The Democrats brought firepower to Michigan, a key swing state that helped seal President Trump’s 2016 victory.
Joe Biden (Joe Biden) and former President Barack Obama (Barack Obama) conducted their first joint 2020 campaign in Flint on Saturday afternoon, as they dealt with the coronavirus pandemic. He hit Trump hard and said that it is time to restore the dignity of the White House.
Biden said: “Now is the time for Donald Trump to pack his bags and go home.” “We have resolved the confusion, tweets, anger, hatred and failure. [and] Refuse to take any responsibility. “
Biden thanked Obama for being a “great”
“[We] It has been eight years without a trace of scandal…I am glad to be back to that incident again,” Biden said.
Both Obama and Biden pursued Trump for claiming in Michigan on Friday that doctors deliberately exaggerated the number of coronavirus deaths to make money.
“What happened to this man?” Biden said. “Please forgive my language, but please think about it-it’s perverted. He might believe it because he didn’t do anything other than make money.”
Last Friday, the number of COVID-19 cases in the United States reached a record high. But at a rally in Watford, Michigan on Friday, Trump appeared to blame doctors for the surge in the number of coronaviruses in the United States.
“If someone dies from COVID, our doctors will get more money. You know what, right? I mean our doctors are very smart people. So what they do is, they say,’I’m sorry, But everyone is dying of COVID,'” Trump said. Trump’s comments were quickly condemned by the American Medical Association (AMA) as outrageous.
Obama has been campaigning for Biden on the battlefield, but Flint is the first time they campaigned together during the final battle, which shows how important they are to winning Michigan on Tuesday.
In his speech before Biden took the stage, Obama said: “Joe Biden is my brother. I love Joe Biden. He will be a great president.”
Obama investigated Trump’s handling of the growing coronavirus pandemic and accused the president of holding a super-spreader rally due to his obsession with large crowds.
Obama said: “Trump cares about his ego.” “Joe cares about ensuring the safety of you and your family.”
Obama and Biden established goodwill in Michigan in order to save the auto industry, while the Republican candidate Mitt Romney in 2012 wrote an article titled “Bring Detroit into Bankruptcy.” Obama compared the Republican Party’s efforts to boycott the auto industry with Trump’s “disruption” of the pandemic response, and suggested a new Republican slogan: “Let America get COVID.”
Obama said that Biden will control the epidemic, protect American health care, and restore decency in public office. Obama said of his former vice president: “His body has no vile bones.”
After Flint (Flint) played, Obama and Biden (Biden) will go to Detroit to participate in the rally. Motown legend Stevie Wonder will join them, and his “signature, stamp, and deliver” became the theme song of the 2008 Obama campaign.

If Biden wins Michigan, it will deal a blow to Trump’s reelection. Trump shocked the world in 2016 by flipping three traditional blue states (Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania), and Trump spent another four years in the White House repeating his success in the Midwest.
Michigan is also an important battleground state for the Senate, and Senator Gary Peters (D. Mich.) tried to resist the challenge of Republican veteran John James.
Trump held a rally in the town of Watford on Friday and has been struggling in Michigan. He plans to return to Great Lakes in the rally blitz on Sunday and Monday.
Election Day 3 (indefinitely): Trump, Biden Barstrom swing state
The night before the 2016 election, Trump’s final campaign rally ended at midnight in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In order to revisit history, the Trump campaign said that the president’s last stop in the 2020 campaign will be Great Falls.
Trump defeated Clinton by less than 11,000 votes in 2016.
The Democratic Party tried to spare no effort this time and was striving for a strong turnout.
Obama admitted in Flint on Saturday: “We were a bit complacent in the last election.”
Biden said he learned a lesson from the mistakes Clinton made in the Midwest four years before the campaign.
At an event in Milwaukee on Friday, Biden talked about the experience of campaigning for Clinton in 2016, adding: “For many reasons-not all of them are her fault- [we] Finally did not take it seriously. We think this is different. “
Clinton was criticized for inadequate campaign activities in Midwestern states such as Wisconsin and Michigan. After her disastrous defeat in 2016, many Democrats criticized her campaign for being overconfident and complacent.

In contrast, Biden often insisted that he ignored voting, and said on Friday night in Wisconsin: “I have been here a lot.”
Trump made four stops in Pennsylvania on Saturday.
