Joe Biden Gives Powerful Speech In Vegas That Has Trump Stewing


With the 2018 midterm elections approaching, many Democrats remain hopeful that they will win a number of elections and gain back control of the House at the very least. A possible 2020 Democratic contender also spoke in Las Vegas on Saturday with strong words for Trump.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is considering a 2020 presidential run, said that American values “are being shredded by a president who’s all about himself.” Biden made his speech to a local union in Las Vegas right before Mr. Trump took the stage at a campaign rally.

Trump was there to boost Republican candidates Senator Dean Heller (NV) and gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt. According to The Washington Post:

‘In Las Vegas, Biden criticized Trump for his approach to Russia and President Vladimir Putin, his equivocating on white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, and his immigration policies, including the separation of migrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border.’

The majority of the crowd were members of the heavily immigrant Culinary Workers Union Local 226. The Post reported:

‘The union represents about 57,000 housekeepers, bartenders, bellmen and other workers in the city’s casino-hotels and has been credited with giving Democrats key wins in the state in 2016.’

Democrats are relying on Latino mobilization driven by the union to give them the boost they need this year. Bethany Khan, Culinary Union spokeswoman said that they checked in more than 500 people for the Las Vegas rally.

On Monday, former President Barack Obama will visit the battleground state of Nevada with a get-out-the-vote rally in Las Vegas.
