The US Democratic nominee for 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden, has compared President Donald Trump to Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels.
The former vice president made the comparison in an interview with MSNBC over Trump's announcement that he is a socialist to win the favor of undecided voters in swing states such as Florida.
“I’m not sure anybody hasn’t already made up their mind they’re for Trump. But who knows. He’s sort of like Goebbels. You say the lie long enough, keep repeating it, repeating it, repeating it, it becomes common knowledge,” Biden said. “The other week I was too moderate, as you remember. I was too tough. And now the American people, I think they know who I am. They know my heart. They know my story, my family story. Trump is using socialism to scare and distract Floridians from a failed pandemic."
He further slammed Trump's crackdown on peaceful protests against police brutality and racial injustice.
“I think people see very clearly the difference between me and Donald Trump. Trump is clearing protests in front of the White House that are peaceful with the military,” he said.
Speaking at a rally in Newport News, Virginia, Trump said Friday that the winner of the November 3 election might not be known for months to come.
"I like watching television and have, 'The winner is', right? You might not hear it for months, because this is a mess," he said. "It's very unlikely that you're going to hear a winner that nigh... I could be leading and then they'll just keep getting ballots, and ballots, and ballots and ballots. Because now they're saying the ballots can come in late."
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on Friday mocked the FBI's assurances about the integrity of this year's presidential election.
"With all due respect to Director [Christopher] Wray, he has a hard time finding emails in his own FBI, let alone figuring out whether there is any kind of voter fraud," the chief of staff told CBS.
Biden is unleashing a blitz of television advertising by spending $45.8 million on television, radio and digital ads in the week from Sept. 22 to Sept. 28 with fewer than 40 days until Election Day.
