In an interview with the Palm Beach Post, Frank Biden revealed that the family of the Pennsylvania family voted for Donald Trump after she disliked & # 39; & # 39; felt through Hillary Clinton's campaign.
He also spoke about the failures of the Clinton campaign.
Joe Biden helped pave the way for Clinton when he decided not to flee, citing the death of his son Beau, after a battle with brain cancer.
"We would never have lost Pennsylvania and all of my relatives – the Finnegan family – who voted for Donald Trump because they hurt Hillary and her campaign," he said, referring to Clinton's. loss of the Keystone state.
We would never have gone to Michigan because the campaign decided not to do that because they had the right to vote for those people, "he continued.
& # 39; Appealing politics loses politics. You have to work for every single voice and people need to know individually, collectively and in person that you care about them, that they are important, "he added.
Clinton campaigned in Michigan, although late in the campaign and eventually lost the state.
She did not go to Wisconsin, another state she lost.

He also shot the independent Bernie Sanders, who is considering his own run and was fighting against Clinton.
& # 39; My personal policy is not as far removed as many of the candidates seem to be. You know, Bernie Sanders is not a democrat. He is not a member of the Democratic Party. He is a recognized socialist. I am not. But there are some shared ideas. This idea of being put in a bag, or of being ideological, I think, is hugely restrictive.

About the health of his older brother, he said: "I laugh, I mean, the most laughable about me because I am a training partner, and I look at this president, who is obese and probably can not run 18 holes of golf, is in one way or another compared to Joe, shape or shape. & # 39;
He continued: "Joe works four days a week. He is in better shape than he was when he was 65. & # 39;
