The 2020 Presidential Election will come down to just a handful of states.
Democrats are now panicking about their chances in the battlegrounds that will determine if Donald Trump wins re-election.
And that’s because Joe Biden committed this gaffe that destroyed the Democrats in swing states.
The Democratic party is out of touch with the American people.
They flaunt their so-called ideals of equality, while leaving most of the population in the dust.
Their policies help the elite line their pockets, while normal everyday workers struggle to survive under their policies.
And this latest fumble by Joe Biden just made the Democratic party lose blue-collar workers’ votes for good.
Joe Biden spoke out at a recent campaign rally in New Hampshire, suggesting that mineworkers should give up the jobs and careers they have worked so hard for, and learn to program or code.
BIDEN: “Anybody who can go down 300-3,000 feet in a mine sure as Hell can learn how to program as well’

Chris Hamilton, co-chair of the West Virginia Coal Forum, responded to the presidential candidate’s out of touch statements later that week.
“It’s just inconceivable how someone, particularly in his position could advocate putting tens of thousands of working Americans out of work. But it comes as no surprise. Former Vice President Biden has repeatedly demonstrated his disdain for mining and for our coal miners,” said Hamilton.
“Listen, these coal miners absolutely love what they do and they recognize the importance and value. It’s a very honorable profession. Our miners are very highly skilled at what they do. They do it with great pride and sophistication and they’re technologically advanced so, Vice President Biden is correct in that regard,” he continued.
These statements come on the heels of other controversial remarks the former Vice President has recently made.
According to Fox News, Biden made these remarks in the recent presidential debate:
Moderator Tim Alberta asked: “Three consecutive American presidents have enjoyed stints of explosive economic growth due to a boom in oil and natural gas production. As president, would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth, even knowing potentially that it could displace thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers in the interest of transitioning to that greener economy?”
“The answer is yes,” the former vice president said.
But Biden also states that these displaced workers will have to learn an entirely new set of skills. The issue with this plan is that these workers will be competing with a younger job market, one that grew up in the technological age and ones who have degrees in their field.
This is yet another example of the left not caring about anyone who does not fit their political agenda and plan for this country.
