At the Iowa State Fair, politics is a main attraction

At the Iowa State Fair, politics is a main attraction

Biden, who in 2006 drew criticism with a comment about Indian-Americans moving to DE, the state that Biden represented when he served in the U.S. Senate, also told a crowd at the Iowa State Fair that "we choose science over fiction".

President Trump called-out Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden from the White House lawn Friday afternoon; saying the former Vice President was "not playing with a full deck".

We should challenge students in these schools that have advanced placement programs in these schools.

Speaking at an event sponsored by the Asian & Latino Coalition PAC in Iowa, the former vice president said, "We have this notion that somehow if you're poor you can not do it".

"I believe everything the president's said and done encourages white supremacists", Mr. Biden said as Mr. Trump continued to take criticism for his handling of back-to-back mass shootings.

After a brief pause, he added: "Wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids". He quickly realized what he had said and tried to correct himself, but the damage had already been done. "In both clear language and in code, this president has fanned the flames of white supremacy in this nation".

"It just hurts me to see what some people are saying about him", said Linda Robinson, a retired health care worker who heard Biden speak in Boone, Iowa.

Biden's remark came during a campaign appearance late Thursday.

Biden, infamously, kicked off his campaign by invoking Trump's rhetoric in the aftermath of the deadly 2017 "Unite the Right" rally in Virginia, calling the president out for his sympathetic words toward neo-Nazi supporters. He did not refer to the gaffe - or Trump's response - but in one indication of the risk for Biden in going off-script, he used a teleprompter, despite the rural setting and delivery of his standard stump speech.

"We can't and I will not let this man be re-elected president of the United States of America", Biden said, to extended cheers and applause. "Even when they fake it, the truth about how they feel about us is blatant".

Biden and Buttigeig were speaking at the Wing Ding dinner in Iowa, once a low-key fundraiser that served up chicken wings and raised money for Democratic candidates and nearby county parties.

Tweeting while heading to El Paso for a condolence visit, Mr Trump also said he watched Mr Biden's speech and declared it "Sooo Boring!"

The poll was conducted over the first five days of August, just after the Democratic Party's second presidential debates in Detroit, Michigan. That was not my intention and I expressed that to Sen.
