HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE? A SECRET CHINESE BANK ACCOUNT LISTEN CAN YOU IMAGINE IF I HAD HAD A SECRET CHINESE BANK ACCOUNT WHEN I WAS RUNNING FOR REELECTION? YOU THINK FOX NEWS MIGHT HAVE BEEN A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT THAT? THEY WOULD HAVE CALLED ME BEIJING BARRY IT IS NOT A GREAT IDEA TO HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO OWES A BUNCH OF MONEY TO PEOPLE OVERSEAS THAT’S NOT A GOOD IDEA I MEAN, OF THE TAXES DONALD TRUMP PAYS, HE MAY BE SENDING MORE TO FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS THAN HE PAYS IN THE UNITED STATES HIS FIRST YEAR IN THE WHITE HOUSE HE ONLY PAID $750 IN FEDERAL INCOME TAXES LISTEN MY FIRST JOB WAS AT A BASKIN-ROBBINS WHEN I WAS 15 YEARS OLD I THINK I MIGHT HAVE PAID MORE TAXES THAT YEAR WORKING AT A DISPENSING ICE CREAM HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE? HOW MANY PEOPLE HERE PAID LESS THAN THAT? IT IS POSSIBLE, JUST POSSIBLE NOW THAT IF YOU ARE LIVING HIGH ON THE HOG AND YOU ONLY PAY $750 IN TAXES, THAT MAYBE, JUST MAYBE HE MIGHT NOT KNOW WHAT WORKING PEOPLE ARE GOING THROUGH IN PENNSYLVANIA WE CANNOT AFFORD FOUR MORE YEARS OF THIS, PHILADELPHIA BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS, RIGHT NOW YOU CAN CHOOSE CHANGE RIGHT NOW YOU CAN VOTE FOR MY FRIEND JOE BIDEN AND HIS RUNNING MATE KAMALA HARRIS AS THE NEXT PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HE’S A NATIVE SON SCRAPPY KID FROM SCRANTON YOU KNOW HIM YOU KNOW HE KNOWS YOU LET ME TELL YOU HOW I CAME TO KNOW HIM AND HOW I CAME TO LOVE HIM 12 YEARS AGO WHEN I CHOOSE JOE BIDEN AS VICE PRESIDENT, AS MY VICE PRESIDENTIAL RUNNING MATE, I DIDN’T KNOW JOE ALL THAT WELL WE HAD SERVED IN THE SENATE TOGETHER WE WEREN’T SUPER CLOSE HE AND I CAME FROM DIFFERENT PLACES WE CAME FROM DIFFERENT GENERATIONS I CAME TO ADMIRE JOE WHO AS A MAN LEARNED EARLY ON TO TREAT EVERYBODY HE MEETS WITH DIGNITY AND RESPECT LIVING BY THE WORDS HIS PARENTS TAUGHT HIM NO ONE IS BETTER THAN YOU, BUT YOU ARE BETTER THAN NOBODY THAT EMPATHY, THAT DECENCY, THAT BELIEF THAT EVERYBODY COUNTS, THAT IS WHO JOE IS THAT IS WHO THEY WILL BE THE PRESIDENCY DOESN’T CHANGE WHO YOU ARE, IT REVEALS WHO YOU ARE JOE HAS SHOWN HIMSELF TO BE A FRIEND OF WORKING PEOPLE FOR EIGHT YEARS JOE WAS THE LAST ONE IN THE ROOM WHEN I FACED A BIG DECISION HE MADE ME A BETTER PRESIDENT

HE’S GOT THE CHARACTER AND EXPERIENCE TO MAKE US A BETTER COUNTRY HE AND KAMALA AREN’T DOING TO BE IN THE FIGHT FOR THEMSELVES BUT FOR EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US LOOK, I GET THAT THIS PRESIDENT WANTS FULL CREDIT FOR THE ECONOMY HE INHERITED AND ZERO BLAME FOR THE PANDEMIC THAT HE IGNORED BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? THE JOB DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY TWEETING AT THE TELEVISION DOESN’T FIX THINGS MAKING STUFF UP DOESN’T MAKE PEOPLE’S LIVES BETTER YOU GOT TO HAVE A PLAN YOU GOT TO PUT IN THE WORK AND ALONG WITH THE EXPERIENCE TO GET THINGS DONE, JOE BIDEN HAS CONCRETE PLANS AND POLICIES THAT WILL TURN OUR VISION OF A BERT, FAIRER, STRONGER COUNTRY INTO THAT REALITY WE LITERALLY LEFT THIS WHITE HOUSE A PANDEMIC PLAY BOOK THAT WOULD HAVE SHOWN THEM HOW TO RESPOND BEFORE THE VIRUS REACHED OUR SHORES THEY PROBABLY USED IT TO, I DON’T KNOW, PROP UP A WOBBLY TABLE SOMEWHERE WE DON’T KNOW WHERE THAT PLAY BOOK WENT EIGHT MONTHS INTO THIS PANDEMIC CASES ARE RISING AGAIN ACROSS THIS COUNTRY DONALD TRUMP ISN’T GOING TO PROTECT ALL OF US HE CAN’T EVEN TAKE THE BASIC STEPS TO PROTECT HIMSELF LAST NIGHT HE COMPLAINED UP IN ERIE THE PANDEMIC MADE HIM GO BACK TO WORK I AM QUOTING HERE HE WAS UPSET THAT THE PANDEMIC HAS MADE HIM GO BACK TO WORK IF HE HAD BEEN WORKING THE WHOLE TIME IT NEVER WOULD HAVE GOTTEN THIS BAD HERE’S THE TRUTH THIS PANDEMIC WOULD HAVE BEEN CHALLENGING FOR ANY PRESIDENT, BUT THIS IDEA THAT SOMEHOW THIS WHITE HOUSE HAS DONE ANYTHING BUT COMPLETELY SCREW THIS UP IS JUST NOT TRUE I WILL GIVE YOU A VERY SPECIFIC EXAMPLE KOREA IDENTIFIED ITS FIRST CASE AT THE SAME TIME THAT THE UNITED STATES DID AT THE SAME TIME THEIR PER CAPITA DEATH POLE IS 3 PERCENT OF WHAT OURS IS IN CANADA IT IS 39 PERCENT OF WHAT OURS IS OTHER COUNTRIES ARE STILL STRUGGLING WITH THE PANDEMIC, BUT THEY ARE NOT DOING AS BAD AS WE ARE, BECAUSE THEY HAVE A GOVERNMENT THAT HAS ACTUALLY BEEN PAYING ATTENTION THAT MEANS LIVES LOST THAT MEANS AN ECONOMY THAT DOESN’T WORK AND JUST YESTERDAY WHEN ASKED IF HE WOULD DO ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY, TRUMP SAID NOT MUCH REALLY? NOT MUCH? NOTHING YOU CAN THINK OF THAT COULD HAVE HELP SOME PEOPLE KEEP THEIR LOVED ONES ALIVE? SOJO JOE IS NOT GOING TO SCREW TESTING HE IS NOT GOING TO CALL SCIENTISTS IDIOTS HE IS NOT GOING TO HOST A SUPER SPREADER EVENT AT THE WHITE HOUSE JOE WILL GET THIS PANDEMIC UNDER CONTROL WITH A PLAN TO MAKE TESTING FREE AND WIDELY AVAILABLE, TO GET A VACCINE TO EVERY AMERICAN COST FREE, AND TO MAKE SURE OUR FRONT LINE HEROS NEVER ASK OTHER COUNTRIES FOR THE EQUIPMENT THEY NEED HIS PLAN WILL GUARANTEE PAID SICK LEAVE FOR WORKERS AND PARENTS AFFECTED BY THE PANDEMIC MAKE SURE SMALL BUSINESSES THAT HOLD OUR COMMUNITIES TOGETHER AND EMPLOY MILLIONS OF AMERICANS CAN REOPEN SAFELY YOU KNOW, DONALD TRUMP LIKES TO CLAIM HE BUILT THIS ECONOMY BUT AMERICA CREATED 1.5 MILLION MORE JOBS IN THE LAST THREE YEARS OF THE OBSERVE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION THAN IN THE FIRST THREE YEARS OF THE TRUMP-PENCE ADMINISTRATION HOW DO YOU FIGURE THAT? THAT WAS BEFORE HE COULD BLAME THE PANDEMIC NOW HE DID INHERIT THE LONGEST STREAK OF JOB GROWTH IN AMERICAN HISTORY, BUT JUST LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE HE INHERITED, HE MESSED IT UP THE ECONOMIC DAMAGE HE INFLICTED BY BOTCHING THE PANDEMIC RESPONSE, HE WILL BE THE FIRST PRESIDENT SINCE HERBERT HOOVER TO ACTUALLY LOSE JOBS JOE HAS GOT A PLAN TO CREATE 10 MILLION GOOD CLEAN ENERGY JOBS AS PART OF A HISTORIC $2 TRILLION INVESTMENT TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE, TO SECURE

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE HE WILL PAY FOR IT BY ROLLING BACK THAT TAX CUT FOR BILLIONAIRES AND JOSIES THIS MOMENT NOT JUST AS A CHANCE TO GET BACK TO WHERE WE WERE BUT TO FINALLY MAKE LONG OVER DUE CHANGES THAT ACTUALLY MAKES LIFE A LITTLE EASIER FOR EVERYBODY THE WAITRESS TRYING TO RAISE HER KID ON HER OWN THE STUDENT TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO PLAY FOR NEXT SEMESTER’S CLASSES THE SHIP WORKER WHO IS ALWAYS ON THE EDGE OF GETTING LAID OFF THE CANCER SURVIVOR WHO IS WORRIED ABOUT HER PREEXISTING CONDITIONS PROTECTIONS BEING TAKEN AWAY LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, PENNSYLVANIA, THIS I KNOW TO BE TRUE, JOE AND KAMALA WILL PROTECT YOUR HEALTH CARE AND EXPAND MEDICARE AND MAKE INSURANCE MORE AFFORDABLE FOR EVERYBODY [HORNS HONKING] YOU KNOW, REPUBLICANS LOVE TO SAY RIGHT BEFORE AN ELECTION THEY WILL PROTECT YOUR PREEXISTING CONDITIONS NOW JOE AND I ACTUALLY PROTECTED YOUR POLICIES TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE WITH PREEKS CYSTING CONDITION — PREEXISTING CONDITIONS TO HELP YOU GET COVERAGE WE CREATED SOMETHING CALLED THE AFFORDABLE HEALTH ACT, AKA OBAMA CARE REPUBLICANS TRIED TO REPEAL OR UNDERMINE IT MORE THAN 60 TIMES WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN ASKED ABOUT IT THEY KEEP ON PROMISING THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE A GREAT REPLACEMENT THEY SAID IT IS COMING IT HAS BEEN COMING IN TWO WEEKS FOR THE LAST TEN YEARS WHERE IS IT? WHERE IS THIS GREAT PLAN TO REPLACE OBAMACARE? THEY HAVE HAD TEN YEARS TO DO IT THERE IS NO PLAN THEY HAVE NEVER HAD ONE INSTEAD THEY ATTACKED THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT AT EVERY TURN DRIVING UP COSTS, DRIVING UP THE UNINSURED NOW THEY ARE TRYING TO DISMANTLE YOUR CARE IN THE SUPREME COURT AS QUICKLY AS THEY CAN IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC WITH NOTHING BUT EMPTY PROMISES TO TAKE ITS PLACE IT IS SHAMEFUL THE IDEA THAT YOU WOULD TAKE HEALTH CARE AWAY FROM PEOPLE AT THE VERY MOMENT WHERE PEOPLE NEED IT MOST, WHAT IS THE LOGIC OF THAT? THERE IS NO LOGIC JOE KNOWS THE FIRST JOB AS A PRESIDENT IS TO KEEP US SAFE FROM ALL THREATS, FOREIGN, DOMESTIC OR MICROSCOPIC WHEN THE DAILY INTELLIGENCE BRIEFINGS FLASH WARNINGS ABOUT A VIRUS THE PRESIDENT CAN’T BE AWOL JUST LIKE THEY PUT BOUNTIES ON THE HEADS OF AMERICANS THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF CAN’T BE ABSENT JOE BIDEN WOULD NEVER CALL THE MEN AND WOMEN OF OUR MILITARY SUCKERS OR LOSERS WHO DOES THAT? I KNOWS THESE HEROS ARE SOMEBODY’S CHILDREN, SOMEBODY’S SPOUSE, SOMEBODY’S DAD OR MOM HE UNDERSTANDS THAT HE IS GOING TO RESTORE OUR STANDING IN THE WORLD, BECAUSE HE KNOWS AMERICA’S TRUE STRENGTH COMES FROM SETTING AN EXAMPLE THAT THE WORLD WANTS TO FOLLOW A NATION THAT STANDS WITH DEMOCRACY, NOT DICTATORS A NATION THAT CAN MOBILIZE AND INSPIRE OTHERS TO OVERCOME THREATS LIKE CLIMATE CHANGE AND TERRORISM AND POVERTY AND DISEASE AND WITH JOE AND KAMALA AT THE HELM, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THE CRAZY THINGS THAT THEY SAID EVERY DAY AND THAT’S WORTH A LOT YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE TO ARGUE ABOUT THEM EVERY DAY IT JUST WON’T BE SO EXHAUSTING YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO HAVE A THANKSGIVING DINNER WITHOUT YOU HAVING AN ARGUMENT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GO ABOUT YOUR LIVES KNOWING THAT THE PRESIDENT IS NOT GOING TO RETREAT CONSPIRACY THEORIES ABOUT SECRET CABALS RUNNING THE WORLD OR NAVY SEALS DIDN’T ACTUALLY KILL BIN LADEN THINK ABOUT THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES RETWEETED THAT IMA IMAGINE WHAT?
