Joe Biden calls Bernie Sanders 'a socialist' - and points out that he beat him as Democrat tells swing voters at town hall that he WON'T swing far left (on day senator hits trail in crucial Michigan)

 Joe Biden pointed out that he beat 'a socialist' - a dig at his former rival Bernie Sanders - as he tried to tried to capture the vote of Florida's swing state voters with Cuban and Venezuelen roots.  

'Look, I'm the guy that ran against a socialist,' Biden said at Monday night's NBC News town hall. 'Remember, I got in trouble with the whole campaign, 20-something candidates? Joe Biden was too centrist, too moderate, too straightforward. That was Joe Biden.'

Biden's retort came the same day that Sanders was back on the campaign trail for the Biden-Harris ticket, stumping for the former vice president in Michigan. 

Joe Biden pointed out that he had beaten 'a socialist' in the Democratic primary when asked Monday night at a town hall in Miami about some of President Donald Trump's claims that the Democrat was in allegiance with the 'radical left'

On Saturday, Sanders also spoke on Biden's behalf in New Hampshire, where the Vermont senator has neighborly appeal. 

Sanders beat Biden in New Hampshire during the Democratic primary earlier this year. 

But on Monday night, Biden was keeping the self-proclaimed democratic socialist at an arm's distance, as he was asked what a young man could tell his family who have been targeted by President Donald Trump's messages that the Democratic nominee 'is a vote for the radical left and socialism and even communism.' 

As he has in previous speeches Biden responded with a, 'I look like a socialist?' 

He then pointed out his primary win over Sanders. 

Biden then turend to his international relations experience.  


'I have taken on the Castros of the world. I have taken on the Putins of the world. I have taken on all these dictators. I haven't cozied up to them,' Biden said. 'I'm the guy that's been straightforward with them.' 

'I'm the guy that let them know, it stops here. It stops with me. It stops with me as president,' the ex-veep continued. 

Biden was clearly alluding to Trump's cozy relationship with Putin, in which the president said he never brought up topics like Russian bounties in Afghanistan on American soldiers.  

'I am no more a socialist than - or a communist than - Donald Trump is. Well, I won't say it,' Biden said, after he already did. 

'Anyway, so they need not worry. Just look at the record. There's not one single syllable that I have ever said that could lead you to believe that I was a socialist or a communist,' Biden said.
