It is a known fact that since elections are coming, each party criticises the other for various comments. That is why it is necessary to think twice before we speak, especially at such times. Recently Joe Biden has criticised Trump for calling India ‘Filthy.”
Joe Biden Criticizes Trump
Joe Biden has criticised our U.S President in the last face-off at the presidential debate. Just a few days before the U.S selects its next leader. He said “President Trump called India “filthy.” It’s not how you talk about friends-and it’s not how you solve global challenges like climate change”, he tweeted referring to Kamala Harris.
“@KamalaHarris and I deeply value our partnership-and will put respect back at the centre of our foreign policy,” he further added.
Donald Trump Statements
Look at India. It’s filthy. The air is dirty,” he said. At the same time, many on social media were angry at such a statement. Many commented that it has once again highlighted the central issue in India- Air Pollution. Trump’s remarks came ahead of a visit by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Mark Esper to New Delhi for talks.
Joe Biden Hits Trump
Joe Biden on Sunday morning wrote a blog on trump’s connection with the Indian American community.
“Four years ago in November, one of the last events I hosted at the Vice President’s residence was a Diwali reception. Here I was, an Irish Catholic Vice President opening my home for a holiday traditionally observed by Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, and Jains, and that night joined by Muslims, Christians, and Indian Americans of various backgrounds representing the diversity of the diaspora. In the shadow of a devastating and dark election, we gathered together for the festival of lights and new beginnings,” he recalled.
“We found hope and a sense of belonging in each other. That’s the America that we love and, four years later, that is what our campaign is about. I’ve always felt deeply connected to the Indian American community because of the values we share: duty to family and elders, treating people with respect and dignity, self-discipline, service, and hard work,” he further stressed.
“The truth is, President Trump doesn’t share our values. As a result, today’s America doesn’t feel like the America of our dreams,” he added.
Well, we will see the results on November 3rd as the people will vote to elect the next President.
