Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden intensified efforts Friday to frame the November election as a referendum on President Donald Trump's character, while Trump defended himself Friday against accusations that he mocked American war dead. (Sept. 4)
JOE BIDEN: When my son volunteered and joined the United States military as the attorney general and went to Iraq for a year, won the Bronze Star and other commendations, he wasn't a sucker. The servicemen and women he served with, particularly those who did not come home, were not losers. If these statements are true, the president should humbly apologize.
President Trump has demonstrated he has no sense of service, no loyalty to any cause other than himself. If I have the honor of being the next commander in chief, I will ensure that our American heroes know I'll have their backs, honor their sacrifice, and always caution not to lose my temper. This may be as close as I've come this campaign.
