President Donald Trump, who will make a state visit to the United Kingdom next week, is taking heat from comments he made during his recent trip to Japan. Trump said he wasn't concerned about North Korea's latest missile launch, and he agreed with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's remark that former Vice President Joe Biden was a "low IQ individual."

The current storyline in the 2020 presidential campaign goes something like this:

Donald Trump and his allies run a campaign demonizing Democrats in general as horrid, lying socialists who hate America with a passion, who wouldn't be caught dead in a cheap foam hat that says Make America Great Again because they want to destroy it.

During a rally for the Democratic ticket in Ohio on Monday, former Vice President Joe Biden said the violent events of the last week required leaders who could unite the country.

But this was a get-out-the-vote rally. So he criticized the Republican Party for favoring corporations over working people and seeking to gut Social Security and Medicare.

Biden urged people in attendance to reverse Republican control of Ohio government.

It was really not a very good day for the former secretary of state and U.S. Senator who remains (we guess) the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

This week WVXU Political Reporter Howard Wilkinson talks with Maryanne Zeleznik about the tight Presidential Race in Ohio, the Vice President and President coming to Dayton and tonight's debate.

Vice President Joe Biden wrapped up a campaign swing through Southern Ohio Sunday with a stop in suburban Cincinnati. Standing in an atrium at Milford High School, he focused on representing the two presidential candidates as "fundamentally different."

The vice president stuck to familiar themes dinging the Republican party's stance on healthcare - which Biden called "voucher-care", and especially what Mitt Romney had to say about job creation at the Republican National Convention...
