During the convention, former President Bill Clinton sharply criticized Donald Trump, accusing the incumbent of lack of leadership and chaotic decisions.
Speaking to delegates to the first virtual convention of the party, Clinton also criticized Trump for high unemployment while he was supposed to play a leading role in the world..
“At a time like this, the Oval Office should be the command center,” Bill Clinton said in a video message. “Instead, it became the center of the hurricane. There is only chaos “.
At the same time, Clinton accused Trump of trying to evade responsibility for his decisions..
“One thing that never changes is his commitment to denying responsibility and shifting the blame,” Clinton said of the president. “He never takes responsibility for himself.”.
Former Democratic President Says America Needs An Alternative.
“Our party has united, offering you a completely different choice – the president who goes to work. This is a sober-minded guy who is focused on doing his own thing, Clinton said. – A person who has a mission – to take responsibility, and not to shift the blame, to focus, not to be distracted, to unite, not separate. Our choice is Joe Biden “.
Biden’s wife, Jill Biden, talked about what it’s like to be a teacher during a pandemic. She recorded her video message in a classroom at a Delaware school where she taught English when Biden was a Senator..
Jill Biden continued to teach at community college when she was the second lady of the United States..
“You can hear the alarm echoing in empty hallways,” she said, describing her school during the pandemic. – No smell of new notebooks or freshly scrubbed floors. The rooms are dark, and the smart young faces who were supposed to fill them are enclosed in squares on a computer screen. “.
She also highlighted Joe Biden’s personality as a loving father and determined fighter, able to cope with tragedy. Biden’s son, Beau Biden, former Delaware attorney general, died of brain cancer in 2015 when his father was vice president.
“How to get a broken family together? Just like the country – through love and understanding, small displays of compassion, courage and unshakable faith, “- said Jill Biden.
“Sometimes I don’t understand how he managed to do it – how he could barely move his legs, but keep walking,” she continued. – But I always understood why he did it. He does it for you “.
Former Secretary of State John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential candidate, accused Trump of pretending that Russia did not try to intervene in the 2016 elections and was inactive when media reports surfaced that Russia was allegedly paying rewards to Taliban fighters in Afghanistan for the killings of the US military.
“So he won’t defend our country,” Kerry said. “He doesn’t know how to defend our troops. The only person he wants to protect is himself. “.
