4. And he's nailing this question about rolling back the Trump tax cuts but not affecting middle class

Itís obvious this guy ask him the question was just rolling out a right wing talking points. But Biden is focusing on the tax cuts to corporations and the wealthy, not rolling back trumps middle class tax cuts

If Trump wins, I cannot imagine what would possibly steer him? The only lesson he learns is to take revenge on his "enemies" after he wins anything. If he wins the election, it will not be good.
