(FOX NEWS) – Former Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday launched his 2020 campaign with a rally that put unity and bipartisanship at its core, calling on the country to put aside “angry” politics — though he saved plenty of barbs for President Trump.
“Our politicians, politics today traffics in division and our president is the divider-in-chief, but he’s not the only one, far from it,” Biden said in his address in Philadelphia. “He’s just the worst practicioner of politics that singles out, scapegoats and demonizes.”
“Our politics has become so mean, so petty, so negative, so partisan, so angry and so unproductive,” he said. “Instead of debating our opponents we demonize them. Instead of questioning judgements, we question their motives. Instead of listening, we shout.”
In the speech, he made reference to the angrier rhetoric coming from his fellow primary rivals and distanced himself from it.
