Last week the Trump campaign suspends most of their TV ad spending to “review and fine-tune” their strategy. None of their attacks on Biden were landing and now it appears that they are back to just throwing things at the wall to see what sticks. Trump told a small crowd of supporters on the tarmac at a Cleveland airport on Thursday that Biden, a practicing catholic is “against God” and will “hurt the bible” as part of his “radical left agenda.”
“Take away your guns, take away your Second Amendment. No religion, no anything. Hurt the Bible. Hurt God, he’s against God. He’s against guns. He’s against energy, our kind of energy I don’t think he’s going to do too well in Ohio,” Trump said.
Man of faith
Former VP Biden have often times credited his faith for helping through some personal tragedies such as the deaths of his wife and children.
In contrast, Donald Trump could not name a single bible verse when he was asked to name one or two of his favorite scriptures on the campaign trail in 2015. In the same interview he was asked if he was an “old testament guy or a new testament guy?” Trump’s response was, “probably equal.”
“Joe Biden’s faith is at the core of who he is; he’s lived it with dignity his entire life, and its been a source of strength of comfort in times of hardship,” Biden campaign spokesperson Andrew Bates said in a statement responding to Trump’s comments.
He continued: “Donald Trump is the only president in our history to have tear-gassed peaceful Americans and thrown a priest out of his church just so he could profane it—and a Bible—for his own cynical optics as he sought to tear our nation apart at a moment of crisis and pain.”
This is the latest in a string of attacks that have failed largely because whatever Trump is accusing Biden of doing, he does himself, only much worse.
