Washington, Oct 10 (efe-epa).- United States Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden criticized his electoral contest rival President Donald Trump, saying “he can only see the world” from the renowned “Park Avenue” in New York.
At a campaign event in Pennsylvania, Biden called Trump’s trade war “reckless” and said American farmers have been shattered by his “broken promises.”
“The election is here, the election could not be tougher, the stakes could not be higher,” said the former vice president.
Biden said “Americans deserve a president who understands what is happening.”
“They are facing real challenges at the moment. The last thing they need is a president who exacerbates them,” said the Democratic candidate, who insisted on questioning the strategy of his political rival concerning the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump and his wife, Melania, tested positive for coronavirus a week ago and just this Saturday the president led his first public act at the White House.
Specifically, Biden said Trump’s presidency will be the first in modern American history to end “with fewer jobs than when it started.”
As a result of the pandemic and measures to prevent its spread, unemployment in the United States climbed to historic levels, going from 3.5 percent in February to 14.4 percent in April, although it gradually fell to 7.9 percent in September.
According to Biden, Trump is leaving a “K-shaped” recession, which alludes to a deepening of inequalities, where, according to the Democrat, “those at the top continue to rise, while those in the middle and those below see that things get worse.”
“It means that essential workers who have sacrificed themselves to support us during the pandemic are being abandoned by the most uneven recovery in modern history,” he said, noting that, meanwhile, America’s 100 biggest billionaires “have fared. fairly well.”
“The fact is that the president can only see the world from Park Avenue,” said Biden, who promised jobs and insisted he will not ban the hydrocarbon extraction technique known as hydraulic fracturing or “fracking.” EFE-EPA
