Donald Trump Attacks Joe Biden: ‘I Haven’t Been Involved in Plagiarism’

Trump BidenIn an interview with conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt, Donald Trump said he wasn’t worried about Vice President Joe Biden joining the presidential race and attacked his history of plagiarism.

“If [the Democratic nominee] is Joe Biden, how do you match up against Joe Biden?” asked Hewitt.

“I think I’d match up great,” Trump responded. “I’m a job producer. I’ve had a great record. I haven’t been involved in plagiarism. I think I would match up very well against Biden.”

Then-Senator Biden was accused of plagiarism during his 1988 presidential campaign. After barely weathering a scandal when he used a speech line originally written by the leader of Britain’s Labor Party without attribution, Biden dropped out of the race after it was discovered that he also faced plagiarism allegations at Syracuse Law.
