Biden campaign: Trump attacks a 'sign of myopia and desperation'

  Biden campaign: Trump attacks a 'sign of myopia and desperation' Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign is calling recent attacks by President Trump a "desperate attempt" to compete against the former vice president."Despite the breathless coverage each new Trump attack gets, this endless rotation of the same debunked smears isn't the product of strategic genius, it's a sign of myopia and desperation as each successive attempt backfires, re-elevating a massive Trump liability while leaving his campaign scrambling to find something new," deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said in a memo to campaign surrogates on Sunday, according to a copy obtained by The Hill.

ATLANTA (AP) — President Donald Trump and his challenger, Joe Biden, have found something they agree on: The November election could be rife with corruption because of how officials handle the voting process.

Of course, the Republican incumbent and his Democratic rival place the prospective blame in different places. Each points at the other’s party.

Trump once again describes postal voting as a means of electoral fraud

The man seems to be certain: It was not the first time that US President Donald Trump described an expansion of postal voting as a gateway for massive “electoral fraud” - but without providing any concrete evidence. © Evan Vucci Donald Trump at the first campaign event in Tulsa on June 20, 2020. Trump, among other things, would have "foreign countries" print millions of election documents for the congressional and presidential election in November, claimed on Twitter on Monday.

Then Biden says that for Trump , everything is always about Trump . Biden is asked about his having accused Trump of “betrayal” in his handling of an intelligence assessment that Russia had offered bounty payments for attacks on coalition We’ll start as soon as the election is decided,” he says.

Biden says the story is changing but Trump should have paid attention to the matter and gotten to the bottom of any contradictions in intelligence. Biden says Trump should have convened the joint chiefs of staff to make a response plan. We’ll start as soon as the election is decided,” he says.

“I really, really, really believe we’re on the cusp of what could be the most corrupt process that we’ve seen in a general election if we don’t monitor this every single second,” Biden told donors Tuesday evening as he discussed Trump’s and many Republicans’ opposition to expanding early voting and mail-in voting amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

That’s similar language to what Trump has tweeted to his millions of social media followers in recent weeks. “Mail-in voting … will lead to the most corrupt election in USA history,” Trump declared Sunday.

The president previously argued that mail-balloting allows voters to “cheat.” One such tweet drew a rare, special tag from Twitter that directed readers to mail-voting facts that rebutted the president’s unsupported claims about voter fraud. There are instances of voter fraud in the U.S., most often found in local or smaller jurisdictional elections, but there is no evidence of widespread fraud that would tilt statewide or national results.

Biden noted Tuesday that Trump himself has voted using mail ballots, most recently using Florida’s absentee process to cast his Republican primary ballot in March.

Similar word choice aside, Biden’s and Trump’s disparate framing of voting by mail tracks the long-running, largely partisan fight over ballot access and election security. Republicans nationally have pushed aggressive culling of voter rolls, identification requirements that are arduous for some voters, and strict signature and witness rules for absentee ballots. GOP officials cast such rules as necessary fraud prevention; Democrats call them systemic voter suppression.

“We have got to keep ringing the bell about this all the way to the election,” Biden said, adding that his campaign and the Democratic Party have put together a team of hundreds of lawyers and volunteers to focus on voter protection and education. “It’s the greatest concern I have,” Biden said, “not just for my race, but for races up and down the ballot.”

Biden to review Trump move pulling troops from Germany if elected, aide says

  Biden to review Trump move pulling troops from Germany if elected, aide says Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden would review President Trump's controversial decision to withdraw thousands of troops from Germany, according to a top Biden campaign aide. "We would review all of the decisions that President Trump has taken, including that one," Antony Blinken, Biden's senior adviser for foreign policy, told Reuters an interview on Wednesday.Blinken told the newswire the issue over Trump's decision ""We would review all of the decisions that President Trump has taken, including that one," Antony Blinken, Biden's senior adviser for foreign policy, told Reuters an interview on Wednesday.

Biden has maintained the November election should not be postponed and has previously made The move could allow the administration to influence how much the agency charges for delivering "You can be assured between ( Trump ) and the Russians there is going to be an attempt to interfere"

Biden says the story is changing but Trump should have paid attention to the matter and gotten to the bottom of any contradictions in intelligence. Biden says Trump should have convened the joint chiefs of staff to make a response plan. We’ll start as soon as the election is decided,” he says.

Biden singled out Trump’s opposition to injecting federal aid into the U.S. Postal Service. “He’s talking about defunding the post office so they can’t deliver mail-in ballots,” Biden said.

The postal agency doesn’t actually get direct taxpayer support for normal operations, as Biden's dig suggested. But COVID-19 has devastated its already precarious finances, and Congress has considered an aid package. Trump’s White House blocked one bailout effort earlier this year and wants to attach strings to any taxpayer assistance.

At the time, Biden said that he believed Trump was pushing a narrative to cloud the results in November should the president lose. Biden went so far in that April 23 event as to suggest Trump might attempt to postpone the election. Biden offered no evidence of that claim.

Besides Trump’s opposition to mail ballots, Biden declared Tuesday that dozens of proposals from state lawmakers around the country amount to “Jim Crow-type efforts to restrict access to voting.” He did not elaborate. But he promised to “restore the Voting Rights Act,” the 1965 civil rights law that, until a 2013 Supreme Court ruling, required many Southern states and some counties outside the South to get federal approval for all changes to election rules and procedures.
