Washington, D.C. (March 17, 2020)— Former Vice President Joe Biden won tonight’s primaries in Florida and Illinois, further elevating his position as the likely Democratic presidential nominee.
“Joe Biden should enjoy these victories while he still can, because he is in for a brutal matchup against President Trump, who will focus like a laser on Biden’s economic shortcomings. Just two days ago, Biden participated in a two-hour debate and didn’t mention America’s small business community a single time when discussing the economic impact of coronavirus and how to keep America’s economy running. This is in sharp contrast to President Trump, who is pulling out all the stops to aid America’s small businesses during the largest economic emergency of our lifetimes. During his first three years in office, President Trump put together the best economic record of any president in history, and there is no better person to guide the country through this black swan event. Biden’s far-left agenda, which includes fully repealing the Trump tax cuts, doubling the minimum wage, and a gradual government takeover of our healthcare system, will not withstand close scrutiny during the general election. He will fail.”
