President Trump on Friday bashed the Democratic National Convention and his presidential rival Joe Biden, who spoke at the DNC Thursday night.
“Over the last week the Democrats held the darkest and angriest and gloomiest convention in American history,” Trump said during a speech in Virginia.
“They spent four straight days attacking America as racist and a horrible country that must be redeemed. Joe Biden grimly declared a season of American darkness,” he said. “Where Joe Biden sees American darkness, I see American greatness.”
Trump told the conservative Council for National Policy event that his 2016 Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, is “like a crazed lunatic — she’s a lunatic.”
Clinton is “much smarter” than Biden, but he “is more likable,” Trump said.
“I don’t know, maybe I’d rather have the smarter person. Who cares about personality, right?” he joked.
Trump told an enthusiastic crowd, which cheered and whistled, that “it’s time to reject the anger and the hate of the Democrat Party.”
The president touted improving economic figures after the coronavirus pandemic caused a spike in joblessness this year and a dive in the stock market. Trump said an economic recovery is proving to be a “super v.”
“The biggest part of last night’s speech was what Joe Biden didn’t talk about,” Trump said. “He didn’t talk about law enforcement. He didn’t talk about bringing safety to Democrat-run cities that are totally out of control. They have no clue. China was never mentioned in any way shape or form. China will own our country if he gets elected.”
Trump added: “You’ve seen the intelligence reports. China very much wants Joe Biden to win. That would be very insulting if they wanted me to win.”
