The Democratic candidate recalled the Nazi propaganda chief and said he expects “personal attacks” in the face-to-face meeting on Tuesday.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said Saturday that he expects “personal attacks and lies” from Donald Trump in his first televised debate on Tuesday, and compared the Republican president to Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels.

“It will be difficult,” the former vice president acknowledged in an interview with the MSNBC television network.

“My guess is that it will be just attacks. It will be mostly personal. That’s the only thing he knows how to do,” he said of the 74-year-old Republican president.

Tuesday’s debate in Cleveland, Ohio, will mark the first time the 77-year-old politician has faced the president he seeks to dethrone. Both candidates will then be measured two more times, before the elections of November 3: October 15 and 22.

But some of his supporters fear that Biden, who is prone to making mistakes, may waver in these televised duels in front of the rhetorical blows the Republican tycoon, who is much more aggressive.

But Biden, who has not participated in major campaign events for now, amid the coronavirus pandemic, is confident that he can stand up to the president when they are on camera and under questions from moderator Chris Wallace, news anchor of the Fox News network.

“He doesn’t know how to debate the facts. He’s not that smart,” Biden further said. “He doesn’t know much about foreign policy, he doesn’t know much about domestic politics. He doesn’t know much about the details.”

In short, the Democrat predicted that “it will be mostly personal attacks and lies.”

Trump has never stopped scoffing at his rival’s lack of dynamism, whom he nicknames “Sleepy Joe” and attacking his mental acuity.

“He’s like Goebbels,” Biden countered. “If you tell the lie many times, you keep repeating it, repeating, repeating, it becomes generalized knowledge,” he remarked.

“People know that the president is a liar,” Biden said.

“It’s not that it’s going to be a surprise. And that’s why I’m prepared to go out and make my case for why I think it has failed and why I think the answers I have to give will help the American people and the American economy, and help us. they will make it safer internationally, “remarked the former vice president of Barack Obama.

On the other hand, Biden assured that his campaign is “doing well with Hispanic voters” and that he is investing resources so that his proposals reach this community, since, in his words, “the United States cannot prosper if Hispanics do not prosper” .

The Democrat, who according to the latest poll conducted by NBC, the newspaper The Wall Street Journal and Telemundo He has 62% of the Latino vote in his favor compared to 26% for Trump, He stressed that the current president has treated this community as second-class citizens.

In a list of examples, Biden recalled the actions taken by Trump in Puerto Rico after the passage of Hurricane María, and highlighted the situation of Latinos in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, one of the communities most affected by infections.

“He is not doing much to help them (Hispanics) at all,” stressed the former vice president of Trump’s work.
