MILWAUKEE (AP) — Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is continuing his broadsides against Trump during a virtual town hall with AFL-CIO union members.
Biden called the president’s alleged remarks about fallen soldiers being “losers” and suckers” un-American. And he said Trump would “never understand” why Americans serve.
“He’ll never understand you, he’ll never understand us, he’ll never understand our cops, our firefighters, because he’s not made of the same stuff,” Biden said.
He told the union members: “You live by a code, an American code. It sounds corny but it’s real: honor, duty, country, something bigger than yourselves. He lives by a code of lies, greed and selfishness.”
Biden marked Labor Day with a visit with union leaders at the AFL-CIO’s Pennsylvania headquarters in Harrisburg.
