Campaign spokesperson Andrew Bates said: “Biden has lived a life of dignity throughout his life. This is a source of strength and comfort during extremely difficult times.”
Trump responded after continuing his efforts to connect Biden with the far left. He claimed in Ohio that the former vice president wanted: “Take the gun, destroy your second amendment, don’t believe in religion, don’t do anything. Things. It hurts God. He opposes God, he opposes guns.”
Biden has long talked publicly about the role his beliefs play in his life, especially during tragic moments. Biden lost his first wife and daughter in a car accident. Later, his son Bo lost cancer. The former vice president often wears his deceased son’s rosary on his wrist, and he has publicly talked about the role his faith plays in keeping him through grief.
“Donald Trump is the only president in our history to apply tear gas to peaceful Americans and drive a priest out of the church so that he can desecrate it-and a bible-for his own cynical optics Means, when he tried to tear us apart in a moment of crisis and pain,” Bates said. “Just after the day when the Trump campaign abused Joe Biden’s photo in church to demean him, this was one of the most obvious weaknesses in the entire campaign.”
Doug Heye, the former communications director of the Republican National Committee and CNN political commentator, questioned the effectiveness of Trump’s attack on Biden.
Heyer said: “We have seen these attacks before, but outside of a small part of the Republican base, they are just ineffective.”
He added: “You have carried out such an extreme political attack, questioning someone’s beliefs, it is destined to be invalid.” He said that such an attack may be counterproductive and even make voters sympathize.
