During the final presidential debate on Thursday night, Trump accused Biden of supporting a socialist agenda.
However, Biden countered, “He’s a very confused guy. He thinks he’s running against somebody else.”
“He’s running against Joe Biden. I beat all those other people because I disagreed with them. Joe Biden, he’s running against,” he added.

Through the election cycle, Trump has sought to paint Biden as a “puppet of left-wing extremists” who would “erase our borders, eliminate our police, indoctrinate our children, vilify our heroes, take away our energy … destroy our Second Amendment, attack the right to life, and replace American freedom with left-wing fascism.”
Biden has repeatedly responded to Trump’s attacks. The former vice president previously said, “I beat the socialist. That’s how I got elected. That’s how I got the nomination.”
“Do I look like a socialist? Look at my career, my whole career. I am not a socialist,” he added.
In a separate speech, he said, “You know me, you know my heart. You know my story, my family’s story. Ask yourself, do I look like a radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters? Really?”
