Joe Biden's brother Frank says that family felt slighted by Hillary Clinton and voted for Donald Trump instead
Frank Biden took a dig at Hillary Clinton team's campaign strategy stating that if his brother Joe had to run he would have surely won the states that Clinton had lost in.
Former Vice President Joe Biden's younger brother Frank Biden recently revealed that the members of the family from the Pennsylvania branch felt slighted by Hillary Clinton and cast their vote for Donald Trump during the elections.
Frank also took a dig at Clinton's team's campaign strategy stating that if his brother Joe had to run during that time he would have surely won in the states that Clinton had lost in. In an interview with Palm Beach Post, he said, "We never would have lost Pennsylvania, and all my relatives — the Finnegan family — who voted for Donald Trump because they felt slighted by Hillary and her campaign,” Frank said. “We never would have not gone to Michigan as the campaign decided not to do because they felt entitled to the votes of those people."
"Assumptive politics is losing politics,” Frank said. “You have to work for every single vote and people have to know individually, collectively and severally that you care about them, that they’re important.”
Following this, he also spoke about how his brother Joe might run for President against Donald Trump. Frank also added that Joe would be talking to the family about this soon enough. "I think we're going to run," he told the Palm Beach Post. "You can say that 'Frank thinks his brother's going to run.' Now, he could surprise me. But I know the family's behind him 100 percent," he added.
Apart from that Frank also said, "I believe Joe should run. I'm urging him to run and have been for a long, long time." But at the same time, he mentioned a red flag. "You have to understand our family structure. I'm the youngest brother. My sister's the real boss. And Jill [Biden's wife]. It's an Irish matriarchy. They have the greatest influence."
After talking about Clinton, Frank also spoke about Bernie Sanders who battled against her in the elections. "My personal politics are not as far left as many of the candidates seem to be. You know, Bernie Sanders is not a Democrat. He's not a member of the Democratic Party. He's an avowed socialist. I'm not. But there's some shared ideas. This idea of having to be put in a bag, having to be either this or that ideologically I think is hugely limiting. What I know Joe looks at is he looks at an individual policy decision based on its merits," he said
Finally, he spoke about Joe's health condition claiming that he is much more fit than Trump. "I laugh, I mean, the most laughable thing to me because I'm an exercise nut, and I look at this president, who is obese and probably couldn't walk 18 holes of golf, is compared to Joe in some way, shape or form. Joe works out four days a week. He's in better shape than he was when he was 65," Frank said.
