The account did it again on Tuesday.
Facts First: The Trump campaign’s tweet was highly deceptive. Biden was directly quoting Pope Francis when he posed these questions — and then the former vice president immediately answered the questions.
Here’s what Biden said: “In a recent encyclical, Pope Francis warns us against this phony populism that appeals to ‘the basest and most selfish’ instincts. He goes on to say: ‘Politics is something more noble than posturing, marketing, and media spin. These sow nothing but division, conflict and a bleak cynicism.’ He said for those who seek to lead, we do well to ask ourselves, ‘Why am I doing this? Why? What is my real aim?’ Pope Francis asked the questions that anyone who seeks to lead this great nation should be able to answer. And my answer is this: I run to unite this nation, and to heal this nation. I’ve said that from the beginning. It’s badly necessary.”
