In his long speech on Thursday, August 27, night at the Republican National Convention (RNC), President Donald Trump did not leave any opportunity to attack Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden. During his speech, Trump said, “Joe Biden is not the savior of America's soul — he is the destroyer of America's jobs, and if given the chance, he will be the destroyer of American greatness.”

Launching further attack on Biden he said, “For 47 years, Joe Biden took the donations of blue collar workers, gave them hugs and even kisses, and told them he felt their pain — and then he flew back to Washington and voted to ship their jobs to China and many other distant lands. Joe Biden spent his entire career outsourcing the dreams of American Workers, offshoring their jobs, opening their borders, and sending their sons and daughters to fight in endless foreign wars.” “I have done more in three years for the black community than Joe Biden has done in 47 years — and when I'm reelected, the best is yet to come,” Trump claimed. “We have spent the last four years reversing the damage Joe Biden inflicted over the last 47 years.”

Talking about Biden’s plan for coronavirus, Trump said, “Instead of following the science, Joe Biden wants to inflict a painful shutdown on the entire country. His shutdown would inflict unthinkable and lasting harm on our nation's children, families, and citizens of all backgrounds. The cost of the Biden shutdown would be measured in increased drug overdoses, depression, alcohol addiction, suicides, heart attacks, economic devastation and more. Joe Biden's plan is not a solution to the virus, but rather a surrender.” “Joe Biden is weak. He takes his marching orders from liberal hypocrites who drive their cities into the ground while fleeing far from the scene of the wreckage. These same liberals want to eliminate school choice, while they enroll their children in the finest private schools in the land. They want to open our borders while living in walled-off compounds and communities. They want to defund the police, while they have armed guards for themselves.”

Biden, too, did not shy away from responding to the attacks. He hit back at Trump on Twitter and said, “Donald Trump calls himself a wartime president. But now, instead of leading the charge to defeat this virus, he’s waved the white flag. He abandoned the American people when we needed him most.”


In a series of tweets, he said, “When Donald Trump says tonight you won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America, look around and ask yourself: How safe do you feel in Donald Trump’s America?”


He added, “- 180,000 lives lost,- Nearly 6 million confirmed cases of COVID-19,- Over 25 million Americans out of work,- Countless small businesses on the brink of closing. That's Donald Trump's America. We're living it every day. We can't take four more years.”


Biden stated, “From the moment COVID-19 emerged, President Trump downplayed the threat it posed, refused to listen to the experts, and failed to take action to contain its spread. Now, we’re paying the price.”



Soon Twitter also joined the discussion. A user said, "Joe Biden was right. Trump is pure malarkey from his first utterance to his last and his acceptance speech was no exception. The challenge now is to simply get out and vote!"



Another stated, "This is TRUMPS America! He is the add fuel to the fire president! Trump's America isn't safe for anyone! It's full of fear, divide, hate speech, uncertainty, Covid deaths, rioting, stress!"



Another  user wrote, "I think Trump’s vile twisted speech on law and order requires Biden to nip it in the bud, the lie he doesn’t represent law & order & show his strength. I venture to say that it would be wise for Biden & Harris to speak to the public every chance they get like they did yesterday!."



One commented, "Trump’s speech was about 3 times as long as Joe Biden’s but 30 times less inspiring."



A Trump supporter wrote, "President Trumps speech had FIREWORKS. President clearly explained If Joe Biden is elected there would be increased taxes, job loss, lockdowns, anarchists destroying businesses. President loves America and is fighting for the hard working people. Trump 2020"



Another concurred, "President Trump’s Speech that’s an excellent speech is about his concrete solid successful leadership & records of leading United States, comparing 47 years of Biden’s terrible records with a Third Grade English written skill that’s supposed to be rewritten before on the stage!"
