CBS Pittsburgh reports:
The race for the White House is making its way through our area today. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will be stopping here in the Pittsburgh area to deliver remarks, just under two weeks after accepting his party’s nomination.
His campaign says they will focus on this question for voters — “Do you feel safe in Donald Trump’s America?!”
Biden’s campaign points out COVID-19 and how it’s killing thousands of Americans has turned our economy upside down and has left parents struggling. They say President Donald Trump continues to create chaos rather than trying to heal the country.
The Washington Post reports:
Joe Biden will argue that no one believes President Trump can address the violence that has emerged in America’s cities during social justice protests because “for years he has fomented it,” as the Democratic nominee delivers remarks in Pittsburgh on Monday on a subject that Trump has tried to make a focal point of his reelection bid.
Excerpts of Biden’s speech were released Monday morning by his campaign. Trump has no public events Monday, but is planning a highly anticipated visit Tuesday to Kenosha, Wis., which is experiencing unrest after the police shooting that paralyzed Jacob Blake.
The White House said Trump plans to make the trip despite pleas from Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers and other Democrats who argue that Trump could inflame tensions.
Start time is 1:30PM Eastern.
