Biden: Trump is a 'threat to our core values'

Presidential candidate and former United States Vice President Joe Biden called US President Donald Trump a "threat to our core values" as he campaigned in Iowa. "The fact of the matter is that four years of Donald Trump will be viewed as an aberration in American history. Eight years will fundamentally change who we are as a nation, how we're viewed around the world," he warned.

Biden attacked Trump's trade policies, stating that he "doesn't get the basics" of economy and does not understand "the American people are paying his tariffs" in the trade dispute with China. He stressed that Beijing is "a serious challenge to us, and in some areas a real threat" and that the US "needs to get tough with China," but that the president's actions are "only exacerbating the challenge."

If elected, the veteran Democrat promised a fairer tax code and "an economy that rewards work." He also stated he will act on climate change by investing in clean energy innovation, the next generation of biofuels, clean energy infrastructure, and net-zero emissions by 2050.
