On Thursday, former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden came out with his new plan to "Buy American."
Sounds familiar, right? Well according to President Donald Trump, Biden is plagiarizing off of him.
“He plagiarized from me but he can never pull it off,” President Trump said while speaking to reporters. “He likes plagiarizing. It’s a plan that is very radical left but he says the right things because he’s copying what I’ve done. But the difference is he can’t do it, and he knows he’s not doing that.”
The president continued by saying that while he has cut federal regulations on the American people, Biden will enact more.
“He can’t do the same because he’s raising taxes way too much; he’s raising everybody’s taxes. He’s also putting tremendous amounts of regulations back on, and those two things are two primary reasons that I created the greatest economy we’ve ever had and now we’re creating it again,” President Trump said.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Biden on Thursday rolled out a $700 billion economic plan that would spend $400 billion on a federal “Buy American” project, as well as $300 billion on research and development of technologies such as electric vehicles, 5G cellular networks and artificial intelligence. The “Buy American” plan would create at least 5 million new jobs in “manufacturing and innovation,” according to an outline provided by the campaign, which touted the “largest mobilization of public investments in procurement, infrastructure and [research and development] since the second world war.”
The former vice president is well aware that Trump’s major strength is the economy, at least before the coronavirus swept the nation and cost more than 40 million Americans their jobs. Biden’s plan, dubbed “Build Back Better,” is an effort to hit Trump directly on his strongest issue.
Even the far-left New York Times is acknowledging that the “Buy American” idea belongs to President Trump.
“In some ways, Mr. Biden was seizing the ‘Buy American’ message from Mr. Trump himself, who campaigned on an ‘America First’ agenda in 2016 and wrote on Twitter on his Inauguration Day that ‘Buy American’ and ‘Hire American’ were ‘two simple rules’ that would guide his administration,” The Times reported on Friday.
The "plan" from Biden came during a campaign stop at a metalworks factory in Dunmore, Pa.
“I do not buy for one second that the vitality of American manufacturing is a thing of the past,” Biden said. “When the federal government spends taxpayers’ money, we should use it to buy American products and support American jobs,” Biden said.
He also took ironically took shots at President Trump while he simultaneously stole the idea.
“Throughout this crisis, Donald Trump has been almost singularly focused on the stock market, the Dow, the Nasdaq – not you, not your families,” he said. “If I am fortunate enough to be elected president, I’ll be laser-focused on working families.”
