President Donald Trump lambasted Joe Biden as a "Trojan horse for socialism" Monday from during a speech in Oshkosh, Wis., telling supporters gathered at an airport tarmac near Air Force One that 2020 is the "most important election we've ever had."
“He’s a Trojan horse," Trump told his supporters, reports Fox News. "He has no clue, but the people around him are tough, and they’re smart...Joe Biden is the puppet of left-wing extremists trying to erase our borders, eliminate our police, indoctrinate our children, vilify our heroes, take away our energy."
Trump had been expected to call Biden the "most dangerous candidate to seek the office of the presidency in our lifetimes," according to a copy of Trump's speech obtained by Fox, but the president moved off script, slamming Biden and telling voters that it won't be Biden running the country if he and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris are elected.
"We'll save our cities and our suburbs from the future of crime and chaos, corruption and economic collapse that puppet Joe Biden would unleash on America," Trump said. "This is a puppet. He won't do it intentionally...He just says, well, whatever they want, because he has no clue."
He added that Biden and Harris are "pro-crime and anti-cop" and that "no one will be safe in a Biden-run America...we're anti-crime and we are pro-cop all the way."
Trump also touted his economic record, saying the country, under his leadership, has witnessed "the fastest economic recovery in the history of our country."
The president also said the success his administration has brought for the military has been "incredible," while Biden has promised to "slash our defense budget, destroying critical jobs. But more importantly, if we don't have defense everything we talk about is meaningless."
Trump Monday also said he wanted to counter "lies" from the Democratic National Convention and warn about the party's "socialist" tendencies.
Biden, he added, will "take away our energy if you can believe it," if he's elected. "No fossil fuels, destroy our Second Amendment, attack the right to life and replace American freedom with left-wing fascism."
