Biden asserts Trump could trigger surge in anti-Americanism

WASHINGTON (AP) — Warning of a potential surge in anti-Americanism, Vice President Joe Biden is tearing into Donald Trump’s views on foreign policy and urging the country not to follow the presumptive Republican nominee down a path of isolationism and bigotry.

Biden plans to deliver a point-by-point rebuttal of Trump’s ideas on immigration, terrorism and relations with Russia during a speech Monday to the Center for New American Security. In excerpts released in advance by the White House, Biden cautions against policies he says would make the U.S. poorer, less democratic and less secure.

Biden’s speech to the Washington think tank will be his most concerted and lengthy rebuke to date of Trump. It comes as he and President Barack Obama are increasingly inserting themselves into the election in hopes of stopping Trump.
