One big talking point that Republicans are hammering against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is that he is a socialist. Vice President Mike Pence has warned that Biden would set America “on a path of socialism and decline.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had already decided to make this election a “referendum on socialism” last year before Democrats had even picked their nominee, recently accused Biden of harboring a socialist agenda. And, of course, President Trump has called Biden a “Trojan horse for socialism.”
Is he? In one sense, yes. But in that same sense, Trump is too.
