President Donald Trump has rejected Joe Biden’s ‘dark, gloomy, gloomy’ vision for the future, saying the Democratic presidential candidate could send the country back to a COVID-19 lockdown that would trigger a super ‘depression’.
The commander-in-chief made the claim at two campaign rallies in Florida on Friday as he tries to rally support in the vital swing state just 11 days before the election.
“This election is a choice between a super recovery from Trump and a super depression from Biden!” he told a raucous crowd in Pensacola.
Joe Biden’s plan will crush American; my plan will crush the virus. We’re going to get back to normal where we were seven months ago ‘.
Trump echoed the same theme at a previous meeting at The Villages – an elderly community in Sumter County.
“This election is a choice between … a Trump super recovery and a Biden depression because you get a depression. Who has 401 (k) s in this group? Somebody? When he’s come in, wave goodbye to your 401 (k) as it’s going through the pipes. ‘
Trump is following Biden in his home state, but the race is tight. The RealClearPolitics poll average has increased Biden by 2 points, well within the margin of error.

During the day, President Trump portrayed himself as an optimist, claiming that Biden was a pessimist trying to scare Americans.
“All he’s talking about is COVID, COVID, COVID because he wants to scare people,” Trump said.
‘Last night [at the debate] he said, “America is entering a dark winter.” Isn’t that really inspiring? He wants to be president. Remember. We have a man who can’t even talk and he says, “We’re going into a dark winter.” So inspiring, but he’s actually trying to scare people. He’s trying to get something because he’s been such a failure at every level of government that this is something. ‘
The commander-in-chief continued, “We are not entering a dark winter. We enter the last corner and approach the light at the end of the tunnel. That’s the way I look at it. ‘
The comments come when the CDC revealed that COVID cases are on the rise in nearly 80 percent of US states and territories.
On Friday, the country registered more than 70,000 new cases of the virus, bringing the total number of infections to 8.45 million. More than 223,000 Americans have died from the disease.

During his rallies in Florida, Trump also unleashed a new campaign weapon: videos. He played several videos showing Biden in a bad light about Social Security, making fun of Medicare and making the crowd burst out laughing.
Trump argued that he is the voters’ best choice for the next four years.
“Joe works to enrich his family and I work for the American people,” he said.
He claimed that Biden would scrap the Second Amendment and private healthcare, destroy the suburbs and do away with fracking.

He kept attacking Biden, hitting Biden, a known moderate, for being too liberal.
Joe Biden has struck a corrupt deal in exchange for his party’s nomination. He has turned over control of his party to socialist communists, Marxist left-wing extremists, ‘he said.
He also claimed that China was trying to help Biden win after a report that Russia was looking for voter data to help the president.
Joe Biden is a corrupt politician, and he’s completely compromised. China is desperate for Biden to win. Because if Biden wins, China wins, and if China wins, China will own America, ”he said.
He claimed Hunter Biden’s business dealings with China and Ukraine earned the Bidens millions, even though Joe Biden has released more than 20 years worth of tax returns and there is no sign of that money.
“Joe Biden has sold out American workers at every turn, destroying the lives of millions of American families and their families,” Trump said.
He said he ran for that kind of corruption.

‘I couldn’t stand by that I couldn’t stand and watch these terrible trade deals ripping off America all the time. I couldn’t sit back and look at China year after year, hundreds of billions of dollars they made, ”he said.
His attacks echoed many he’d lobbied Biden at a rally at The Villages earlier Friday.
He began to hit his democratic rival with his oil policy.
“This is probably the most shocking division ever created,” Trump said.
“Could be one of the worst mistakes” in presidential political history, he said.
Biden’s pledge to “ move away from the oil industry ” shocked that energy sector, leading the Democratic candidate to try to clarify his position, saying he would pass it “ over time. ”
The president argued it would harm Biden in some of the Midwestern states courting both candidates.
‘You look at Texas. Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Ohio, you watch, ”he said.
Pennsylvania and Ohio are crucial states for winning the White House. Democrats also play for Texas, which is the trend blue.

Trump lit up some of his debating moments, remembering how Biden’s answer to oil came about and how he attacked Biden on immigration.
He also showed a video – a rare event at a Trump rally – of Biden and Bernie Sanders arguing about Social Security in a Democratic primary debate, a big deal in Florida.
The ad was a Sanders campaign ad during the Democratic primaries.
At his meeting in Pensacola, he showed a video where Biden talked about fracking, which Trump claims will end, and Biden has said he wouldn’t.
Trump went hard after Biden – a change in tone from how he showed restraint during Thursday night’s presidential debate.
“He’s a corrupt politician,” he said of Biden. ‘He’s a liar. He will look at you and lie. ‘
He argued that Biden has changed his stance on fracking and oil.
“This man is either really stupid or lying,” he said.
