Justin Taylor, a Democratic Mayor from the critical swing state of Pennsylvania, wagered there would be a “huge victory and huge numbers” for President Trump while hammering how Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has done little for American workers.
Taylor, who serves as Mayor of Carbondale, Pennsylvania, told the War Room: Pandemic show that he feels President Trump will win a resounding victory in the upcoming election, emphasizing that under Biden, the Democratic party has drifted too far to the left.
“I see a huge turnout, a huge victory, huge numbers for Trump, and I honestly see that across the commonwealth and across the nation,” Taylor commented while noting there would be “more and more” Democrats who felt “abandoned” by the party.
Taylor went after Biden, emphasizing it was “insulting” that Biden insisted he was an advocate for Pennsylvanian workers:
“What really has he done for Northeastern Pennsylvania? What really has he done, specifically for Scranton? It’s somewhat insulting to say he’s the native son of this area when he’s been gone for so long, and again has really not implemented any practices or initiative that would have helped the industrial nature of Scranton and Lackawanna County and Northeastern Pennsylvania at whole the entire time he’s been in elected office.”
Taylor continued rebuking Biden, noting he doesn’t stand for Pennsylvanian values of “God, family, country, and work”:
“For Northeastern Pennsylvania, it’s God, family, country, and work. I don’t see any of that really from Biden. I don’t see that from the Democratic party anymore. They’re the party of every other alternative opinion and no longer the party of the working class.”
Taylor suggested that Biden is representative of a broader trend of the Democrats, insisting that the party doesn’t advocate for “working people”:
“I’ve been a Democrat my whole life. My grandfather sat me down at 18 and said you’re going to be a Democrat because the Democrats are for the working people. I have a little boy. He’s going to be two in a couple of months, and I can’t, at this point, sit him down in a couple of years and say you’re going to be a Democrat because they’re for the working people. I can’t have that same conversation with him.”
The Democratic Mayor also pointed out the hypocrisy of Catholics supporting pro-choice Democrats, remarking Joe Biden is “not the candidate of Scranton”:
“I’ve always actually been very surprised at the amount of die-hard Democrats who are also die-hard Catholics that would be able to support a Democrat who was not only pro-choice but pro-abortion. Those were in complete conflict. I mean the greatest advocate for our area for so many years was Governor Casey so many years ago because he was a pro-life Democrat, and that was the candidate of Scranton not the Joe Biden of today.”
