Trump hit at Biden during his rally in Winston-Salem, as supporters whistled and cheered.
He called the Obama-Biden administration’s Trans-Pacific Partnership a “job-killing catastrophe.”
“For half a century, Joe Biden shook hands with blue-collar workers, and then he turned around and immediately stabbed them in the back,” Trump claimed.
“Biden supported NAFTA, China’s entry into the World Trade Organization, TPP, the South Korea disaster deal and mass amnesty for illegal aliens. Think of it,” he continued.
Trump also took the chance to attack Harris, saying she would be an “insult” as the first female president, The Hill reported.
“People don’t like her. Nobody likes her,” Trump said.
“She could never be the first woman President.
“That would be an insult to our country,” he added.

Also at his rally, signs reading “Peaceful Protester” were handed out.
“We’ve decided to call all our rallies peaceful protests,” Trump said, as he hit at “rioters” in Democrat-run cities.
He added: “My heart is with the hard working patriots of all backgrounds who build up our communities, not the violent criminals and extremists and agitators and anarchists who burn them down.”
Trump again slammed Biden, alleging he “condemns law enforcement”.
“Instead of standing up to the far-left rioters, Biden condemns law enforcement and condemns America,” Trump said.
Despite Trump’s claims, Biden’s Deputy Campaign Manager, Kate Bedingfield, previously maintained that Biden has condemned violence at demonstrations across the nation.

“He came out right after George Floyd was killed back in May, said there’s no place for violence,” Bedingfield said of Biden.
“He said it forcefully again this week,” she said, just days after a gunman opened fire at a Kenosha protest, killing two and injuring another.
“That’s certainly not true,” she added, shooting down claims that Biden did not condemn violence.
