Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee blasted former Vice President Joe Biden, calling him an “opportunistic politician” in an opinion piece published Friday.

The former GOP Republican candidate for president penned an article for the Daily Caller where he states that Biden “is in no position to lecture President Trump about empathy.”

He called Biden out for abandoning “millions of American workers during his lengthy career in Washington.”

He wrote that Trump won the election in 2016 because “he recognized the plight of formerly ‘forgotten’ Americans” and slammed Biden for recently insisting that Trump doesn’t empathize with them.

  1. Seriously, Trump has profiteered on his position. Mnuchinwon’t release the records. Republican party are forced to ave events at his properties. The beleaguered president of ukraine made sure to tell Trump in the infamous “perfect phone call” that he stayed at his hotel. Erdogan does business with Trump’s partner that’s why the Honorable Erdogan gets what he wants from Trump. Everything is transactional wit Trump.

    • Republican party is not financed by tax revenue. That is why the Republican party can supply religious events for the President (which it does every December) without violating the separation of Church and State. So where it holds its private events paid by private funds is not relevant to anything. But why wouldn’t backers of the President want to help the President’s business with their own private funds?

      • When he forces pence to stay at his properties even wen it is inconvenient is. That secret service has paid over billion dollars to protect him and his family does especially when he makes all stay at his properties. You can’t be this foolish. He still has not paid back the cities for the police protection. King of saudia arabia books rooms at his hotel but doesn’t say there but makes sure to let Trump know he stayed at his hotel.

    • > president of ukraine made sure to tell Trump

      That is because since taking office Trump doesn’t know and doesn’t care (and doesn’t have time to know) who is staying at his hotels. That is, until the media broadcasts it out telling him.

      • You make no sense. Every country did a psychological prfile of Trump and know what makes him tick. He was advised by Trump people to say this. Seriously stop drinking the kool aid. You migt want to read CREW FILINGS and how they go about getting to the truth.

      • Ever since he first took office, President Donald Trump has been charged with using his position to profit off the presidency, as foreign leaders stay at Trump Organization properties while the president himself ferries back and forth to the “winter White House” and Trump properties around the world. And while the Trump administration has been understandably cagey about just how much taxpayer money is funneling into the Trump Organization’s pockets, we now have a somewhat better idea when it comes to one major charge. Following reports earlier this year that the Trump Organization has charged the Secret Service as much as $650 a night to stay at Trump properties when accompanying the president, the Washington Post reported Thursday that those hefty hotel bills have so far added up to nearly a million dollars—at least.

        According to reports obtained by the Post, American taxpayers have paid the Trump Organization at least $970,000 for more than 1,600 room rentals since Trump took office—which amounts to “the equivalent of more than four years’ worth of nightly rentals at Trump properties.” “Almost all” of the payments have been for trips taken by the president, his family members, and top officials, and have paid for rooms for Secret Service agents or staffers, rather than the Trump family themselves. The payment total marks a sharp increase from the $628,000 the Post had found as of March, after the publication found an additional $340,000 in room payments. And the number still could be an undercount, as in the absence of publicly-reported information on the charges from the federal government or Trump Organization, the Post notes that their data is “still incomplete.” “It’s not just that there’s a huge amount of money being spent: we have no idea how much the actual figure is,” Jordan Libowitz, of the nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, told the Post. “We don’t know what’s happening … only that the taxpayers are footing the bill for it.”

        The expensive bill is a far cry from what the Trump Organization claims it charges the federal government, with Eric Trump—who’s running the business while his father occupies the White House—claiming the company charges the government “at cost” for their hotel rooms. “If my father travels, they stay at our properties for free,” Eric Trump said at a Yahoo Finance summit in October 2019. “So everywhere that he goes, if he stays at one of his places, the government actually spends, meaning it saves a fortune because if they were to go to a hotel across the street, they’d be charging them $500 a night, whereas, you know we charge them, like $50.” Those supposed $50 charges were nowhere to be found by the Post, however, whose reporting found no per-night charges less than $141.66, which was to rent a cottage at Trump’s Bedminster property. The figures found by the Post run far higher than the typical operating cost of hotel rooms at luxury hotels, hotel industry experts told the publication. “I wouldn’t expect it to be north of $100,” Cornell School of Hotel Administration professor Chris Anderson told the news.
        The Trump Organization’s room charges are out of the ordinary when it comes to the presidency, the Post notes, with the only past president or vice president to have charged the government rental costs being former Vice President and current Trump opponent Joe Biden. The former vice president charged the Secret Service a total of $171,600 over the course of six years for a cottage near Biden’s Delaware home—an amount that Trump had exceeded by March 17, 2017, less than two months after he took office. And the room rentals are just one of many costs when it comes to Trump’s trips to his properties, which the Post notes he’s visited 250 times since taking office. (Thanks to the coronavirus, the president has stayed put since March 8, though the Trump Organization still hasn’t managed to totally escape possible conflicts of interest in the meantime.) Though the full extent of how much the president’s trips cost the federal government is still largely unknown, the Government Accountability Office found that Trump’s first four trips to Mar-a-Lago in February and March 2017 alone cost government agencies approximately $13.6 million, and the Post projected in February 2019 that the president’s Mar-a-Lago trips to that point had likely cost taxpayers more than $64 million. (For comparison, former President Barack Obama racked up nearly $97 million in total travel costs over the span of eight years.)
        Trump’s pricey golf trips also aren’t the only instance of the president possibly using the office to his financial advantage—and the issue could make its way to the Supreme Court. A federal appeals court ruled Thursday that a lawsuit accusing Trump of violating the Constitution’s emoluments clause can proceed, after the president’s legal team tried to have the case dismissed. The lawsuit, brought by the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia, takes aim at the Trump International Hotel in D.C. and the foreign and state government officials who patron it, which the A.G.s allege is an instance of Trump illegally profiting off the presidency. The Justice Department says that it will ask the Supreme Court to hear the case—though in the meantime, Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh told the Post the ruling is “a strong ruling against the president” and for the rule of law. “It clearly held that he is not above the law, that like every other citizen he is subject to the Constitution and the laws of the United States,” Frosh said.

        Also, he so doesn’t care, that is why he paid Baron’s boyscott dues from his trust, that is why he settled with nyc, because he doesn’t care, it is also why he called and harrassed Forbes to put him on the billionaire list, that is why he doesn’t want to release his taxes. BECAUSE HE DOESN’T CARE.

    • You are delusional and suffer a great deal from TDS plus from Corona virus OCD, There is not a shred of evidence that Donald Trump profited one dollar from his presidency the opposite might be true that his businesses lost out because of his presidency.
      But one this thing is a fact that the Biden family became rich off of Joe Dementia’s corruptness.

    • Have you seen Obama’s and the Bush’s and Clinton’s? Would you give all the money you earn to charity like Trump did as POTUS?

    • Diane Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and many more Democcrats became all wealthy on the taxpayers account.
      Why are you worried about Trump’s taxes?
      He didn’t become wealthy on your account.
      He made his money before he became the President of the US.

  2. the American LEGAL citizens were treated very good by President Trump for the past 3 1/2 years – he got many good things done in favor of Americans – JOBS, ECONOMY, SECURITY, ETC. ETC. – until CHINA sent the US the bio-chemical war to try and destroy the American economy, but it ain’t gonna help because Americans will
    VOTE FOR TRUMP FOR FOUR MORE YEARS OF PROSPERITY!!!!!!!!!!!1
