Joe Biden, former vice president and Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, Slams President Donald Trump for his comment on India’s air pollution.
Biden on October 24th said that he and his running mate Kamala Harris deeply value America’s partnership with India.
“President Trump called India ”filthy”. It”s not how you talk about friends and it”s not how you solve global challenges like climate change,” Biden said in a tweet, two days after Trump, during a presidential debate accused China, India and Russia of not taking care of their “filthy” air.
“Look at China, how filthy it is. Look at Russia. Look at India. The air is filthy,” Trump said during the final presidential debate with Biden in Nashville, Tennessee.
“The Obama-Biden years were some of the best we’ve ever had between our two countries. A Biden-Harris administration will build on that great progress and do even more. We can and should be natural allies,”as reports Biden wrote in the op-ed.
“That’s why if elected President, I will continue what I have long called for: The US and India will stand together against terrorism in all its forms and
work together to promote a region of peace and stability where neither China nor any other country threatens its neighbours,” he said.
“We’ll open markets and grow the middle class in both the United States and India, and confront other international challenges together, like climate change, global health, transnational terrorism and nuclear proliferation,” Biden further added.
