Joe Biden Makes a Ridiculous Claim that America is just an "Idea"
Joe Biden tweeted out “America was an idea. We’ve never lived up to it but we’ve never walked away from it before.”
“We hold these truths to be self-evident.” We’ve never lived up to it, but we’ve never walked away from it before, and I just think we have to be more honest. Let our kids know, as we raise them, what actually did happen. Acknowledge our mistakes, so we don’t repeat them.
We never lived up to it? The United States of America, globally considered as the most powerful country in the world and the leader of the free world was "just an idea" according to Joe Biden, who was a former Vice President of our "idea."
America is the country that ended slavery and fought for civil rights. It is the country that fought two world wars, defeating the evil Nazi regime that tried to take over the world. It is the country that have brought fourth the most revolutionary innovations in all aspects of commerce. It is the country that took down the Soviet Union and communism. It is the country that is by far the most prosperous and generous nation in the world. But according to Joe Biden, it is just an "idea", not a reality.
The Trump campaign shot back at Joe Biden's statement. Trump communications director Tim Murtaugh wrote:
“Joe Biden’s closing argument is that America has always been a disappointment,”
Mercedes Schlapp wrote:
“Where have you been for 47 years?” she asked.
“America is the greatest nation in the world. We stand for freedom and opportunity for all. Our nation is filled with strong, innovative and hard-working individuals who love this nation & don’t want to fundamentally transform it.”
