Biden Bashes "Distracted" Democrats For Ignoring Working-Class Concerns

After declaring to a bunch of SALT Conference attendees last month that Hillary “was never a great candidate,” former Vice President Joe Biden criticized the Democratic Party's campaign strategy for winning over working class voters, saying that too many were distracted by the Trump campaign's negativity, the Hill reported.

 

“Because of the negative campaign that [President Donald] Trump ran, how much did we hear about that guy making 50,000 bucks on an assembly line, [and] the woman — his wife — making $28,000 as a hostess?" Biden asked.

 

"They have $78,000, two kids, [are] living in a metropolitan area, and they can hardly make it," Biden added. "When was the last time you heard us talk about those people?"

Biden, who was stumping for New Jersey gubernatorial candidate and former Goldman Sachs executive Phil Murphy, sounded like his old campaign-trail self, stoking speculation of another run in 2020.

When asked at SALT if he would run again for the presidency, Biden said “I may very well do it,” but added that he couldn’t commit to another run right then.

As The Hill reports, some Democrats see Biden as the best candidate to try and win back some of the working class white voters lost to Trump. Biden maintains that he hasn’t ruled out another run for the presidency.
