In First Campaign Rally, Biden Blasts Trump and Recycles Obama’s Tired ‘Hope’ Messaging

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign is less than a week old. However, he’s already on the campaign trail blasting President Donald J. Trump and recycling former President Barack Obama’s tired “hope” messaging.

At his first campaign rally, held in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Biden, Democrat – Delaware, said, “The only thing that can tear America apart is America itself” according to TheBlaze. Targeting Trump, the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential front runner stated, “Everybody knows who Donald Trump is. And I believe — I believe in hope. We have to let them know who we are. We Democrats, we independents who have the same view have to choose hope over fear, unity over division, and most importantly truth over lies.”

As Obama is still beloved by many on the left, Biden will undoubtedly remind everyone he served as the former President’s Vice President as often as he can.

This will likely be the case even though Obama won’t be endorsing Biden anytime soon.

The former President has stayed silent as the field of Democrats vying for his old job has dramatically increased over the past several months.

He remained silent when Biden entered the race last week.

On April 25, 2019, Biden informed Fox News that he asked Obama not to endorse him. The former Vice President said that “whoever wins this nomination should win it on their own merits.”

Biden’s Deputy Campaign Manager Kate Bedingfield informed left-leaning MSNBC, “He wanted to make the case. He is running in this race because he believes we need to restore the soul of this nation, we need to rebuild the backbone of America, and that we need to unify and come together.”

Many took to social media to mock Biden’s revelation that he asked Obama not to endorse him. Conservative commentator, writer, and lawyer Ben Shapiro tweeted, “Yeah and I rejected that NBA contract because I wanted to show my b-ball skills without having to dominate others.”

Fox News’ Guy Benson tweeted, “lol sure, Joe.”

In a statement, Obama did praise Biden.

But, he didn’t offer an endorsement. Obama spokesperson Katie Hill stated, “President Obama has long said that selecting Joe Biden as his running mate in 2008 was one of the best decisions he ever made.

He relied on the vice president’s knowledge, insight, and judgment throughout both campaigns and the entire presidency.

The two forged a special bond over the last 10 years and remain close today.”

Ben LaBolt, who was the national press secretary on the Obama-Biden re-election, offered his take on Biden running on the coattails of Obama’s legacy.

According to BuzzFeed News, LaBolt said, “President Obama remains beloved by Democrats, and talking about building upon his legacy — from making the economy work for all families to strengthening health care to restoring alliances — should be fertile ground.”

He went on to caution, “Biden certainly has a right to claim that mantle and run on it, but I actually don’t think he’ll be the only one to run on it. Many of the candidates will make a direct appeal to those voters, from Sens. [Cory] Booker and [Kamala] Harris to Mayor Pete.”

While embracing his coveted status as an “Obama-Biden” Democrat by utilizing Obama’s message of “hope,” the former Vice President is also channeling some of Trump’s mainstays from 2016.

TheBlaze reported that “Biden is trying to portray himself as a friend to the working and middle class voters, decrying policies that allegedly benefit the wealthy while leaving everyday Americans behind.”

Always up for a challenge, Trump responded to Biden’s rally in Scranton, Pennsylvania on twitter.

The President said, “I’ll never get the support of Dues Crazy union leadership, those people who rip-off their membership with ridiculously high dues, medical and other expenses while being paid a fortune,” Trump wrote. “But the members love Trump. They look at our record economy, tax & reg cuts, military etc. WIN! The Media (Fake News) is pushing Sleepy Joe hard.”

Continuing, Trump cleverly quipped, “Funny, I’m only here because of Biden & Obama. They didn’t do the job and now you have Trump, who is getting it done—big time!”

Certainly, a Trump and Biden match-up in 2020 would be both interesting and entertaining.

It would also be intriguing to see how enthusiastically Obama would campaign for Biden if he got the Democratic presidential nomination.
