Former Vice President Joe Biden held the first public rally of his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination Monday, using a Teamsters union hall in Duquesne, Pennsylvania, in the Pittsburgh area, to showcase his support from the union officialdom.
Biden's campaign announcement was less a video biographical sketch than a call to defeat Donald Trump in 2020, a goal that unites Democrats even as they spar over impeachment and progressive policies such as Medicare for All and free college tuition.
The President's retweets highlighted support from people who claimed to know or be firefighters who support Trump, not Biden, despite the International Association of Fire Fighters' endorsement of Biden. "The prospect of mental issues is a concern for me", Carrera said over the weekend at a candidate forum in Las Vegas with union workers.
"Donald Trump is the only president who has decided not to represent the whole country".
Biden, who announced his candidacy last week, has focused on appealing to the Rust Belt workers who helped Trump win in Pennsylvania and the upper Midwest. I strongly opposed the Trans-Pacific Partnership, he supported it. "If our strength is truly our diversity then the party has to start listening to the working class, they have to welcome us back and our voice will be heard in the primary in this state and that the message we want about job creation, health care, and pension security is what will bring us out in a general".
Trump quote-tweeted Bongino, stating, "I've done more for Firefighters than this dues-sucking union will ever do, and I get paid ZERO!" A a union survey in 2016 showed support for Trump from IAFF union members. "Some things never change!" A look through the posts shared by the troll shows that the account had been tweeting Trump-loving posts every once in a while since September 2017, but it was not until now that the president swallowed the bait and retweeted it. "Labor built the middle class in this country".
He added, "We need a president who honors them and their work". Minimum wage, overtime pay, the 40-hour week: they exist for all of us because unions fought for those rights. In 2016, both Clinton and GOP candidate Jeb Bush were leading in polls at this stage of the campaign, but the state was won by Trump and Sanders in their respective primaries.
Biden, who represented DE in the Senate for more than 30 years, also collected endorsements from the state's entire congressional delegation: Sens.
