On the heels of Joe Biden’s first official rally in the great state of Pennsylvania for the 2020 Democratic Party nomination, it appears Donald Trump’s nerves are officially struck. This is evidenced by his latest series of tweets in which he complained at length about an endorsement Biden received from the Firefighters Union.
“I’ll never get the support of Dues Crazy union leadership, those people who rip-off their membership with ridiculously high dues, medical and other expenses while being paid a fortune,” he wrote. “But the members love Trump,” he continued.
However, it didn’t stop there. About an hour or so later, Trump logged back in and ranted yet again about the “Dues Sucking firefighters leadership.”
Then, later in the evening evening, he still must have had Biden and the swing state on the brain when he tweeted the following: “Pittsburgh jobless rate hits lowest point since the early 1970s (maybe even better than that) and Sleepy Joe just had his first rally there. Fact is, every economic aspect of our Country is the best it has ever been!”
This is typical Trump behavior, though, especially when he feels threatened. He’s quick to bash his anyone or anything that dares to stand in his way, all while promoting false statistics in order to make himself look superior. The problem, however, is that he’s rarely successful in doing so, and this case certainly isn’t an exception to that rule. Sure, the unemployment rate has remained low, but has he even seen how terrible the recent jobs report was? Also, it seems he has forgotten that a fair amount of the current strength of the economy should be attributed to the Obama administration, which included “Sleepy Joe.”
First of all, it’s not true that “every” economic indicator is the best it’s ever been; for instance, even though the unemployment rate has remained low, the recent jobs report was terrible. Second, the current strength of the economy can be directly attributed to the policies of the Obama administration, and Joe Biden was a part of that.
Regardless, it’s fair to assume that Joe Biden’s campaign video has played a huge part in ruffling the president’s feathers as it directly criticizes him for the remarks he made about the “very fine people” who rallied in Charlottesville, a.k.a. the deadly white supremacists. As we’ve seen time and time again, that’s about all it takes to garner Trump’s attention and create a new obsession.
