Opinion

President Donald J. Trump said former Vice President Joe Biden lied about asking former President Barack Obama not to endorse him.

When asked about Biden, the president opined that he thinks Biden can only go down, and not up. “Look, there’s something different. He’s a different person than he was four or five years ago, and he wasn’t so hot four or five years ago.”

It’s a fact, Joe Biden does not have the endorsement of the president he served as vice president, Barack Obama. Biden has yet to reveal why that is.

President Trump suspects there is a reason behind that political move, and is likely not the reason Biden has given. “How he doesn’t get President Obama to endorse him. There has to be some reason why he’s not endorsing him. He was the vice president, they seem to have gotten along, and how President Obama is not endorsing him is rather—a big secret.”

“If you know the answer, please let me know,” President Trump told Hill.TV reporters on a patio outside the White House.

The president added, “And then he goes and lies and says, ‘I asked the president not to endorse me.’ Give me a break…. he’s embarrassed by the fact that Obama’s not endorsing him, so he goes out and says, ‘I asked President Obama not to endorse me.’ … So it could be that President Obama knows something, but there is something going on in that brain of his.”

The Biden Tweets

President Trump has been vocal in expressing his opinions of Biden, in person as well as on social media.

On May 1 President Trump took to Twitter retweeting around 60 tweets that were anti-Biden from firefighters who were angered when the International Association of Firefighters had formally endorsed Joe Biden.

And here are a few more Biden tweets by President Trump.

Some might call this next one a conscientious warning by President Trump. Clearly, no presidential candidate should be threatening physical assault or even hinting at it toward anyone, especially toward the president of the United States. 

For the record: Threatening the president of the United States is a felony under the United States Code Title 18, Section 871. The offense is punishable by up to 5 years in prison, a $250,000 maximum fine, a $100 special assessment, and 3 years of supervised release.

Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault. He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don’t threaten people Joe!

And last, are the president’s thoughts on why China pulled back, a day after Joe Biden had mocked President Trump’s position on China at a campaign rally last week saying, “China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man…they can’t even figure out how to deal with the fact that they have this great division between the China Sea and the mountains in the east, I mean in the west.”

Biden said China’s regime leaders were “not bad folks.” “I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what, they’re not, they’re not competition for us,” he added.

Perhaps Biden hasn’t heard that the Pentagon talks about millions of people in Chinese concentration camps—mostly prisoners of conscience or others charged without a fair trial or none at all.

Or maybe he’s never heard of the Chinese Communist Party’s booming forced organ harvesting industry, where they promise to find a matching organ within a couple of weeks or even days—because they are using prisoners as unwilling donors.
