(GoRealNewsNow.com) – Joe Biden used Labor Day to launch a full-scale attack on his most likely rival in the 2024 election, Donald Trump, accusing Trump of a botched economic performance, among many other sins.

Biden delivered his Labor Day speech before Sheet Metal Workers Local 19 union workers in Pennsylvania, a battleground state he hopes to win in 2024 to keep the White House, Newsmax reported.
“It wasn’t that long ago we were losing jobs in this country… In fact, the guy who held this job before me was just one of two presidents in history who left office with fewer jobs in America than when he got elected,” the president declared.
“When the last guy was here, your pensions were at risk. We helped save millions of pensions with your help,” he added.
Biden then bashed Trump as a real estate magnate who didn’t leave anything significant behind and turned “Infrastructure Week” into a punchline for futility, The Washington Times reported.
“The great real estate builder, the last guy, he didn’t build a damn thing,” he said about his predecessor.
“When the last guy was here, he looked at the world from Park Avenue. I look at it from Scranton, Pennsylvania. I look at it from Claymont, Delaware. Not a joke,” the president claimed further.
He stated that the United States had recovered the jobs it lost in the COVID-19 pandemic, returned manufacturing jobs from abroad, and had unemployment under “4% for the longest stretch in 50 years.”
However, the Times emphasized there could be significant “turbulence” for Biden from organized labor if the United Auto Workers union failed to strike a deal with the Big Three Detroit automakers before the deadline of September 14.
“I’m not worried about a strike until it happens. I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Biden said.
Earlier, former President Trump said in a social media video that the current strife in the auto industry was caused by the president’s aggressive promotion of electric vehicles.
“The union bosses don’t want to do anything about it because they’re not leaders. But you know who is voting for me? The people in the union. To every auto worker, I stand in total solidarity with you in your fight against Joe Biden’s job-killing Green New Deal insanity. It’s insanity,” Trump commented.
