We looked at some of the statements Biden made during these stops and the facts behind them.
During a campaign speech in Michigan focused on its production and union support, Biden said the US trade deficit had reached a record high in the current administration.
“Under President Trump, the US trade deficit has widened,” Biden said. “It has reached an all-time record. Let me say it again. The trade deficit in the United States is at its peak of all time, under Trump in the last three years.”
Facts first: Biden is wrong. While the trade deficit has widened under Trump, measuring both goods and services, the overall trade deficit has not reached a record for all time under Trump. Measured only with goods, however, Biden is faithful. However, he did not specify that he was talking only about goods.
The deficit widened under Trump, reaching $ 576.9 billion in 2019, despite Trump’s promises during the 2016 campaign that he would reduce it.
The United States has not seen a trade surplus in goods and services since the 1970s.
Facts first: Biden leaves an outstanding context, not to mention the efforts of President George W. Bush.
“We’re not going to punish anyone,” Biden told several steelmakers in Michigan on Wednesday. “No one who earns less than $ 400,000, which is more money than I’ve ever made, will have to pay more taxes.”
Facts first: Biden has earned more than $ 400,000, albeit in the last few years alone.
The only other year Bidens made over $ 400,000 was in 2013, when they won $ 407,009.
Otherwise, the applicants would withdraw less than $ 400,000 each year, which would cover additional taxes under his plan.
“My son agreed to go – as an assistant to the US Attorney in Philadelphia – to go to Kosovo. He was there for six months,” Biden told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “They erected a monument to him, thanking him for the service, I think the only American they did it for. And was it a shoot?”
A year after he died of brain cancer, Kosovo erected a monument and renamed the highway after Bo, who served as legal counsel to help rebuild the judiciary in the war-torn area in 2001.
“Kosovo has a long history of naming roads to US officials in honor of US participation in the country’s independence from Serbia in 2008. Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush have named roads after them.”
