Former Vice President Joe Biden blasted Republicans in a speech Thursday for “fake nationalism,” among other things.
“This is not your father’s Republican Party,” Biden said at the New York State Democratic Convention.
“This is a different deal. They are not — they are not who we are. They are not who America is. But what they are doing is they’re sending a vision of America around the world that is distorted. That is damaging. That is hurting us with this phony populism, and this fake nationalism.”
Biden has openly stated that he’s considering a presidential run in 2020. (RELATED: WATCH: Joe Biden Is Considering Running For President In 2020)
He’s previously fantasized being high-school classmates with Donald Trump and beating “the hell” out of him:”They asked me if I’d like to debate this gentleman, and I said no. I said, ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him,’ he said. (RELATED: Biden Says He’d Have ‘Beat The Hell’ Out Of Trump In High School [VIDEO])
