Trump Jabs at Biden’s Critical Iowa Speech: If He Has to ‘Mention My Name 76 Times,’ He’s ‘In Trouble’

President Donald Trump blasted 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden (D) for mentioning his name nearly 80 times in a speech.

On Tuesday it was reported that Biden would be giving a speech to voters in Iowa where he planned to bash the president and flip on his previous stance regarding China as a global economic competitor to the U.S.

Trump — who will also be making a 2020 campaign stop in Iowa on Tuesday — took aim at the frontrunner of the Democrats’ presidential primary race while speaking to reporters in the White House driveway, torching the former vice president as being “in trouble” if he has “to mention [Trump’s] name 76 times” in the address.

“Look, when a man has to mention my name 76 times in a speech, that means he’s in trouble,” said the president.

Trump continued on to say that Biden was “a different guy” than before, pointing out that he “looks” and “acts different than he used to.”

“I don’t know, I guess when he mentions my name that many times, I guess I should be complimented,” quipped Trump.

He also slammed Biden as being a “loser” who “never got more than 1%” and was only redeemed when “Obama took him off the trash heap.”

Trump went on to comment that the former vice president “look[ed] like he’s failing” and that “his friends from the left” would “overtake” him in the polls “pretty soon.”

The president’s comments came as Biden — one of 23 Democrats, and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), running for the Democratic presidential nomination — held a campaign rally in Iowa where he claimed Trump is “a genuine threat to American democracy” and an “existential threat” to the U.S.

As IJR Red previously reported, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called out Biden for his jabs at Trump’s foreign policy, pointing out that the former vice president should take a look at his track record before criticizing the president’s.

Trump is set to appear in Iowa for a campaign stop on Tuesday, giving voters a look at what could be the 2020 presidential match-up.

It’s one thing to contrast oneself with the Bad Orange Man. It’s another thing to incessantly harp on how bad he is. Gropin’ Joe needs to sell Joe, not how bad he thinks the current president is.

He’s not wrong – being anti Trump is not a winning strategy.

I’m not all that impressed with Biden so far…

I agree. One doesn’t demonstrate one’s qualifications by denouncing others.
