Joe Biden Tells MSNBC He Is "Finished With Donald Trump"
"This man is thoroughly unqualified, based on his conduct, his abuse of power and his lack of substantive knowledge," said the Vice President on 'Hardball.'
Vice President Joe Biden appeared Tuesday on MSNBC's Hardball With Chris Matthews to discuss the election and give his opinion about Donald Trump's "rigged" election allegations.
During the interview with Matthews, Biden reiterated his stance on Trump and his effectiveness as a leader, saying his problem is a "lack of substantive knowledge."
"This man is thoroughly unqualified, based on his conduct, his abuse of power and his lack of substantive knowledge, just the minimum amount of knowledge needed to be president of the United States of America," said Biden.
He then made a stern declaration by announcing: "I'm finished with Donald Trump."
Biden said during the interview that a majority of voters know the election is not rigged. "You're going to have people, though. You always have them, whatever their background, who are going to believe that it's rigged," he told Matthews. "We've always had that element in every election — the difference is we've never had the head of a great party saying that it is rigged."
Biden went on to note that Trump's insinuations were damaging enough to disqualify the presidential candidate from running for the presidency: "You can't play with the fragility of democracy — that should be disqualifying in and of itself, what he's saying."
Biden also talked about something lacking in his own party. "Democrats need to talk to the working class," he said. "We just started getting back to the point where we can talk about actually beginning to rebuild the middle class."
Added Biden, "We've kind of forgotten about ordinary Americans."
