【编译/观察者网史雨轩】

  特朗普与乌克兰总统泽连斯基的“通话门”将民主党候选人拜登推上风口浪尖,近期其民调大受影响。10月6日晚,拜登在《华盛顿邮报》发表专栏文章,声称特朗普“无法摧毁我,也摧毁不了我的家庭”。拜登认为特朗普已经“够了”(Enough is enough),“每一天都有更多证据显示特朗普在滥用总统权力。”

    《邮报》认为,近两周来拜登阵营举步维艰。拜登针对特朗普极具攻击性的言论表明,他正在转换策略,试图重新赢得忧心忡忡的支持者和竞选资助人的信任。

  拜登刊文之际,也让自己阵营支持者越来越担心,他还没准备好应付双重挑战,一方面要对抗特朗普,还要面对激烈的民主党初选。

  最近几次民调中,马萨诸塞州参议员伊丽莎白·沃伦数据让拜登黯然失色,上周拜登公布上季度只筹集了1520万美元,比沃伦和桑德斯少了近1000万美元。民主党迟迟不援护拜登,也让他的支持者们感到愤怒。

  当地时间周六(5日)晚,拜登竞选团队向记者们分发副竞选经理贝丁菲尔德(Kate Bedingfield)的备忘录,备忘录主题体现了这位民主党主要候选人的双重挑战,“拜登的竞选活动将打击特朗普,同时关注这些问题。”

  备忘录说,“此次竞选将继续关注影响人们生活的问题,同时抨击特朗普前所未有的滥用权力,我们将纠正特朗普及其盟友散布关于拜登的谎言。”

  贝丁菲尔德阐述了团队将采用的三种策略,指出特朗普指控不准确、反击特朗普,以及讨论选民最关心的问题。

拜登文章摘译如下

  似乎每一天,每隔几小时,就有更多证据显示特朗普在滥用总统权力,他完全不适合当总统。特朗普利用国家最高职位推进个人政治利益,而不是国家利益。

  这是如此让人愤慨,很明显,他认为当总统是个自由通行证,可以做想做什么就做什么,无须负责。

  特朗普不理解所有担任美国总统的人要承担的巨大责任。他只看到了权力,以及如何只让自己受益。

  众所周知,美国首任总统乔治·华盛顿不会说谎,特朗普总统却什么真相都说不出来,他诽谤任何自己认为是威胁的人。

  这就是为何特朗普疯狂散布彻头彻尾的谎言,编织阴谋论,抹黑我和我的家人,毫无疑问,特朗普想破坏我竞选总统的资格。

  特朗普一遍遍重复他那玩世不恭的剧本(cynical playbook)。但这次不会成功,因为美国人民了解我也了解他。我将把自己正直的公共服务生涯奉献给国家,对抗特朗普的不正直。

  一切都归咎于滥用权力,这是特朗普总统任期的决定性特征。

  我们现在知道,特朗普滥用美国外交政策,企图从多个国家获取政治利益。他直接要求三个外国政府干预美国选举,其中包括我们最大敌手之一(greatest adversaries)的俄罗斯。

  特朗普腐化了他的政府机构——包括国务院、国家安全委员会、司法部和副总统办公室的工作人员,以达到其个人政治目的。我们还知道,白宫里特朗普周围的人认识到他的到他的大错特错,这些人还得加班加点地掩盖特朗普的恶行。

Joe Biden: Trump won’t destroy me, and he won’t destroy my family

By Joe Biden 

Oct. 5, 2019 at 8:26 p.m. 

Joe Biden, the former vice president, is seeking the Democratic nomination for president. 

  Enough is enough. Every day — every few hours, seemingly — more evidence is uncovered revealing that President Trump is abusing the power of the presidency and is wholly unfit to be president. He is using the highest office in the land to advance his personal political interests instead of the national interest.

  The president’s most recent violation of the rule of law — openly calling for China to interfere in our elections, as he stood on the South Lawn of the White House — is so outrageous, it’s clear he considers the presidency a free pass to do whatever he wants, with no accountability. 

  He does not understand the immense responsibility demanded of all those who hold the office of the president of the United States. He sees only the power — and how it can benefit just one person: Donald Trump. 

  Our first president, George Washington, famously could not tell a lie. President Trump seemingly cannot tell the truth — about anything. He slanders anyone he sees as a threat. That is why is he is frantically pushing flat-out lies, debunked conspiracy theories and smears against me and my family, no doubt hoping to undermine my candidacy for the presidency.

  It’s the same cynical playbook he returns to again and again. But this time, it won’t work, because the American people know me — and they know him. I will put the integrity of my whole career in public service to this nation up against Trump’s lack of integrity any day of the week.

  It all comes down to the abuse of power. That is the defining characteristic of the Trump presidency.

  We now know he has abused the foreign policy of the United States in an attempt to extract political favors from multiple countries. He has directly asked three foreign governments to interfere in U.S. elections, including Russia, one of our greatest adversaries, and China, our closest competitor. He has corrupted the agencies of his administration — including the State Department, the National Security Council staff, the Justice Department and the office of the vice president — to do his personal political bidding. We also know that the people around him in the White House recognized just how profoundly wrong it was and worked overtime to cover up Trump’s abuses.

  Thankfully, someone had the courage to blow the whistle. In America, not even the president is above the law. That’s a founding principle of our nation and our system of government. 

This isn’t just an academic exercise in political theory. A president who puts his self-interest ahead of the public good and the nation’s security poses a threat to the daily lives of every American.

  Just days after the House of Representatives opened an impeachment inquiry against him, Trump hosted the president of the National Rifle Association in the Oval Office. Did they discuss the common-sense gun-safety legislation the nation so desperately needs? No — they talked about how the NRA can help reelect Trump.

  He’s so deep in the pocket of the fossil fuel industry, he’s literally sacrificing the planet’s future for personal political gain. He pulled out of the Paris climate agreement and froze fuel economy standards the Obama-Biden administration put in place for cars, and he’s preventing California from implementing its own higher standards. He won’t even acknowledge the climate crisis that he is making worse every day. 

  In his phone call in June with Chinese President Xi Jinping — in addition to seeking his involvement in our election, which he then publicly repeated — Trump reportedly sold out the people of Hong Kong, who for months have been rallying in the streets for the democratic rights they are owed. 

  America’s word and our standing in the world are in free fall because of the actions and incompetence of this president. 

  It is easy to be distracted by Trump’s daily outrages — to become obsessed with them or numb to them, or to normalize behavior that Americans would not have tolerated in any of the previous presidents in the nation’s history. Not me. While the House does its job on impeachment, I’m going to stay focused on what matters: remaking education so every child in the country is equipped to succeed in the 21st century; getting weapons of war off the streets and ending the epidemic of gun violence; building on Obamacare so that every American has access to quality, affordable health care; taking on the climate emergency imperiling the planet; and much more. I’m going to fight to ensure that the United States is once again the leader of the free world; a champion of democracy; and the bulwark of a stable, peaceful international order. 

  And to Trump and those who facilitate his abuses of power, and all the special interests funding his attacks against me: Please know that I’m not going anywhere. You won’t destroy me, and you won’t destroy my family. And come November 2020, I intend to beat you like a drum.
