PITTSBURGH – Accusing President Donald Trump of "poisoning" the nation's values, Joe Biden condemned violence at recent protests Monday and blamed Trump as the battle over who's to blame and who can keep Americans safe emerged as the sharpest dividing line for the campaign's final weeks.
Biden, in his most direct attacks yet, accused Trump of causing the divisions igniting the violence, delivering a blistering speech and distancing himself from radical forces involved in altercations.
He said of Trump, "He doesn't want to shed light, he wants to generate heat, and he's stoking violence in our cities. He can't stop the violence because for years he's fomented it."
