At a campaign event on Saturday, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden criticized Democrats who do not want to unify the nation. Biden said some Democratic candidates believe they have to be angry to win the party's presidential nomination but not him.
Biden said anger is ripping the country apart at the seems and called President Trump the "divider in chief" who blames "The Other" as the source of all problems. He said Trump inherited a good economy "just like everything else in his life." Biden also called him the president of squandering his wealth.
"Some say Democrats don't want to hear about unity," Biden said in Philadelphia. "That they are angry - and the angrier you are - the better. That's what they are saying to have to do to win the Democratic nomination. Well, I don’t believe it. I believe Democrats want to unify this nation. That’s what we’ve always been about. Unity."
"If the American people want a president to add to our division, to lead with a clenched fist, closed hand and a hard heart, to demonize the opponents and spew hatred -- they don't need me. They've got President Donald Trump. Folks, I am running to offer our country -- Democrats, Republicans and Independents -- a different path. Not to a path that never was but a future that can fulfill our potential as a country," the former Vice President said.
"I know how to make government work," Biden added.
