President Joe Biden returned to his playbook of insults Monday to take shots at former President Donald Trump, criticizing his predecessor’s work on reinforcing U.S. infrastructure.
Speaking at a campaign rally in New York, Biden hailed the accomplishments of the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act that he signed into law in 2021 while saying Trump “didn’t build a damn thing” during his administration.
Speaking at the St. Regis Hotel in a fundraiser hosted by the Black Economic Alliance for the Biden Victory Fund, the president reiterated remarks he said during a Labor Day speech in Philadelphia that Infrastructure Week became a punchline during the last administration. On Monday, Biden said Infrastructure Week became a “joke” under Trump, The Hill reported.
“He didn’t build a damn thing,” Biden, speaking of Trump, said. “Not a damn thing.”
In Philadelphia, Biden said: “The great real-estate builder — the last guy here, he didn’t build a damn thing.”
Biden is in New York for the U.N. General Assembly that is set to kick off Tuesday.
