Biden: Trump is ‘terrified’ of Pennsylvania election results

‘We can put an end to this presidency,’ said Biden

During a campaign stomp in his home state of Pennsylvania on Sunday, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said Donald Trump is “terrified” of the possible election results.

According to the New York Post, Pennsylvania proves to be one of the most pivotal battleground states in the presidential election. Biden urged his supporters to vote during a drive-in rally in a Philadelphia church parking lot.

“President Trump is terrified of what will happen in Pennsylvania,” Biden said. “He knows if you have your say, he doesn’t stand a chance.”

He then told the crowd that there’s “too much on the line to sit it out” and added, “we only have two more days. In two more days, we can put an end to this presidency that has from the very beginning sought to divide us, to tear us apart.”

Biden also warned of the Republican Party’s efforts to “suppress” voter turnout while addressing how Trump gained Pennsylvania in the 2016 election by nearly 44,000 votes.

“Every day — every day — is a new reminder of how high the stakes are, of how far the other side will go to try to suppress the turnout, especially here in Philadelphia,” Biden said.

Biden also addressed African American voters about the impact COVID-19 has had on their communities, in an article from The Washington Times.

“One in one thousand Black Americans have died from COVID-19, and if we don’t change between now and January, it’s estimated one in 500 by the end of this pandemic,” he said. “That is a mass casualty event in the Black community, and it’s totally unnecessary – totally uncalled for.”

He also addressed the current protests in the city of Philadelphia in response to the death of Walter Wallace Jr. who was shot and killed by police on Oct. 26.

“I see in all the protests here in Philadelphia and across the country a cry for justice. Protesting is not burning or looting, and violence must never be tolerated and won’t,” he said. “But the names of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Jacob Blake, Walter Wallace Jr., they will not soon be forgotten.”
