Let’s break down what just went down this Labor Day. President Joe Biden, always one for good timing, went full-on savage on ex-President Donald Trump during a speech in Philly. And oh boy, he didn’t pull any punches.
First off, Biden straight-up went for the jugular, highlighting that Trump was one of only two presidents in U.S. history to leave office with fewer jobs in America than when he got elected. The other one? Herbert Hoover. Ouch, talk about being in not-so-great company. The guy basically implied Trump is a modern-day Hoover, complete with economic mismanagement and all.
But Biden wasn’t done there, no sir. Remember how Trump always bragged about being this big, successful real estate developer? Well, Biden had some words about that. “Guess what? The great real estate builder, the last guy, he didn’t build a damn thing,” Biden said. Burn! Because let’s be honest, under Trump, “Infrastructure Week” turned into a joke that got more laughs than a late-night comedy show.
Now let’s talk about Biden’s vision, which is basically the anti-Trump when it comes to American prosperity. While Trump was busy outsourcing jobs to China, Biden’s pulling them back home. Remember when you were stressing about your pensions under Trump? Well, Biden’s administration is acting like a safety net for millions of those. And while Trump was busy viewing the world from his golden tower on Park Avenue, Biden kept it real, representing those of us who are more familiar with Main Street than Wall Street.
Biden also took a moment to call out the 2024 GOP candidates. According to him, all they do is spread doom and gloom about America. I mean, seriously, could the opposition offer anything besides negative vibes? Biden set the record straight: “America has the strongest economy in the world right now, today.”
Look, regardless of where you stand politically, it’s refreshing to see a president who not only talks about building America back better but is actually making moves to do so. Biden’s not selling us empty promises wrapped in a tweet; he’s laying down facts and backing them up with action. So maybe it’s time for the naysayers to recognize who’s really doing the work to rebuild this country.
