In a spirited address delivered to members of North America’s Building Trades Unions, President Biden showcased his trademark wit and targeted criticism, drawing enthusiastic applause as he dissected former President Donald Trump’s tenure with incisive humor and policy contrasts.

Addressing a receptive audience of 250,000 union members in battleground states, President Biden took aim at his predecessor, skewering Trump’s infamous statements and policy failures.

He invoked laughter when referencing Trump’s past assertions, such as his claims about windmills causing cancer and advocating for bleach injections during the pandemic.

“Meanwhile, Donald Trump still thinks windmills cause cancer,” Biden jested during the campaign event. “That’s what he said! By the way, remember when he was trying to deal with COVID, he said ‘just inject a little bleach in your veins. He missed it, it all went to his hair.”

The speech was hosted by the North America’s Building Trades Unions, which recently endorsed Biden, citing a commitment to the values and priorities that resonate with working-class Americans. Their leader emphasized a focus on engaging and mobilizing support from communities pivotal in the upcoming election.

President Biden’s address not only elicited laughter but also highlighted serious contrasts in policy and approach. He emphasized Trump’s unfulfilled promises on infrastructure, citing the absence of tangible progress during the touted ‘Infrastructure Week.’

“He promised us ‘Infrastructure Week’ well I’ll tell you what, it took four years, he never built a damn thing. Nothing!” remarked Biden, garnering applause. “I’m serious! Are you surprised? I’m making sure of projects like labor agreements so highly skilled workers have a voice on the job.”

Continuing his critique, Biden delved into Trump’s record on labor relations, contrasting his own support for union rights with Trump’s past dealings.

“Even before Trump was president, he preferred nonunion workers on his real estate projects,” Biden highlighted. “And I won’t get into the stories…”

The president also cautioned against Trump’s proposed tax policies, framing them as detrimental to ordinary Americans.

“He wants to give another massive tax cut to the wealthy,” Biden asserted. “And he also says he wants to cut your Medicare and Social Security and he’s gonna let that happen. By the way, these guys mean this stuff! They mean it.”

The crowd responded enthusiastically to Biden’s pledges to protect social safety nets and ensure fairness in taxation, underscoring the divergent paths offered by the two political platforms.

“Look folks, I remember that there used to be two parties,” Biden remarked. “Real parties, you know? But this ain’t your father’s Republican Party. This is a different breed of cat. Look I’ve got a better idea: I’m going to protect Social Security and Medicare by making the very wealthy begin to pay their fair share.”

The address encapsulated Biden’s strategy of emphasizing his administration’s policy contrasts with the Trump era, blending humor with substantive policy discussion. The event showcased Biden’s capacity to connect with working-class audiences, presenting himself as a champion of their interests and values, while underscoring stark policy differences ahead of the election.
