Joe Biden’s campaign for president isn’t going well.
He joined the campaign on top, as the clear leader, but has since fallen.
And now he is running scared after one secret went public.
Nothing was more devastating for Joe Biden than the first round of Presidential debates.
Being on a stage with his opponents made him a prime target of attacks.
After all, he is a career politician, who has been in the Senate for decades.
He has been a member of the Democrat Party through a number of radical changes.
Back when he first got into office, the Democrats were somewhat reasonable.
They supported secure borders and didn’t have whack job socialist policies.
But now they are so far left that his former record is creating issues for him.
And there are also a number of issues that are completely inexcusable, like his former support for segregating school buses.
That position is only causing him more problems after he praised two segregationist Senators.
And there is also his son, Hunter, who has a lot of personal problems, and whose business deals in Ukraine are causing headaches for the former Vice President.
But now he has another problem that he needs to face.
The release of his tax returns shows that Biden has made $15 million since leaving office as Vice President in early 2017.
This is a big change for somebody who has for decades painted himself as “Middle-Class Joe,” taking in little more than his government salary.
But due to his status as a former Vice President, he has come across a lot of opportunities to make it rich.
Among those is a $4 million dollar book deal, $2.7 million in business-related income, a salary of $425,000 from CelticCapri Corp, $540,000 as a professor of the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania, and another $8 million multibook deal.
Biden has also found a way to profit directly from his status, having Secret Service pay him $171,600 to rent a guest house on his property so they can protect him.
This is far from meeting his reputation as a middle-class guy.
He is now firmly in the ultra-rich.
And it isn’t just him bringing in massive amounts of money.
His wife, Jill, has brought in an additional $700,000 in speaking fees.
To put all of this into perspective, the Biden family income was $400,000 in 2016, only to become $11 million in 2017.
Very few people can ever expect to make this sort of money.
But it isn’t the money that is the problem.
President Donald Trump made the case for becoming president on his vast wealth.
It is the fact that Biden is only rich due to his status as a former Vice President.
These are going to be questions Biden will have to answer, and if the first presidential debate is any indication, he will have a lot of trouble doing so.
Do you think Joe Biden can beat Trump in 2020?
