LAS VEGAS — Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden stood in front of 200 southern Nevadans last Friday afternoon, as part of his campaign in the 2020 elections.
He talked about rebuilding the middle class, gun control, and climate change.
It was his first public appearance since democrats in congress launched an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
“As we meet here today, we have ample evidence by a serious and sustain threat that Donald Trump poses to our democracy.”
Biden was interrupted by a protester in the audience, with a #MeToo movement sign in tow.
According to transcripts of a call President Trump made to Ukranian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump allegedly asked the foreign government to investigate Joe Biden’s son Hunter, who served on the board of an energy company in Ukraine in exchange for aid.
In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN North America bureau, Biden responded to the charge he used his position as U.S. Vice president in 2015 to demand that Ukraine oust its top prosecutor to protect his son. He also expressed confidence he could beat Trump in the next elections.
His Fil-Am supporters expressed their full confidence in their candidate.
Cynthia Ameli adds that the Ukraine issue is politically motivated. And it’s just one of many biden will have to face in the course of the campaign.
The latest poll on the Democratic presidential race shows Biden and Bernie Sanders are tied at 22 percent each, followed by Elizabeth Warren at 18 percent.
