Biden says Trump making America less secure, less respected

Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden speaks at the Iowa Federation of Labor convention, Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2019, in Altoona, Iowa.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Vice President Joe Biden is criticizing Donald Trump ahead of the president's visit to the Group of Seven summit in France, saying Trump is engaged in an "irrational and self-defeating campaign to make America less secure and less respected in the world."

Biden says Trump's criticism of Denmark and other NATO allies is not only embarrassing but is "making the American people less safe."

The scathing statement from the president's would-be Democratic rival comes hours before Trump's departure for the G7 summit in Biarritz.
