While lone Indian American Senator Kamala Harris labeled Trump as “petty” and “self-involved” former Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal accused Biden of running “on normalcy and nostalgia while quietly promising to enact radical policies.”

“There’s something about Donald Trump that is just the antithesis of what we want as an American leader, and as our president,” said Harris, who is a frontrunner to be Biden’s running mate, on MSNBC.

“We want a president who has a generosity of spirit. There’s nothing about Donald Trump that is generous,” she said suggesting “he is just becoming more and more petty as we get closer to an election.”

While over 150,000 people have died in the last few months due to covid-19 and as many as 30 million people are jobless, Harris said, “we have someone who is so self-involved, instead of someone who is lifting up the spirit of the American people.”

Trump’s nature too “does not reflect what we, I think, as a country know is actually an example of strength,” she said, “It actually shows that he’s quite weak.”

Jindal, on the other hand, suggested Biden is trying to duplicate House speaker Nancy “Pelosi’s profitable 2006 midterm technique of creating the election a referendum on an incumbent Republican president mired in controversy.”

However, voters ought to take into account that “Biden quietly guarantees to be essentially the most radical president in US historical past,” he wrote in an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal titled, ‘The Biden Bait-and-Switch.’

Jindal, who himself was a candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, said “Trump is blamed for the coronavirus and the violence plaguing America’s cities.”

“Biden reassures voters that Trump is an aberration and denies the necessity for them to think about, a lot much less deal with, the reputable frustrations that triggered so many ‘deplorables’ to help him,” he said.

“The media portrays Uncle Joe as a well-recognized face, dependable statesman, and recognized amount in distinction with the unstable Trump,” he said.

“In actuality, he guarantees to be essentially the most liberal president in historical past,” Jindal suggested. “Voters searching for a return to normalcy would get a radical new future as an alternative.”
