Washington: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump does not represent the US, is irresponsible and is making America unsafe, Vice President Joe Biden has said.
This is what he told foreign leaders during his just concluded trip to Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania.
“I Metat a conference with their presidents to reassure them that Donald Trump didn’t represent America,” Biden said at an Electionrally in Ohio where he campaigned for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee.
“Because you know what Donald Trump said? Donald Trump said he’s not sure he’d honour our Natocommitment. No. To protect them if Russiainvaded them. They’re scared to death with good reason that Russiawill cross the border and annex them like they did Crimea,” Biden said.
“These are members of NATO. He said we’re going to check whether they’ve paid all their dues. For the first time he’s causing nations to actually wonder whether or not we’ll keep our word,” the US Vice President said.
“The idea that I ever thought in my career I’d get in the plane to make basically an emergency flight to hold the hands of three presidents from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and say no, no, no. He doesn’t represent Republicans or Democrats on this. Don’t worry. This is the guy who admires Putin. This is the guy who doesn’t know that Russian troops have already come across the border and annexed Crimea,” Biden said.
Biden said Trump was a guy who guaranteed that Putin is not going to invade a country that has already been invaded.
“I guess because his campaign men are getting paid millions of dollars by the dictator who ran the place beforehand,” said the US Vice President, who is considered as the country’s top most foreign policy expert.
Biden said he does not believe Trump is a bad guy.
“I just think he is thoroughly, totally, completely uninformed. He has no idea what the hell he’s talking about,” he said.
He said he has a military aide carrying a briefcase.
“That briefcase has the nuclear codes in it and God forbid if something happens to the president and the decision had to be made I open it up for the nuclear codes are there. Just imagine giving this guy access. Imagine giving this guy access to the nuclear codes. A guy who says how he’s consider using nuclear weapons,” he said.
“The Trump world is already making us less safe. When he stands up there and says, irresponsibly, that everybody here knows is ridiculous, that Barack Obama invented ISIS, you know what happened the next day? The guy who runs Hezbollah, a terrorist organisation, put out on all their networks that the nominee of one of the two largest parties in America who may very well be president soon has admitted that we started ISIS and that he has proof of this,” Biden said.
“If people believe we are supporting ISIS, what do you think happens to our kids in these countries? The man is totally irresponsibly,” Biden said.
