Joe Biden: The GOP will ‘have an epiphany’ once Donald Trump is voted out of office

May 14, 2019

Presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden said Tuesday the Republican Party will engage in bipartisanship once President Trump is voted out of office.

“The thing that will fundamentally change things is with Donald Trump out of the White House. Not a joke. You will see an epiphany occur among many of my Republican friends,” the former vice president said, according to CNN.

“It’s already beginning. In the House now, you’ve seen people that in fact were not willing to vote for any Democratic initiative, even if they agreed with it, because they didn’t want to be the odd person out if it wasn’t going to pass. There’s no sense in getting politically beaten for something that’s not going to happen, But you are seeing the talk, even the dialogue is changing,” he said.

Mr. Biden also said the nation “cannot function without generating consensus” and if common ground isn’t reached, all power belongs to the executive office.
