Biden didn’t stop there, but instead became more passionate and dug in harder against the billionaire businessman. “I know why we are strong. I know why we are held together. I know why we are united: It is because there has always been a growing middle class. This guy does not have a clue about the middle class. Not a clue.”

The audience immediately picked up on the phrase and started chanting “Not a clue! Not a clue! Not a clue!”
