JOE BIDEN/SOCIAL SECURITY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Today, America is facing a new moment of extraordinary suffering and economic calamity. It is a moment that impels us, perhaps more than any in recent memory, to strengthen our commitment to Social Security and the promise for which it stands — to protect the most vulnerable and help every American family guard against uncertainty and loss.

Instead of rising to the moment, President Trump is threatening to sever that sacred promise. Last week, from his golf course in New Jersey, he issued an executive order to ‘terminate’ the funding Social Security relies on. Since then, he’s only doubled down — vowing in no uncertain terms to end Social Security as we know it if given another term in office.”
