Joe Biden’s presidential campaign launch announcement is not making President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign nervous, his daughter-in-law and senior campaign adviser Lara Trump said Thursday.
“He made us wait so long to announce he was running for president,” she told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” “With the campaign, it doesn’t make us nervous. Joe Biden is among a sea of other candidates who quite frankly are all trying to out-Bernie [Sanders] one another.”
She said she did not hear any proposals for the future in Biden’s announcement, but instead “race baiting as usual . . . identity politics is something that I think we’ll see more of, and we saw it there.”
Trump added she is not concerned about Biden defeating the president in Pennsylvania, as voters there elected him to office because he promised them he would get their jobs back that were taken away by President Barack Obama, “who I might remind folks was a partner right alongside Joe Biden and got a lot of nothing accomplished.”
However, she said, President Trump brought the jobs back and “that’s something the people of Pennsylvania are incredibly grateful for.”
She also criticized Hillary Clinton for her call to conduct hearings on the president after special counsel Mueller’s report.
“It is pretty rich coming from a woman who, against the direction of the FBI, deleted 33,000 emails, destroyed cell phones with hammers, and used BleachBit to wipe their servers,” Trump said. “This is just more of the same from the Democrats. The Mueller report showed there was no collusion with Russia. The president and our campaign did absolutely nothing wrong.”
