgh, PA. He has also demanded the prosecution of the criminals involved in rioting and looting.
He has accused Trump of fueling the violence across the nation, which resulted from police brutality and racism.
Biden’s recent speech in Pennsylvania is regarded as his powerful demonstration against rival candidate Trump, where he accused him of not being tough on lawless elements causing violence and looting. He has also criticized Democratic leaders of states where riots are happening.
“I want to make it absolutely clear, so I’m going to be very clear about all of this, rioting is not protesting. Looting is not protesting. Setting fires is not protesting. None of this is protesting. It’s lawlessness, plain and simple. And those who do it should be prosecuted. Violence will not bring change, it will only bring destruction. It’s wrong in every way. It divides instead of unites, destroys businesses, only hurts the working families that serve the community. It makes things worse across the board, not better.“
– Joe Biden’s Pennsylvania Speech
Trump, who is a rival candidate of Biden, has already made clear that he stands for “law and order” in the country, so much so that it appears that he has made it the election’s central theme.
Republicans have denied Biden’s allegations against Trump’s provoking rhetoric. Biden has refuted Republicans’ allegation that he’s surrendered to “left-wing mob.” He asked, “Ask yourself, do I look like a radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters? Really?”
Biden is trying to influence Pennsylvania’s voters, which is considered a crucial swing state, which helped Trump become the president in the 2016 election. This visit to Pennsylvania from Biden was a surprise since he has mostly operated from his home state of Delaware.
Biden’s strategy is to influence the states’ voters that will decide the fate of the election. This week Mike Pence and Donald Trump are visiting Pennsylvania for campaigning. During the speech, Biden has criticized Trump by saying that America is currently unsafe under his leadership. If he can’t maintain law and order, he’s unfit for the position.
He wants the US to be a peaceful country. President Trump is visiting Kenosha, WI, in the wake of shootings and police brutality happened there.
