Joe Biden Rages at Donald Trump in Angriest Speech Yet


During a speech in Nevada, President Joe Biden lashed out against Donald Trump in his angriest speech against the former president and Republican primary frontrunner since the beginning of his 2024 campaign.

Addressing wealthy donors at a fundraiser in Las Vegas on Sunday ahead of the Nevada primaries, Biden said he has to hold his “Irish temper” around his rival.

Talking about Trump’s reported comments that fallen American soldiers are “suckers” and “losers,” Biden said, as quoted by the Daily Mail: “I have to hold my Irish temper. I’m glad I wasn’t with him. I’m not sure what I would’ve done. He said they’re all suckers and losers.”

Mentioning his son Beau, who served in the Delaware National Guard in Iraq before his death in 2015, the president got animated: “My son was not a sucker nor were any of yours. Who does this guy think he is talking about Americans?”

During a rally in Las Vegas, Biden repeated a similar version of the speech, telling the crowd: “This is the guy, when he was in France, they asked him to go to an American cemetery in France for World War II, where Americans were buried. You know what he said? He said those folks were suckers and losers.”

He added, yelling: “Suckers and losers the guy said.” He then said he was glad he wasn’t there. “Called my son and your sons and daughters who gave their lives in this country suckers and losers. That’s how this guy thinks. Who the hell does he think he is?” he said.
