EXCLUSIVE: News Channel 8’s Jen Leigh interviews VP Joe Biden


SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA) – After Vice President Joe Biden campaigned for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Sarasota Monday, he talked exclusively with News Channel 8.

8 On Your Side’s Jen Leigh talked with the vice president about Donald Trump’s taxes. Donald Trump’s business losses in 1995 were so large that they could have allowed him to avoid paying federal income taxes for as many as 18 years, according to records obtained by The New York Times.

They also talked about Florida’s important role in the election. Biden predicted Clinton will win Florida by two or three points.

The vice president then talked about Trump’s comments about Russian President Vladimir Putin. Biden said Trump didn’t realize Russia had seized the Crimean Peninsula. He called it “astounding.”

“I think the more people realize just how unprepared he is, what he doesn’t know, I think that’s going to make that final difference, Biden said.
