Detroit joe biden has now brought. I love joe but- he will be a great program. All amid twelve years ago when. I asked him to serve as the nominee for vice president. I don’t know all that well we’ve served in the senate together but he’d been there a while i was still fairly new. You’re not going to different places we came from different generations. What i can whitmer joe was a man who is decent too is cool. A man who learned early on to treat everybody with dignity. And everybody with respect.
Somebody who live by the words of montana no one better than you joe but you’re no better than anybody. And the decency that empathy. That the everybody. That’s willing to joe wicks. And the good news is that will be what is present because i can tell you some of the presidency doesn’t actually change who you are it just revealed three one. George and i saw. Three to four and i saw that critical as- from his perspective to make sure that the voices of ordinary families were in the room when decisions were being made. And three years joe was the last one in the room whenever i faced a big
decision. He made me a better president. He’s got the character and experience to make us a better club. And he and tom well are going to be in the- not for themselves but for every single one of us. You know what. You can say that about. I’m a lot. Under what another agree with me at thirty one hundred embrace my vision i understood it wasn’t going to continue my policies but i hope that he was going to show some interest in taking the job. Well if you want to press the wrong for president. When you become president the assumption is you are going to take the job search. You’re gonna spend the all the- when you want in the- but- there’s- he hasn’t shown any in doing the work. Or. Cellphones one or two in the presence
as anything more than a real show to give them the attention that you crave so desperately. The rest of us have had to live with the consequences. Almost two hundred bags. Americans have done. More than a hundred thousand small businesses have closed almost three hundred thousand jobs are gone this you have all. America just head it’s single worst week of new cases we’ve been living with this plan for months. And we just. The worst one in terms of incidents. Enamel what is donald trump closing arguments. No people are too focused on. Please complaining. Hello of. But but that’s not enough now he’s starting to accuses doctors okay. They’re making a big deal out of it so they can make more money. You got. Will their- the federal who. Every and then they home they are two groups isolate themselves remove all. Protective
garments. Sure school everything just to make sure they’re all don’t get in some cases don’t get to see their families and he’s the normal to make a buck. He can. Somebody would be willing. To make sacrifices for others. Unless there was some economic motivation that’s how we- no we got to the suffering. So we’re not. Just flat out rather control we noticed. You what what. You can. I guess i’m dating myself remembering the old people do. One hour forty movement. The big funny looking better yours like mine. At least say what we were i was that’s all these guys are.

Well if i were published on covid the beginning. This is one would be reaching new record highs across the country. Some of the places he’s holding well interesting new spikes after he leaves he’s going around having a better. Much bigger lives no mess no protective gear not no precautions. What’s his obsession with crowds anyway. I’m. One in about his inauguration crowd small. Although. There’s nothing better the
world. That was four years ago. What kind of trauma that you go through no one come to his birthday party. This news not giving him enough attention. Lore another difference between joe biden and donald trump right there. Well if you go don’t keeping you safe and your family safe and getting this country moving again. To make sure that every single one of. Look this planned on according to challenger. For any president. But this idea that somehow this white house has done anything but completely screw this up well the facts don’t say either one. One one you can go they’ll remember can go
right now. Gretchen with building a wall the people. But when doing this. Canada identified its worst case is the same way that the u. S. The same thing we- our mortality rate the number of people who does. What happened on. Is two one half times. If we had the same mortality rate as they do then. Around ninety thousand americans would have died which would still be a tragedy but it would be two hundred and thirty thousand if we are able to spend democrat candidate a hundred and forty thousand of our fellow americans might still be alive today. The leadership in the white house matter.
It matters this is not a game is not a contest of the they’ll call each other names this is one of the- this is life or death. The last week one one. Donald trump was would you do anything differently it’s a lot more. But that will occur but you can put bill bennett.

No the most people’s live there you’ve got a plan you’ve got to do the work. This is to get things done joe biden has concrete plans. And policies that will turn our
vision of a better fairer stronger country into reality. Joe biden there’s not going to screw up. He’s not gonna call francisco idiots.

Eric and costly and make sure our frontline heroes. Go to countries with equipment that they need. What i will do. Reporter affected by the end of. I’m not sure that the small businesses that hold our communities together. Unemployed millions of Americans can we open state. Small businesses in every community not the from. But the corporations. Donald trump likes to claim the public the government.
American one point five million more jobs in the last three years of the obama biden administration then in the first three years. Of the twenty. Gretchen thank. That was before he could blame the pandemic. Joe biden worked to rescue the auto industry. There was there. Understood what was at stake he told us about on michigan and we did and manufacturing grown men michigan by 15% over our planet years in the trump. I will make michigan the main bedroom the world. It’s 1% on those for you this been. Fifty the wall. We in the longest streak of job growth in american history.

Actually lose jobs over who. Are a long time ago. Been a lot of president center route. One well during his presidency.

Well joe and i actually put them ten years ago with the affordable care act. We republican votes no one. And republicans tried to repeal or undermine. The for more than sixty times. A why they want to take people’s health care when it’s not clear to me. I
don’t know why you did that kind of. You know what i want to make sure that the person that have health care i don’t know why they would think that way. I’m wondering. About of this phenomenal. We’re going to. Repeal bolton replace it with something even better. Even more beautiful. One one. What do you want this new president came in office zero. This well no. One is the plan one. Nobody can. Hello what is the what the plan was that we gave them the telematic bill. Mr.

consequences to this. The consequences actions bolton people to be me end of this. And race is unafraid. The problems of our society and our lives it affects our children see things and how they interact. It was hello it school in the world works. That’s why george about the slow of america. The more than anything is what separates him from his opponent. He cares about every american not just some any cares about the values. That make this country exception. I know joe biden he does not have a mean spirited bone in his body he cares about everybody store. You want to hear. Everybody’s voice he drives a little bit the values that we cherish honesty and hard work kindness and humility responsibility. Helping out
somebody who’s having a hard time. You know what i want to hear this is this kind of phony macho you know act in tulsa marlin all the time. No that’s not. That’s not what it used to be to be a man of father a leader. Your record all the time called on. Put another people the- and joe understands what. And when you log so that’s what you’ll see reflected in the white. And these should be republican values our democratic values there what are. The what a- what a grandparent’s
house. If what we still try to pass on to our kids. White values are black about user let latino. Or asian or native american. Can. One but. One two. In this country we couldn’t we can leave no doubt we cannot afford to be complacent. Not in the select well what about some of those. Hello i don’t need to bother voters. One is the one before for example on the preferred number might not make a difference. The government. All i to preserving the best for both. It number program for every problem but- exactly. The president can’t solve every economic coronavirus up like people like gary peterson
and brenda lawrence in an- a little small and haley stevens and we get a house in the senate. Groundwork people and getting you the help you need we can but voters can make a difference. Some people do. We bill for the college education. So we’ll be able to go to. When the supreme and get a trade. You know. About president by himself getting limited all racial bias in our criminal justice system election may didn’t did and didn’t make a post racial. But you know what. It if we elected district attorneys and state attorneys insurance focused on the quality of justice and we have a justice
department that reinvigorates the civil rights division it can make things better and then maybe some. What subject to some of the tragedies that we’ve seen over the last few months. And that’s what voters about it’s not about making things perfect. Lawmakers and better. What so that a generation from now we can look back and say you know what. Right about then we turn the corner we started. Back on a better trajectory. The fact that we don’t get a 100% of what we want is not a good reasons not to vote it’s a reason to keep voting until we do get a right. Just over 50% of as well. You’ve got almost half of eligible voters not voting. And so those are the same folks complain. But imagine if 50% of what. 70% of as
