Former Vice President and potential 2020 candidate Joe Biden unloaded on doomed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on Monday, saying her unfocused campaign didn’t explain her policy positions “that affect the middle class.”
Biden was speaking with NBC’s ‘Today Show’ when he was asked to weigh-in on the 2016 presidential election, pressed on whether he was blindsided by Trump’s surprise victory last fall.
“All the pundits, the press, the campaigns themselves thought this was turning into a Hillary Clinton win. What did you see? Was it just a gut feeling?” asked Matt Lauer.
“There was no discussion of the issues. I thought at first that [Trump] was making so many mistakes. Then I realized that […] only four percent of all the coverage of Hillary was about the issues,” said Biden.
“She didn’t get a chance to get her message out. Nobody can tell me what her position was on issues that affect the middle class. How were we going to pay for child care? How are we going to make sure that they have access to education?” the former Vice President said.
“It’s on the nature of the way the campaign was run,” he added.
