GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel went into unfriendly territory in Miami on Wednesday to defend Donald Trump while he was abroad
The Republican Party chairwoman insisted that Biden would be a fine opponent for Trump to square off against, because even he has begun to embrace the socialist policies that candidates
‘I think Joe Biden is lurching more towards socialism. I think that they’re all being moved further toward the left. I think that’s where the Democrat party is right now, in terms of their leadership,’ she stated.
Trump claims that Biden, who debates on Thursday evening, is the one he wants to be on a stage with next fall.
He’s deployed a brutal nickname, ‘Sleepy Joe,’ against the politician who’s 76.
Nevermind the fact that Trump is 73 this month. He’s hoping the critique of Biden’s cool-headed tactics sticks, and the white-haired politician is easily knocked out.
Biden wasn’t even on the stage the first night of the debate – Democrats were split in two to prevent over-crowding on the stage and in the spin room.
Yet it was Biden who Trump assailed from Air Force One in a tweet intended to sow Democratic dissension.

‘Ever since the passage of the Super Predator Crime Bill, pushed hard by @JoeBiden, together with Bill and Crooked Hillary Clinton, which inflicted great pain on many, but especially the African American Community, Democrats have tried and failed to pass Criminal Justice Reform,’ he said as his plane was about to land in Anchorage.
He tweeted, ‘They came to me asking for help, and I got Criminal Justice Reform passed, with help from both Republicans and Democrats. Many said that nobody but President Trump could have done this. All previous administrations failed. Please ask why THEY failed to the candidates!’
Neither Biden nor Trump ended up taking many spears on Wednesday, as Democrats on the platform savaged one another.
They’ll both be on trial on Thursday when Biden is at the center of the debate stage with other top-ranking candidates such as Sanders, who has been traveling the country calling Trump a ‘pathological liar,’ join the conversation that began a night prior at the Knight Concert Hall at the Adrienne Arsht Center of the Performing Arts.
Symone Sanders, a senior adviser to Biden, told reporters Wednesday in the spin room that she expects her candidate to be a target.
‘I know there’s a lot of different folks up there. A lot of different people trying to jokey for their moment to go viral,’ she said. ‘A lot of different folks that want to talk about Joe Biden. And Joe Biden wants to talk about his plans for the American people.’
It’s not just Democrats on the debate stage who will be coming for him. Trump is at a conference for world leaders in Osaka, Japan, but that’s unlikely to keep him from tweeting about Biden.
Sanders told DailyMail.com, ‘Look, tomorrow, vice president Biden’s going to take his message directly to the American people. You’ve heard a lot about Joe Biden. Tomorrow you will hear from him about his plans.

‘You know, he’s going to contrast himself with President Trump, he’s going to talk about his vision for the American people. You’re going to hear him talk specifically about healthcare, you’re going to hear him talk specifically about the economy,’ she said, previewing his message.
As for the president, she said, ‘Donald Trump’s going to do what Donald Trump does – tweet. And we’re going to let him tweet, and Vice President Biden is going to speak to the American people tomorrow.’
Michael Steele, the Republican Party chairman when Barack Obama and Joe Biden were in office, told DailyMail.com on Wednesday that Trump should be afraid of Biden, and the current head of the GOP is downplaying the threat from the race’s frontrunner.
‘The party doesn’t want to face Joe Biden,’ he said from the press filing center, ‘because hes’s the one who eats into the base, the new base, because you have to remember, there was a blue wall that Donald Trump punched a hole in.’
He was referring to Trump’s surprise victory in states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin that were supposed to protect Democrats in the 2016 election.
Steele said the former senators and vice president, who’s winning three in 10 voters against 24 opponents, is emerging as a new power center to pull back those voters.
Trump says that Biden is ‘mentally weak’ and not the person he used to be.
‘The only people talking about age are people who don’t want Joe Biden as their nominee,’ he said of the Democratic frontrunner.
