“What do we stand for? Who are we? When you guys watch on an American border with Mexico children being ripped from the arms of their mothers, what the hell do you think of us?” Biden said. “What does that do to our ability to lead the world, how we are viewed?”

He also said he expected a Democratic landslide in the upcoming midterm elections.

“I predict to you that Democrats will win 40 seats in the house, and I predict to you there is a better than even chance that we win the Senate,” Biden said.
