In the final days of the presidential race, many of the suburban white women who supported Trump in major battlefield states in 2016 said they preferred Biden this year, according to recent polls.
Trump appealed to voters in the suburbs in the final weeks of the 2020 race, asking, “Women in the suburbs, will you like me please?” Trump said during his “60 minute” interview that he was joking when he said the line at a rally in Pittsburgh, but then made another appeal to the suburbs.
“I have abolished a regulation,” said Trump. “That would put low-income housing in suburbs that would destroy – that would destroy suburbs.”
Trump’s view of the suburbs is detrimental to democracy, Biden said.
“We have gone further and further towards inclusion. This is the first president to try to close it. We cannot maintain this democracy like this. We are so much better than this,” said Biden.
Vice President Mike Pence and Vice Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris were also interviewed.
Harris repeated Biden’s message during her interview. Among other things, the president described Harris as “evil” during the campaign.
When asked if she thinks Trump is racist, Harris said, “Yes I do”, pointing to Trump’s role in where President Barack Obama was born.
“You can look at a pattern that goes back to him that questions the identity of the first black president of the United States. You can look at Charlottesville when there were peaceful protesters and neo-Nazis on the other and he talks about good ones People on both sides. Calling Mexicans rapists and criminals. His first job was to introduce a Muslim ban. Everything speaks for itself, “Harris said.
