‘Shameful’: Biden responds to Trump’s baseless claim about his faith

Donald Trump received widespread criticism for claiming that his Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, is “against God” and would “hurt God” if elected president in November.

Biden, a devout Catholic, responded with a heartfelt response denouncing the president’s baseless and “shameful” attack.

“Like so many people, my faith has been the bedrock foundation of my life,” he said. “It’s provided me comfort in moments of loss and tragedy, it’s kept me grounded and humbled in times of triumph and joy. And in this moment of darkness for our country — of pain, of division, and of sickness for so many Americans — my faith has been a guiding light for me and a constant reminder of the fundamental dignity and humanity that God has bestowed upon all of us.”

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee went on to say that such remarks are “beneath the office” Trump currently holds “and it’s beneath the dignity the American people so rightly expect and deserve from their leaders.”

A Biden campaign statement similarly excoriated Trump for the personal attack as well as his behavior while in office.

Campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said Biden has lived his faith “with dignity his entire life, and it’s been a source of strength and comfort in times of extreme hardship.”

He went on to say that Trump, in comparison, “is the only president in our history to have tear-gassed peaceful Americans and thrown a priest out of her church just so he could profane it — and a Bible — for his own cynical optics as he sought to tear our nation apart at a moment of crisis and pain.”
