The designated presidential candidate is attacking Trump in his core business issue. Biden wants to strengthen research and production and help working families.
Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic challenger to U.S. President Donald Trump in the presidential election, wants to pep up the troubled American economy with $ 700 billion in the event of his election victory. The economic stimulus package he had planned would set in motion as many state investments as not since the Second World War. At the same time, Biden accused his rival Trump of failing in the corona crisis.
“During this crisis, Donald Trump focused almost exclusively on the stock exchanges,” criticized Biden during a campaign speech of over half an hour in Dunmore, Pennsylvania, near his parents’ home.
“Time and time again, working-class families pay the price for this government’s incompetence.” Trump ignores the corona pandemic and climate crisis while sowing discord and division in the midst of a national debate about systemic racism. This causes “terrible human costs”, and profound economic consequences said, Biden. If he is elected president himself, he will “put a laser focus on working families – the middle-class families that I come from,” said Biden.
To this end, the Democrat wants to support state-owned production companies in particular. According to his plan, the U.S. government would spend approximately $ 400 billion over four years buying goods and services made in the United States. A further $ 300 billion is expected to advance research and development in domestic technology companies. In total, the measures would create more than five million new jobs, Biden announced.
