Trump says ‘socialist’ Biden is a PUPPET of Castro lovers like Bernie Sanders and AOC


DONALD Trump lambasted Joe Biden as a "puppet" of "Castro-lovers" like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday and accused the former vice president of being "weak" on socialism.

The Republican president blasted the Democratic nomineeBiden for his support from Colombian politician Gustavo Petro, a former militant socialist Trump branded a "loser."

"Joe Biden is a PUPPET of CASTRO-CHAVISTAS like Crazy Bernie, AOC and Castro-lover Karen Bass," Trump tweeted.

"Biden is supported by socialist Gustavo Petro, a major LOSER and former M-19 guerrilla leader."

Trump asserted that Biden is "weak" on socialism and "will betray" Colombia before proclaiming to the South American country: "I stand with you!"

During an interview with CNN Español, Petro said in August that he'd vote for Biden "without the slightest doubt" if he was able to cast a ballot in the US.

Journalist Juan Carlos Lopez asked Petro: "Did you endorse Joe Biden as a candidate for president of the United States?"

"Well," Petro replied, "if I could vote, which I cannot, I’m not a citizen of the United States."

"But if I could vote in the United States, in the interest of my Latin-American people, I would vote for Biden, without a doubt,” he added.

Earlier on Saturday, Trump accused Biden of betraying black and Latino Americans, claiming that Democrats have only delivered "calamity."

The president made the comments from the White House balcony during his first in-person event since his coronavirus diagnosis last week.

The event was branded a protest on law and order by the White House – but critics have slammed the event as a "rally."

"Democrats have run nearly every inner-city in America – and I mean for 100 years – and their policies have delivered nothing but calamity, poverty, and trouble," Trump claimed.

He added of his Democratic rival: "Sleepy Joe Biden betrayed black and Latino voters."

“I think we’re gonna swamp them by so much,” Trump said of Biden and his running mate, California Sen Kamala Harris.

"We cannot allow our country to become a socialist nation," Trump said.
