Trump declares Sanders 'history' as Biden surges in polls

Former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden spoke Saturday during a rally in Philadelphia

Former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden spoke Saturday during a rally in Philadelphia

After a month of modest events at union halls and pizza joints in early-voting states like Iowa, Biden is counting on making a splash at a rally in Philadelphia, the largest city in must-win Pennsylvania, a state Trump snatched from Democrats in 2016.

Democratic presidential candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden accompanied by his wife Jill waves during a campaign rally at Eakins Oval in Philadelphia, Saturday, May 18, 2019.

"Their trips - Biden on Saturday, Trump on Monday - elevate an emerging rivalry that has them locked in a wrestler's grip long before Democrats even choose a nominee", adds the article. I believe it is only he who can put the USA back on the path of development. (1) someone who can beat Trump, and (2) someone who would actually be a good/ great president.

But he also chided other Democratic presidential candidates in the field, suggesting that anger toward Trump within his party was not enough to win next year's presidential election.

"I don't believe it", he will tell the crowd, adding that he is running for president to offer Democrats and Republicans alike a "different path" towards unity.

He also suggested that former Vice President Joe Biden would have a hard time beating him, since voters elected Trump as a response to former President Barack Obama. During the Obama administration, Biden took the lead on China policy, and he was widely criticized for not condemning China over its military islands in the South China Sea.

The former vice president kickstarted his presidential bid with a call for fairness and equality in the United States, requesting voters to end the partisan conflicts and pettiness that has left Americans miffed in the recent past.

Iran dismisses possibility of war amid USA tensions
The order relayed on Saturday by USA diplomats in Kuwait and the UAE came from an FAA Notice to Airmen published late on Thursday. An Iraqi oil official also confirmed on Saturday that Exxon Mobil had evacuated its foreign staff from an Iraqi oilfield.

After the vice presidency, he launched the Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Before Mr. Trump's poll-defying victory in 2016, the last Republican to carry the state was President George.

Trump will hold an event of his own on Monday in northeast Pennsylvania.

Prior to Biden's speech, the Republican National Committee in a release pointed to statistics showing how Pennsylvania's economy has improved during Trump's presidency.

Since getting into the race, Biden has taken the top spot all polls of the Democratic field, according to FiveThirtyEight's poll tracker. Trump is correct that Obama made Biden the powerful force he is today, and to the extent that Trump was a rejection of Obama's legacy, Biden will struggle to beat Trump.

As voters start paying more attention, Biden - who to date has campaigned mostly in broad strokes - will be under pressure to flesh out policies on everything from health care and wages to immigration.

With Biden the clear front-runner, those attacks are likely to intensify.

"You will not hear me speak ill of another Democrat", Biden said.
