Bloomberg QuickTake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Blasts Republicans for Holding Barrett Supreme Court Hearing” – below is their description.
Joe Biden campaigned Monday in Ohio, attempting to expand the battleground map and keep President Donald Trump on the defensive in a state thought to be out of reach for Democrats after Trump’s wide margin of victory there four years ago. The Democratic presidential nominee stressed an economic message and touted his own record while casting Trump as having abandoned working-class voters who helped him win Rust Belt states that put him in the White House in 2016. In Toledo, Biden addressed United Auto Workers who represent a local General Motors’ powertrain plant. The former vice president spoke in a parking lot with about 30 American-made cars and trucks arrayed nearby, and he struck a decidedly populist note. Biden highlighted his role as vice president as the Obama administration rescued the U.S. auto industry after the 2008 financial collapse. Trump carried Ohio over Democrat Hillary Clinton by a comfortable 8 percentage points in 2016, but recent polls show this year’s presidential race tightening in the state. The Biden campaign has increased advertising in Ohio lately, even as Trump has scaled back his efforts in the state and elsewhere. Biden’s perceived increases in support have largely come as the president has seen his backing slip in cities including Cincinnati and Cleveland – but he is looking to cancel that out by further expanding his already strong support among voters in rural areas. Biden said Trump has mishandled the coronavirus pandemic, exacerbating the resulting economic fallout. He said the Trump administration “squandered” the strong economy it inherited from the Obama White House four years ago, and he promised to create new, high-paying union jobs once the country gets the virus under control. “He turned his back on you,” Biden said of Trump. “I promise you, I will never do that.”Bloomberg QuickTake: Now YouTube Channel
