Recent addition to the Fox News contributor team, Donna Brazile, went out of her way to defend 2020 Democratic front runner Joe Biden’s change of opinion on key issues facing the United States, according to Fox News.
During a Wednesday appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Brazile took on Biden’s change in opinion on China. Biden admitted he was “worried” about China after saying that last month that there was nothing Americans should be concerned about when addressing fears about foreign productivity.
According to Brazile, Biden’s most recent position is the correct one:
“It’s a threat that we have to deal with not just by adding pressure but we need our allies on board with us,” Brazile said.
“We need to make sure and that we go into negotiations with the very toughest position. Joe Biden is also right – that we have to invest in our own in order to compete with China in the future,” she continued.
According to Brazile, it could be charitable to overlook the change in opinion, but the former high ranking Democratic leader said that, “When they evolve, we should embrace their evolution,” she said. “Perhaps this is not an evolution in his thoughts but is he explaining it better now.”
As for President Donald Trump’s assessment of the former vice president, she considered it to be an insult that a front runner is not hard at work on the campaign trail.
“He is not sleeping. He’s not, you know, over there on the sidelines,” Brazile said. “He is raising money, he’s putting together a team. Remember, he just came out of the box a couple of weeks ago, unlike the other candidates who have been running for the last three months,” Brazile continued.
This is the second time that Biden’s change in opinion has been in the headlines this week, following a CBS News report, in 1995, after Barr’s time as AG under former President George H. W. Bush and before his time in office under the current administration, Biden was a high-ranking Senator on the Senate Judiciary Committee and Barr was being confirmed to his post as attorney general.
“As I know you know, but others should know, too, I truly enjoyed working with you when you were attorney general,” Biden told Barr, according to CBS News.
“You were one of the best I have ever worked with, and there have been a lot of attorneys general since I have been here, and I mean that sincerely.”
