President Joe Biden took a dig at Donald Trump During a Labor Day rally in Pennsylvania on Monday, blasting the former commander-in-chief as a “great real estate” developer who “didn’t build a damn thing.”
“Guess what? The great real-estate builder, the last guy here, he didn’t build a damn thing,” Biden said during a Labor Day rally in swing-state Pennsylvania.
“Under my predecessor, ‘Infrastructure Week’ became a punchline,” Biden said before touting himself as the champion of American infrastructure.
In contrast, he asserted that during his tenure, infrastructure developments would dominate headlines, highlighting the commitment of $10 billion to Pennsylvania from the federal government’s 2021 bipartisan infrastructure law.
He also hit Trump for shipping jobs to China, saying: “When the last guy was here, you were shipping jobs to China. Now we’re bringing jobs home from China. When the last guy was here, your pensions were at risk. We helped save millions of pensions with your help,” Biden said.

As Biden continued to draw distinctions between himself and Trump, he mentioned that he had been labeled “Middle Class Joe” throughout his career, initially intended as an insult. He proudly embraced the moniker, emphasizing that being middle-class signifies hard work and determination.
“Folks all my time in public office, I’ve been referred to as ‘Middle Class Joe.’ I guess they thought that was uh, somehow not very complimentary,” he said.
“Well, guess what, that’s who I am. And it doesn’t mean you’re not sophisticated because you’re middle class, it means you work like hell. And you know what your family has to work like hell to be able to make it,” said Biden.
“When the last guy was here, he looked at the world from Park Avenue. I look at it from Scranton, Pa. I look at it from Claymont, Del.
