Former Vice President Joe Biden criticized President Donald Trump Tuesday for embracing a strategy of fear ahead of the midterm elections and compared him to George Wallace, a former governor of Alabama who supported segregation and was a vocal opponent of the Civil Rights movement.
During a rally at the Cheyenne Saloon, the former vice president referenced a Washington Post article titled, “Trump and Republicans settle on fear — and falsehoods — as a midterm strategy.”
“No president has ever led by fear. Not Lincoln. Not Roosevelt. Not Kennedy. Not Reagan,” Biden said. “This president is more like George Wallace than George Washington! Democrats have to choose hope over fear, unity over division. We have to choose our allies over our enemies. We have to choose truth over lies,” he added.
