Donald Jr. on Biden: ‘Beijing Biden’
Donald Trump Jr. Monday night showed once again why he is considered one of his father’s most effective advocates by delivering a passionate defense of Trump Sr.’s presidency while excoriating Joe Biden as “Beijing Biden” and the “Loch Ness Monster of the swamp.”
Trump Jr., 42, was slotted into the night’s high profile slot at the convention, in part, because he can often communicate what the president is thinking but can’t quite say.
“Firebrand speaker, sportsman and big-game hunter,” says the BBC, “Mr. Trump is doing everything he can to help his father win re-election. The Republican strategy has focused on energizing the president’s base of supporters, and they see the younger Mr. Trump as their ace in the hole.”
In the most direct assault on Biden of the convention thus far, Jr. reminded Americans that Biden’s record is spotty at best, and non-existent at worst; that Biden is someone who has raised his head up once in a while to run for president, but then disappeared back into the D.C. swamp, always looking for bailouts for the government on the back of taxpayers.
“Biden has promised to take…money back out of your pocket and keep it in the swamp. That makes sense though, considering Joe Biden is basically the Loch Ness Monster of the swamp,” Trump Jr. said, scorching Biden.
Trump Jr. then warned Americans that this year’s battle for the presidency is different.
“In the past, both parties believed in the goodness of America. We agreed on where we wanted to go. We just disagreed on how to get there. This time the other party is attacking the very principles on which our nation was founded.”
“If they get their way,” Trump said of liberals, “it will no longer be the Silent Majority. It will be the silenced majority.”
Trump then defended his father’s record on combating the China virus and the economy by comparing it Democrats’ do-nothing complaining about everything Trump does.
“The president quickly took action and shut down travel from China,” said Trump. “Joe Biden and his Democrat allies called my father a racist and xenophobe for doing it.”
The younger Trump was the keynote speaker for the evening, on the day his father formally wrapped up the nomination by an in-person, roll-call vote.
After the nomination, President Trump addressed supporters at the convention in a surprise appearance that contrasted sharply with the Democrats’ socially-distanced convention.
Both Trumps said that the November election is the most important of our lifetime and worried about Democrat attempts not just to sabotage the election, but also the economy.
“Imagine the country you want to live in — one with true, equal opportunity, where hard work pays off and justice is served with compassion and without partiality. You can have it,” Donald Jr. added.
