'I like Joe:' Bernie Sanders offers measured criticism of Biden in Iowa

Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden disagree on a central issue Is removing Trump enough

"Joe voted for the war in Iraq, I led the effort against it. Joe voted for NAFTA and permanent trade relations, trade agreements with China".

"You know, when I talked about a $15 minimum wage ... four years ago that was too radical, that was extreme", he said.

But Biden briefly declined, saying "The only place Trump has any confidence is in the mud". "What we've got to show the world is that we can run a serious, primary process without trying to destroy each other, without character attacks".

Former Vice President Joe Biden charged Saturday that Jim Crow is "sneaking back in" as he emphasized the need to ensure voting rights are protected, which he said is lacking under the Trump administration. He recalled saying in 2016 that in high school he'd have "taken him behind the barn and beat the hell out of" Trump.

"We should all be very clear that we're going to come together to defeat the most unsafe president in the history of this country", Sanders said.

But by confronting Biden's voting record, Sanders has made clear that he sees the former vice president as a threat, even though they represent opposite wings of the party.

Klobuchar told reporters after an event in Des Moines, Iowa, that her message would be very different.

Klobuchar also said she was frustrated that congressional investigators haven't been able to question special counsel Robert Mueller, whom she described as "the witness we need to go after Russian Federation so that they don't attack our elections again".

Democrats lose when they go with the establishment candidate. He has previously expressed support for creating a commission to study economic reparations for black Americans.

Former vice president Joe Biden, hitting the campaign trail Friday for the first time since joining a crowded Democratic field of presidential aspirants, has dubbed Trump a "clown". She's a good candidate.

However, he continued, "But look, I think the other thing about Bernie is the other Democratic candidates have cannabilized his views: The Medicare-for-All, the Green New Deal, sort of by-and-large socialist policies that are things nearly every single Democrat in this field has adopted hook, line and sinker and that used to be a very unique component to his campaign".
