President Donald Trump on Thursday night showed how much he’s accomplished in just 3.5 years and how little Joe Biden has in his 47 years as a politician, said Tommy Hicks, co-chair of the Republican National Convention.
”Joe Biden’s been in Washington for 47 years. President Trump has been there for 47 months and he’s accomplished more than Joe Biden could ever dream of,” Hicks said during an appearance on Newsmax TV following the second and final presidential debate in Tennessee.
”I think Joe Biden came off as a politician – a mile wide and an inch deep and this president showed how much he’s accomplished in just 3.5 years.”
Hicks was referencing an exchange between Trump and Biden on the 1994 crime bill sponsored by then-Sen. Biden that earmarked billions for new prisons and encouraged states to keep criminals behind bars for years by offering special grants.
The legislation also instituted a federal ”three-strikes” life sentence mandate.
Biden on Thursday said his support for the bill was a ”mistake.”
Trump responded: ”You keep talking about all these things you’re going to do, but you were there just a short time ago and you guys did nothing. You know, Joe, I ran because of you. I ran because of Barack Obama, because you did a poor job. If I thought you did a good job, I would have never run. I ran because of you.”
