The Associated Press reports:
In a forceful rebuke to President Donald Trump and other Washington Republicans, former Vice President Joe Biden told fellow Democrats in New York on Thursday that the GOP has abandoned traditional American values in the name of “phony populism” and “fake nationalism.”
Speaking at the party’s New York state convention on Long Island, Biden urged his party to stand for tolerance and efforts to expand education and economic opportunity.
“This is not your father’s Republican Party,” Biden told the audience. “They are not who we are. They are not who America is. What they are doing is sending a vision of America around the world that is distorted. That is damaging. That is hurting us… this phony population, this fake nationalism…. It’s time to say ‘no more.’”
