During a speech at the Council for National Policy meeting in Virginia on Friday, President Donald Trump revealed the differences that he sees between Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton.
“Clinton is much smarter but not a likable person,” President Trump said. “Joe is not nearly as smart, but he’s more likable.”
This speech came one day after Biden’s nomination speech at the Democratic National Convention. Trump went on to admit that he would rather face Clinton than Biden in an election.
“So, you know, I don’t know, maybe I’d rather have the smarter person,” he said. “Who cares about personality, right? But that’s the difference. Very simple, isn’t it?”
Trump went on to recall when Clinton demanded in 2016 that he accept the results of the presidential election.
“She should have asked that question to herself,” Trump said. “She’s like a crazed lunatic. She’s a lunatic. She is something, I’ll tell you.”
The president also said that he was overjoyed to see that Biden had chosen Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate.
“That was my number one draft pick,” he said, pointing out that Harris ended her presidential campaign in December before the voting even started in the Democrat primary.
“She didn’t even get to Iowa. She never got there. She didn’t want to take a vote. That’s how bad she was,” Trump said. “Don’t you want to pick a person that’s gone in the opposite direction?”
This comes days after Clinton spoke out to claim that Trump needs to lose in November because he poses a “clear and present danger” to Americans’ freedoms. When asked about former administration officials who have withdrawn their support for Trump, Clinton replied, “I think if we can somehow get the message across that these men and they’re predominantly men, not exclusively, have served our country in peace and war. They have been in that situation room.”
“They have been confronted with the kind of really difficult choices that a president or a national security adviser or joint chiefs of staff or defense secretary has to understand and then decide about, and they’re worried about Donald Trump because as bad as Trump has been for the last three and a half years I don’t know what would happen to our country in terms of the danger to America, the danger to our economy, the danger to our interests around the world if he had no accountability staring him in the face at all,” she added.
