President Trump was fighting the Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s “criminal enterprise” family at a Nevada meeting Sunday when loud shouts of “unlock him” erupted in the crowd.
“Did you see what’s going on with Biden? He’s a corrupt politician,” Trump said in Carson City, Nevada on Sunday night.
When a supporter shouted “unlock her” in an apparent reference to Hillary Clinton, Trump stopped and corrected, “no, lock him in.”
“Joe Biden is and has always been a corrupt politician,” Trump declared. “He always has been. And to me, the Biden family is a criminal enterprise. It really is.”
Trump fired several shots at his Democratic opponent in 2020 in his speech Sunday, repeatedly praising the New York Post for their explosive report citing alleged corrupt business deals by Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.
At one point, Trump seemed to mock Biden for urging him to “listen to the scientists” in his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, telling the audience that “If I listened to the scientists, we would have a country right now that would be in a massive depression.
“Now,” Trump added, “we are like a rocket ship [economic] speak up. “
Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates responded to the president’s remarks late Sunday, telling Fox News in a statement that “Donald Trump refueled the strong economy he inherited from the Obama-Biden administration by continually discounting and attacking warnings from scientific and medical experts. working around the clock to save lives. “
“Now,” Bates said, “new coronavirus cases are rising, and layoffs are rising. If Donald Trump had listened to Joe Biden when he urged him not to trust the Chinese government over his own scientific advisers on this crisis, he would not be the worst job president since 1929. ”
Trump returned to the campaign trail last Saturday after recovering from coronavirus, which required a three-day hospital stay at Walter Reed Medical Center.
