Trump Gleefully Slams Biden for Backtracking on NAFTA at Michigan Rally

President Trump jeered at Biden’s admission that NAFTA was “a mistake” during an interview with CNN on Wednesday.

At his Michigan rally, the President told a crowd in Freeland, MI that Biden “said he made a mistake, he doesn’t know what’s going on. They were a little surprised to hear that, they gave him a few chances.”

Trump cited the Democratic nominee’s interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper when Biden conceded that the President’s US-Mexico-Canada agreement is superior to the North American Free Trade Agreement.  

“It is better than NAFTA,” Biden admitted, then pivoted into an accusation. “But look at what the overall trade policy has been, even with NAFTA? We now have this gigantic deficit in trade with Mexico. Not because NAFTA wasn’t made better, because overall trade policy and how he deals with it made everything worse.”

Trump cracked a joke at the response. “I have the distinct pleasure of running against the worst presidential candidate in presidential politics. Can you imagine if I lost to him?”

The President continued by slamming the former VP for “offshoring Michigan’s jobs, outsourcing Michigan’s factories, throwing open your borders, dragging us into endless foreign wars, and surrendering our children’s future to China.”

One day earlier, Biden also held a rally in Michigan, where he blamed Bush’s White House for NAFTA’s failure, despite voting for the agreement. “Number one, the Bush administration did not keep a commitment on NAFTA, that’s number one.”

Biden also claimed that he, not the President, is responsible for bringing jobs to the auto industry. “I was in charge of the recovery act which brought back hundreds and thousands of thousands of jobs brought back here, they were made out of the proposal that Barack and I put together.”  

Trump’s response was effectively brutal. “Yesterday, Joe Biden was here in Michigan lying about his lifetime of cold-hearted globalist betrayals,” he stated. “You better vote for me, Michigan, I gave you so many auto plants.”

No matter how much Trump bad mouths Joe Biden, the 2020 Election is not the election of a mentally deficient male Democrat. It is the election for the future of our nation. It is the election for Socialism in America. It is the election to stop Political Correctness and the demand of US Citizens to return to Rule of Law to govern the nation. Without our US Constitution and it’s Rule of Law we are a divided nation. Accepting the concept of Individual Freedoms or accepting that the only freedoms citizen should have is decided by the Political Elite?. We can not sugar coat this reality claiming Joe Biden is a honorable man and would be fair and just President. We do not need a Uncle Joe President, we need a President who actually loves his nation and supports the US Citizens by being US Constitutional Correct. Have we heard our US Constitution mentioned much during the 2016 Election and the coming 2020 Election? The Liberal Left has moves so far Left that our US Constitution is no longer a talking point necessary to win a election. I have followed the election of all Presidents since John F. Kennedy and the US Constitution was always a taking point for getting elected until the Election of Barrack Obama. The talking point is now Political Correctness. Sadly, “The right thing to do” can not be found in our US Constitution. Under our US Constitution “The right thing to do” must be determined by Rule of Law using our Legislative branches of government. This means Mob Rule is UNACCEPTABLE.

Yes……DJT had fun with yet another Hidin Biden boo-boo! There will be many more to come, stand by!
The Biden/Harris clown show……..Biden can’t keep his head on straight and his brain functioning while Harris exercises her talent of being queen of mean and angry! She should know that didn’t work for HRC and it won’t work for her! Both, Biden and Harris, are masters of the “flip-flop…flip-flop…flip-flop!”
CANCEL THE CANCEL CULTURE!

So sad, so so sad. Joe’s having difficulty finding anything to criticize about the President, but don’t worry the democrats are pulling out all the stops…they’re letting Bernie out of the Box.

Biden is sort of campaigning, finally. He finally hit on a plan that appeals to him. He’s now promising to do many of the same things that Trump has already done or is continuing to do. Since Trump has done so many things that benefit the nation, how can Biden lose, by plagiarizing Trump now? It has usually worked just fine before.

Regardless of whether or not you like either candidate, the choice was never easier. If you want the USA to resemble Venezuela, vote for Biden. If you want the American economy and freedoms to be even better than it was before COVID-19, vote for Trump.
