Joe Biden: Trump Has 'Belittled' and 'Degraded' Women 'His Whole Life'
Former Vice president appeals to influential women Democrats
Presidential hopeful Joe Biden attempted to appeal to Democratic women at a party conference by attacking President Donald Trump for his 'track record' with members of the opposite sex.
Biden, who is currently being weighed by accusations of corruption with his son Hunter Biden, attempted to shift focus onto the president's relationship with women.
"I don’t think it's an exaggeration to say that Donald Trump not only is a president who has belittled women and degraded them his whole life, he is now going beyond that and striking at the heart of our democracy," Biden said Thursday.
Biden, who is neck-and-neck with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in the poll, called the Trump administration "the single most corrupt ... in all American history," saying it was "rotten to the core."
Trump is now subjected to Democrats-led impeachment inquiry over whether he leveraged U.S. military aid with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to blackmail him to dig up dirt rt on the Biden family's corrupt dealing.
"Trump's entire life has been built on the abuse of power," Biden said Thursday.
"I think the American people are finally onto him ... He's got another year in office — maybe."
The former Vice president also took a swipe at Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.
"Giuliani, God bless him, reminds me of that old line from Voltaire. Voltaire said, 'I have never made one prayer to God ... O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it,'" Biden said.

Last week, a top Ukraine government official announced during a press conference that he has documentation that proved Biden was paid $900,000 to lobby for his son, Hunter Biden's Ukranian company, Burisma.
Ukrainian MP Andriy Derkach is calling for the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the allegation that Biden received the vast sums of money from Burisma for lobbying activities, according to Ukrainian news agency Interfax.
Derkach told Ukrainian media that he has documentation to back up his claim, and says he will upload it to his Facebook page.
"This was the transfer of Burisma Group's funds for lobbying activities, as investigators believe, personally to Joe Biden through a lobbying company," Derkach sais in a statement.
