Trump is not known to pull punches with his opponents, and Joe Biden is finding that out the hard way.
Daily Mail reports:
“The US President disparaged Biden Tuesday in an interview that’s due to air as part of an hour-long program on ABC News. ‘He has recalibrated on everything… Everything he’s said he’s taken back two weeks later because he’s getting slammed by the left. And he stuck with this stuff. He’s really stuck with this.'”
These comments stemmed from Biden switching his positions on the Hyde Amendment.
The Washington Post reports:
“One day last week, Joe Biden reaffirmed his support for the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the federal funding of most abortions. A day later, the presidential candidate and former vice president reversed himself, giving as a reason the recent spate of draconian antiabortion laws enacted in several states. Surely, however, Biden was pushed by Democratic Party activists. At this rate, he’ll be a socialist by Labor Day.”
Joe Biden seems to be flapping in the wind right now. This reversal calls into question all of his positions as he has been a supporter of the Hyde amendment for some time, but it seems activists are the ones calling the shots for Biden.
Trump seeing Biden as his most likely adversary in 2020, didn’t hesitate to strike. Politicians should be aware that the public will hold them accountable for flip-flopping, and would do well to avoid it.
