Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday compared Donald Trump to former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, NBC News reported.
“He embraces dictators, he is more like, he’s more like Castro than he is like Churchill,” Biden said. “He keeps talking about – he has no, no affinity whatsoever with what average Americans are worried about and what they’re concerned about.”
As reported by Fox News, Biden made the same comparison earlier in the day.
“Trump has more in common with Castro than with Churchill. Look who he admires. He admires Putin, he admires Xi, he admires everyone who behaves in an authoritarian way.”
According to Biden,he is the “exact opposite” of Trump has has “faith in the democratic system.”
As noted by the publication, Biden’s comment was made to many Spanish-speaking Florida residents who arrived in the state after fleeing from communist regimes, including Castro’s Cuba. Biden is currently attempting to gain support from Hispanic voters ahead of the election and in the wake of a recent NBC/Marist poll that showed Trump narrowly ahead of him with the demographic.
In 2016, Hillary Clinton gained 66 percent of the Latino demographic while Trump gained the support of just 28 percent, NBC News reported. According to the publication, Biden is struggling to gain the same degree of support.
According to Biden, his appearance is a play to gain inroads with the Spanish-speaking community.
“I will talk about how I am going to work like the devil to make sure I turn every Latino and Hispanic vote.”
In a piece for CNS News, Craig Bannister noted that Barack Obama attended a baseball game with Fidel Castro’s brother, Raul, who at the time served as Cuban President amid Republican calls that he return to Washington following the Brussels terrorist attacks. Notably, Obama did “the wave” with the leader, who now serves as First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba, as the pair watched the Tampa Bay Rays face the Cuban national team.Dong-A Ilbo / Getty Images
Trump has faced frequent criticism for his apparent affinity for dictators like Kim, Russia’s Vladimir Putin, and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud. Per The Inquisitr, MSNBC legal analyst Maya Wiley previously claimed that Trump wants to be a dictator and said that the president believes he can run the United States in the same way as he ran his private businesses. The analyst noted that private sector businesses could be lead in a unilateral manner akin to dictators — but the public sector cannot.

Chelsea Clinton Says Its Unconscionable That Donald Trump Lied To The American Public About COVID
Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton appeared on The View Tuesday morning, and during her appearance, she slammed President Donald Trump for not telling the country the truth about COVID-19.
Cohost Joy Behar asked Clinton how much of the blame the president deserves for his response to the coronavirus pandemic. The former first daughter unequivocally stated that she blamed Trump fundamentally.
“I think it’s unconscionable that he lied to the American public about COVID. That he’s continued to lie to the American people. That he’s had such blatant disregard for public health and of the advice from public health experts, that’s pretty uniform around things like masks, the continued importance of social distancing, how much safer it is to be outside rather than inside, how important good ventilation is. I mean things that we have known for months.”
Clinton also noted that the U.S. now knows that Trump knew about the pandemic in February or even as early as January. She put the full blame for the problems that the country still has with the novel coronavirus on the president. Her discussion referenced the bombshell revelation from journalist Bob Woodward’s book Rage. During his conversations with Woodward, Trump revealed that he knew early this year that the virus would be deadly, and the journalist released the tapes earlier this month.Bennett Raglin / Getty Images
Then, Clinton also listed the things that the country still doesn’t have more than half a year into the pandemic. She listed several things that President Trump could do now to continue preparing for the future of how the U.S. will deal with COVID-19. They included preparing a transparent national plan for ensuring that a safe and effective vaccine is rolled out to those who need it most like healthcare workers and the highest risk Americans. She wanted to see Trump work to create support for a vaccine and build an army of people to help administer it to everyone.
Ultimately, she summed up that she blames Trump for his initial downplaying of the virus, for continuing to disparage health advice, and for failing to prepare people for the upcoming vaccination.
“I think there’s a lot of blame for the president and his administration for where we are and where we still need to be,” she said.
In addition to discussing Trump’s failures in how he’s handled the crisis, during her appearance on The View, Clinton discussed her new children’s book, She Persisted In Sports, which is a followup to her previous book called She Persisted.
