According to Mediaite, President Joe Biden found himself in a jovial mood at a private fundraiser in Arizona, where he didn’t shy away from taking swipes at his predecessor, ex-President Donald Trump, while also adding a dash of humor to his remarks about another world leader.
However, it was at a campaign reception hosted at the Tucson residence of Roberta and Jim Pederson that Biden let loose. In a segment of his speech, Biden didn’t hold back in criticizing Trump and a segment of the Republican Party, suggesting that a small group of Republicans had a stronghold on the party, especially in the House.
He contrasted his view of the nation, emphasizing that he and Vice President Kamala Harris did not perceive America as a dark, negative, or mean-spirited place, in contrast to what he portrayed as Trump’s perspective.
Biden cited Trump’s statements to his supporters, including the phrase, “I am your retribution,” which he used during his presidential campaign. The president also highlighted Trump’s remarks about a “failing nation” and the idea that the country’s fate hinged on a particular election outcome.
Biden even referenced Trump’s controversial call for the death penalty for General Milley, a highly regarded military leader, due to a disagreement. Later in his speech, Biden switched gears to engage in some sports-themed trash talk when discussing China’s President Xi Jinping. He expressed confidence in America’s ability to handle the challenges posed by China and playfully quipped, “They’re not a patch on our jeans, man,” garnering laughter from the audience.
He recounted asking world leaders if they would trade places with Xi Jinping, emphasizing that none had shown an inclination to do so. Biden underlined that he wasn’t looking for a fight with China but was determined to assert America’s position and not be swayed by their actions.
In a light-hearted moment, he referenced Trump’s affinity for Russian President Vladimir Putin and humorously used a religious saying, “Bless me, Father, for he has sinned,” to describe Trump’s perspective on Putin.
