Joe Biden, the fFormer Vice President of the United States said that we are living in “one of the most dangerous times in modern history,” before attacking the administration of US President Donald Trump for taking advantage of “pain and change.”

The veteran senator continued to accuse the current government of the United States of letting down working-class voters who supported the Trump during his campaign for the election.

“I think it’s one of the most dangerous times in modern history,” Biden addressed a crowd at the Miami Book Fair.

Biden continued: “Do you think [Trump] really cares about the kids I grew up with in Scranton, Pennsylvania, as far as their economic well being?”

Biden said that the President and his advisors of taking advantage of “pain and change” and pushing “half-baked nationalism,”  in a thinly veiled reference to Steve Bannon, the former White House strategist.

“I think that there have always been voices in our country — and particularly in the 19th and 20th century in Europe — that have always tried to take advantage of pain and change,” Biden added.

Earlier this week, the former US vice president made similar comments.

“The journey of this country has always been: When we run into this phony populism that occurs, it always gets pushed back,“ Biden addressed a crowd in New York City.

“It’s one step back, three steps forward.”
