Trump Claims Joe Biden “Abandoned” Pennsylvania Because Biden’s Family Moved Away When He Was 10

The Washington Post reports:

Hours before former vice president Joe Biden accepts the Democratic presidential nomination, President Trump held a rally in this key swing state where he took aim at his rival’s record and accused him of having “abandoned” Pennsylvania — even though Biden was only 10 when his family moved to Delaware for his father’s job.

“He left,” Trump said of Biden. “He abandoned Pennsylvania. He abandoned Scranton. He was here for a short period of time, and he didn’t even know it.”

Trump made the remarks at a rally Thursday afternoon outside Mariotti Building Products, a family-owned remodeling business in Old Forge, just outside of Scranton, Biden’s birthplace. Biden has frequently visited Pennsylvania, and his 2020 campaign is headquartered in Philadelphia.
