President Trump On Tuesday afternoon ripped into his Democratic opponent Joe Biden over having gone “radical left.”
The president attacked Biden’s recent policy proposals which cater towards the far-left wing of the Democratic party — aligning with Socialist Democrats Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“Biden has gone radical left,” Trump said in the Rose Garden as he maligned the proposals laid out by the Biden campaign over the last week. “There’s never been a time when two candidates were so different.”
Trump also laid into his Democratic rival for his policy proposal on immigration, criminal justice reform and climate change among other issues.
Trump’s comments come hours after Biden released a $2 trillion plan on Tuesday which calls for dumping money into “clean energy” to supposedly put an end to all climate-damaging emissions from U.S. power plants by 2035.
The climate package added to a series of detailed policy proposals Biden has released, including another $700 billion plan unveiled last week as the barely-there Democrat looks to spend a large chunk of tax-payer dollars on socialist policies.
Biden’s proposal on Tuesday mimics key pieces of the Green New Deal, the widely mocked plan set forth by progressives in Congress that calls for achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the economy by 2030.
“In other words, he wants to install the Green New Deal into our country,” Trump said of the Biden plan.
Trump on Tuesday also continued to point out that Biden was weak on his stance toward China.
“So Joe Biden and President Obama freely allowed China to pillage our factories, plunder our communities and steal our most precious secrets,” Trump said, adding, “I’ve stopped it largely.”
Trump added that Biden’s entire career in politics had been a “gift to the Chinese Communist Party.”
He also ripped Biden’s son Hunter Biden for his discharge from the military and for serving on the board of a China-backed investment firm.
“He was forced to leave, didn’t have a job and all of a sudden he’s making a fortune but nobody talks about that,” Trump said referring to Hunter Biden.
Trump noted that Biden would stop his administration’s limitations on immigration and accepting refugees, and would offer amnesty to illegal immigrants in the country.
“Mass amnesty, everybody gets amnesty,” Trump said about Biden’s future presidency. “Think of that.”
He said that Biden and the Democrats would pursue radical open border policies if he won the presidency.
“They’re going to rip down the wall. It’s hard to get that built, and now it’s almost completed,” Trump said.
Trump’s press conference also served as an announcement that he had signed legislation and an executive order that he said will hold China accountable for its oppressive actions against the people of Hong Kong.
The legislation and order are part of the Trump administration’s offensive against China for the unfair treatment by the rising Asian superpower, which hid details about the human-to-human transition of the coronavirus.
Trump’s action against China in response to their new national security law has bi-partisan support as the national security law clearly erodes the “one country, two systems” framework under which Britain handed Hong Kong over to China in 1997. Hong Kong is considered a special administrative region within China and has its own governing and economic systems.
