Former U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden, if elected to the top government post in 2020, will not independently decide on the possible criminal prosecution of the current owner of the White House, Donald Trump, but will refer him to the Secretary of Justice, who also serves as the attorney general. He made a corresponding statement in Atlanta, Georgia, on the fifth nationwide television debate of candidates for the United States Democratic presidential candidate.
вЂњI donвЂ™t intend to resolve issues related to criminal prosecution,вЂќ the politician said. вЂњThis is not the responsibility of the President of the United States. I will refer all these issues to the Minister of Justice and the Attorney General I have put forward, and if there are grounds for a criminal prosecution, then everything should be carried out under the law. вЂњ
He noted that calls for sending Trump to jail, similar to those that sounded in the ranks of Republicans during the 2016 election campaign against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, are вЂњnot very useful.вЂќ вЂњWe must strive to bring Americans together,вЂќ Biden added.
Meanwhile, if the presidential election were held in the United States today, the current owner of the White House, Donald Trump, would have lost them immediately to three opponents from the Democratic Party.
According to a poll loyal to the president of Fox News, the biggest gap from Trump continues to be maintained by former vice president Joe Biden вЂ” 51% versus 39%. In addition, Biden is supported by 96%, while Trump вЂ” 86%.
Senators Bernie Sanders (49%) and Elizabeth Warren (46%) are also among the top three.
It is curious that in this case, in the ranking of primaries of Democrats, Sanders is inferior to Warren (21% against 19%). At the same time, Biden remains the undisputed leader with 31%.
The fourth of the Democrats, Mayor Pete Butagej, has caught up with the president вЂ” he also has 41%.
