Biden went on to say that the president used socialism as a means to distract from his handling of the coronavirus pandemic while comparing Trump to another authoritative figure from the past.
“I think people can see the difference between me and Donald Trump very clearly,” said Biden. “Trump clears protests in front of the White House that are peaceful with the military. This guy is more Castro than Churchill. ”
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Biden said he wasn’t worried when Trump said on Wednesday he would refuse to leave the White House if he were defeated in November, referring to the comments as part of the tactic the president is using if the campaign comes home.
“It’s always about distraction with him,” said Biden as he expressed his confidence that Americans would vote in “large numbers”. “It will be clear from the start where this is going.”
Biden and Trump will face each other for the first time during this campaign at the first presidential debate in Cleveland on Tuesday night.
