President Donald Trump accuses Joe Biden of wanting to end all private health insurance, quadruple taxes, and quickly impose sweeping lockdowns due to fear of the coronavirus.
The Democratic nominee, in fact, stands for none of that.
Faced with sagging poll numbers less than a week before Election Day, Trump is offering misleading and exaggerated claims about his opponent as he tries to energize his supporters at back-to-back rallies in key battleground states.
At times, Trump’s attacks are inconsistent and appear designed to elicit jeers from his supporters rather than make a genuine distinction from his own policies. At some rallies, Trump has called Biden a puppet of socialists, while other times saying he’s controlled by Wall Street donors. He has accused Biden, a practicing Catholic, of being “against God.”
