Donald Trump dubs Joe Biden ‘the destroyer of American greatness’

Donald Trump has dubbed Joe Biden “the destroyer of American greatness” in his closing speech at the Republican convention as he warned the country’s way of life would be dismantled unless he won re-election.

In an address packed with grave warnings about the consequences of a Biden presidency, Mr Trump said that his political opponents saw America as a “depraved” and “wicked” country and wanted to push it towards socialism.

The US president cast Mr Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, as a man with a string of past “betrayals and blunders” from his five decades in Washington who is too weak to keep Americans safe from rioters.

He also pushed back hard on two themes from Mr Biden’s own convention speech last week – that the Democrats represented the “light” in a battle against Mr Trump’s “dark” agenda and that Mr Biden has an empathy the president lacks.
