In response to question about former vice president Joe Biden, President Trump said, “He’s left-wing, and he’s got all people that are left-wing.”
“In many ways, he’s worse than Bernie,” Trump added.
“Look what he did with guns — he put Beto [O’Rourke] in charge of guns. Beto wants to get rid of guns, right? So that’s a bad stance.”
Biden recently invited Mr. O’Rourke to a campaign rally in Texas.
On stage, Biden promised Beto would lead a gun control effort if Biden won the presidency
“You’re going to take care of the gun problem with me,” he told Mr. O’Rourke.
“You’re going to be the one who leads this effort, I’m counting on you. We need you badly.”
From Washington Times:
President Trump increasingly is portraying Joseph R. Biden as the most liberal candidate in the presidential race as the former vice president surges past Sen. Bernard Sanders in the campaign for the Democratic nomination.
The president on Friday said Mr. Biden would be a figurehead president controlled by “left-wing” advisers like former Rep. Beto O’Rourke on issues such as gun control…
Mr. O’Rourke had pledged during his brief campaign for president to confiscate AR-15 rifles and other firearms if elected.
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick ridiculed the offer by Mr. Biden, calling it sheer stupidity for the November election.
