Trump Derangement Syndrome remains alive and well within the Democrat Party. As the various candidates compete with one another to win their party’s nomination, they are also taking their own shots at President Trump. Of course, this is nothing new; since the inception of the president’s time in office, the Democrats have been out to get him. Americans have seen this via phony investigations and baseless calls for impeachment.
Frontrunner Joe Biden is currently attempting to stay relevant in the world that is politics. He’s already taking multiple hits, even from members of his own party. The former vice president also didn’t do so well in the first primary debate, seeing as his support from Democrat voters dropped down by a whopping ten points. At this time, Biden is looking to regain favor from the left-wing and has chosen to go after the president, as documented by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
A Closer Look at Biden’s Statements on Trump
During Biden’s latest interview with CNN, he accused President Trump of racism and alleged that Trump lacks a proper “values system.” When the former vice president was asked about whether or not he fears Trump, Biden answered with the following remarks:
“He’s the bully that I knew my whole life. He’s the bully that I’ve always stood up to. He’s the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid that I stutter and I’d smack him in the mouth.”

Response from President Trump
When asked by the press about Biden’s assertions of “bullying,” the president refuted Biden’s statements. Trump maintained that he isn’t a bully and doesn’t take too kindly to America being taken advantage of. Furthermore, the president added that Biden has done a poor job with foreign policy deals pertaining to China.
Fear and Politics
Biden may very well have convinced himself that he is not scared of President Trump. Regardless of whether or not this is true or false, it really doesn’t matter. Before Biden even gets to run against the president, he will first have to win the Democrat nomination.
Over the past few weeks, Biden’s lead has lessened and his support amongst left-wing voters has taken a nosedive. In light of this, one might argue that the frontrunner’s time would be better spent trying to win over his own party, as opposed to taking cheap shots at President Trump in the press.
