Trump says Joe Biden is a ‘puppet’ of AOC and Bernie Sanders


President Trump said Friday that Joe Biden is “a puppet” of New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and would leave people “at the mercy of a socialist mob.”

Trump told Cuban and Venezuelan exiles in Florida that Biden’s alliance with the self-described socialists is frightening.

“Joe Biden and the radical left are trying to impose the same system — socialism plus — in America. Biden is a puppet of Bernie Sanders, AOC and the militant left,” Trump said.

“Nobody will be safe in a Biden America, but Biden doesn’t know what a Biden America is if you ask him to define it — he wouldn’t even know what it is, but other people do. And he will have radical people running that.”

Sanders (I-Vt.) and Biden issued a joint policy agenda Wednesday. The left-wing senator defeated Biden in Democrats’ first three presidential contests this year and his enthusiastic base is essential for Biden in November.

Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is co-chairing a Biden campaign climate change task force.

Trump often describes Biden, 77, as senile and says “other people” will run the country if he’s elected. In Florida, Trump added a jab at Biden’s remark this week endorsing redirecting police funds following the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota.

“Biden wants to defund the police,” Trump said. “He wants to call the cops the enemy, which he did the other day, leaving every citizen at the mercy of a socialist mob, or a mob far worse than socialism was ever meant to be.”

Trump slammed the Obama administration’s policies in Latin America, including steps toward lifting the longstanding Cuban embargo. By contrast, Trump said, he sanctioned Venezuela’s socialist government and recognized Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido as the country’s interim president.

“Biden pledged to reinstate the pro-Communist policies of the Obama-Biden administration. They were pro-Communist policies. The deal he made with Cuba is ridiculous,” Trump said.
