Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden issued a blistering statement Thursday responding to President Donald Trump‘s comments earlier in the day saying that Biden was “against God.”
In a wide-ranging tirade after he arrived in Cleveland earlier in the day, Trump ranted against Biden as being a person with “no religion, no anything,” someone who would “hurt the Bible, hurt God. He’s against God.
A spokesperson had replied to Trump’s comments earlier, saying that Biden’s “faith is at the core of who he is” and has been “a source of strength and comfort in times of extreme hardship,” comparing that to Trump being “the only president in our history to have tear-gassed peaceful Americans and thrown a priest out of his church just so he could profane it – and a Bible – for his own cynical optics as he sought to tear our nation apart at a moment of crisis and pain.”
A few hours later, Biden himself responded in the statement, beginning with similar words calling his faith “the bedrock foundation of my life,” something that had “provided me comfort in moments of loss and tragedy” — words that have deep meaning for a man who lost his first wife and infant daughter in a car crash in 1972, and then his son Beau Biden to brain cancer in 2015.
“For President Trump to attack my faith is shameful,” continued Biden, saying that it showed that Trump was “a man willing to stoop to any low for political gain, and someone whose actions are completely at odds with the values and teachings that he professes to believe in.”
