”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 Wednesday, according to prepared remarks for a speech in Reno, Nevada. “ You ’ re not going to destroy me .

And you ’ re not going to destroy my family.

“He did it because, like every bully in history—he’s afraid. He’s afraid of just how badly I would beat him next November,” Biden said in Reno, referring to Trump allegedly pressing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Biden family’s ties in Ukraine, for which he’s now facing a formal impeachment inquiry led by House Democrats.

“ You ’ re not going to destroy me ,” he says in the excerpts. “And you ’ re not going to destroy my family. I don’t care how much money you spend or how dirty the attacks get.” Earlier in the day, speaking at a gun safety forum in Las Vegas, Mr. Biden blasted the president and jokingly pretended

For months, Republicans gloated as Democrats agonized and squabbled over the question of impeaching President Trump . It was a perfect execution of the popular “What about Biden !” dodge, in which defenders dismiss questions about Mr. Trump ’s behavior while pivoting to insist that the real

Earlier Wednesday, Trump called Biden and his son Hunter “stone-cold crooked.”

“His son walks out with millions of dollars, and the kid knows nothing,” Trump said at the White House, referring to Hunter Biden’s board seat on Ukrainian firm Burisma despite an apparent lack of experience. Trump and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani have alleged that Biden had a prosecutor investigating his son’s company in Ukraine fired to cease investigations.

Biden said Trump’s “predictable” response had been to attack him and his family. He called the whistleblower who raised concerns over Trump’s July phone call with Zelensky “courageous” for exposing the president’s “scheme.”

Trump urged Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky to investigate the matter, prompting a whistleblower to file a complaint against him. Trump said "Biden and his son are stone cold crooked," during a Wednesday press conference.

“I feel Biden ’s our best chance to beat Trump — by far.” John Anzalone, a Democratic pollster who Mr. Biden ’s graciousness toward Republicans has gotten him into trouble with Democrats who see “Until there is someone in the Republican Party who can stand up to Trump , then none of them are

"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, according to excerpts from the speech. And you ' re not going to destroy my family.

“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. 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,” Biden promised.

"We're not going to let Donald Trump choose the Democratic candidate, period," Biden added.

"Desperate and defensive, Trump sends one crazed tweet after another--insinuating that the whistleblower should be executed, threatening to prosecute the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, warning direly of civil war,” he also said.

Earlier Wednesday, a spokesman for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., acknowledged that the whistleblower had reached out to Schiff’s panel before filing a formal complaint. Trump then accused Schiff of helping the whistleblower to write the complaint accusing Trump of improperly pressuring a foreign government to investigate a political rival.

Biden ads focus on early-voting states as he counters Trump

  Biden ads focus on early-voting states as he counters Trump Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is committing to $6 million worth of television and digital advertising in the first four states on the 2020 election-year calendar. It’s the latest demonstration of an increasingly aggressive campaign as he tries to hold his place as the party’s top challenger to President Donald Trump.The ad buy comes as the former vice president steps up his counter-attacks after disclosures about Trump’s effort to use the Ukrainian government to try to tarnish Biden, which has driven the Democratic-controlled House to undertake an impeachment inquiry.

But even if you ’ re not inclined to empathize with Biden — even if you assume the worst about him — Trump ’s conspiracy theory makes no sense. If anything, they were working at cross-purposes. As I’ve written multiple times, I don’t want Biden to be the Democratic nominee.

They’ re not going to refuse me. Like other aspiring autocrats, such as Hungary’s Viktor Orbán or Poland’s Jarosław Kaczyński, Trump seeks to delegitimize his opposition as “ enemies of the people” in order to mobilize his base and maintain a stranglehold on power.

Trump has been accused of making military aid to Ukraine conditional on its investigation of Biden and his son. The president repeatedly has denied doing anything wrong.

Biden said “the defining characteristic” of Trump's presidency has been the abuse of power. “That’s why one of the gravest threats to our democracy is a president who puts their own personal gain ahead of the public good, and that is why Trump will do anything it takes to hold on to it,” he added.

Biden again brought up Trump's meeting with NRA head Wayne LaPierre last week. "I’m not surprised the NRA met with Trump to prop him up," said Biden, referring to a New York Times report on Friday that alleged LaPierre promised financial support in the face of political turmoil if the president would "stop the games" on gun legislation. “What do you think mattered more to Trump, Trump winning reelection or the safety of our children?” Biden asked.
