Trump Blasts Biden With New Video, Biden Vows “You’re not going to destroy me”

Per CBS News, Joe Biden delivered a forceful speech in response to Pres. Trump’s attacks of him in the midst of the Ukraine call controversy.

President Trump continued his assault on Biden’s credibility Wednesday with a viral tweeted video that has garnered nearly 300k likes at this time.

An earlier Trump video / ad also targeted Biden.

MSN reports former vice president Joe Biden plans to strike a defiant tone during a campaign speech Wednesday night where he will rip President Trump’s efforts to smear him and assure his supporters that Trump won’t destroy him or his candidacy.

The top-polling 2020 Democratic presidential candidate has become inextricably intertwined with the impeachment inquiry into Trump’s behavior, which centers around Trump asking a foreign leader for dirt on Biden’s son.

Biden, who spent four decades in the Senate, has sought to separate Trump and his base from the Republican Party that contains his friends and peers. But in his remarks, Biden intends to slam the GOP.

“He is repeatedly smearing me and my family. His party fans out to carry the smear,” Biden will say, according to excerpts of Biden’s prepared remarks in Reno, Nev.

“Let me make something clear to Trump and his hatchet men and the special interests funding his attacks against me — I’m not going anywhere,” Biden will say. “You’re not going to destroy me. And you’re not going to destroy my family. I don’t care how much money you spend or how dirty the attacks get.”

Democrats have begun to worry that Trump’s relentless attacks on Biden will weigh on the campaign, even if they’re baseless. If Biden is the Democratic nominee there is fear that Trump could succeed in sowing doubt in voters’ minds.

Trump has accused Biden of pressuring Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor in 2016 to benefit his son, Hunter.

Hunter Biden served for nearly five years on the board of Burisma, Ukraine’s largest private gas company, whose owner came under scrutiny by Ukrainian prosecutors for possible abuse of power and unlawful enrichment. Hunter Biden was not accused of any wrongdoing in the investigation. At the time that Joe Biden, then acting in his capacity as vice president, sought to have Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor, ousted the investigation into Burisma was dormant, according to former Ukrainian and U.S. officials.
