WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joe Biden blasted President Trump for shaming him for abandoning Pennsylvania — an attack line the president deployed at his Montoursville, Pennsylvania rally Monday night.
“My family did have to leave Pennsylvania when I was 10,” Biden wrote in a fundraising plea Tuesday, reminding his supporters about the circumstances that brought his family to Delaware — that his dad had lost his job.
“This is proof that Donald Trump doesn’t understand the struggles working folks go through. He doesn’t understand what it’s like to worry you will lose the roof over your head. He doesn’t understand what it’s like to wonder if you’re able to put food on the table.”
Biden continued, “And he doesn’t understand that the longest walk a parent can make is up a short flight of stairs to their child’s bedroom to sit on the end of the bed and say, `honey, I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. We have to move. You can’t go back to your school. You won’t see your friends. You can’t play on that team. You can’t be in the choir because Daddy lost his job or Mommy lost her job.’”
Pennsylvania is a key battleground state, Biden, a Scranton native, opened up his campaign headquarters in Philadelphia.
