President Donald Trump attacked leading Democratic candidate Joe Biden on Saturday morning, claiming the former vice president can not win the 2020 general election, but that countries who do not have America’s best interests in mind were “begging” for a Biden victory.
This was the second time in two days that the president had come out publicly against Biden, who continues to lead the large field of 2020 Democratic hopefuls but has seen his frontrunner status shrink as Senators Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren have gained traction.
What exactly brought on the anti-Biden tirades from Trump was not immediately clear. The former vice president did, however, liken the commander-in-chief to a schoolyard “bully” during a recent wide-ranging interview with CNN.
Joe Biden is a reclamation project. Some things are just not salvageable. China and other countries that ripped us off for years are begging for him. He deserted our military, our law enforcement and our healthcare. Added more debt than all other Presidents combined. Won’t win!

Deserted the military? Not a good line. Debt? Are you nuts?

FACT CHECK: Sen. Harris claimed President Trump's tax bill will contribute at least $1 trillion to US debt.
