Clinton and Biden Stump in Scranton
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton appeared today with Vice President Joe Biden in his home town of Scranton, where Biden discussed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his “indifference” to the needs of Americans domestically and abroad.
Biden called Trump “totally, thoroughly unqualified” as well as a “dangerous voice” on American affairs.
He also claimed vehemently that Trump could not satisfy the economy nor the middle class, an important voting bloc in the highly contested state of Pennsylvania in the November election.
Trump and Clinton have both been campaigning heavily in Pennsylvania for the past few months, and both show no signs of letting up in one of the most important swing states, although PA has not voted Republican since 1988.
Clinton is leading in the polls in PA, although her trustworthiness or lack thereof, continues to follow her through the campaign due to her use of a private email server as Secretary of State.
Biden called Clinton “the most qualified person to lead the country,” and claimed, “Hillary Clinton is going to write the next chapter in American history.” He also added that her being the first female president would change the lives of American women and girls.
When Clinton spoke, she called Trump “all over the place” in terms of his foreign policy suggestions, which include plans to potentially send ground troops to fight the Islamic State group, a plan which Clinton considers “off the table.”
She also spoke of her doubts on whether Trump could bring back jobs to blue-collar communities such as Scranton. She has made the case in the past that Trump’s economic policies would only “inject danger into an already unstable world.”
Biden is expected to continue to campaign for Clinton in other states where he is considered popular, such as Michigan, Ohio and Florida.
