The claim: Biden owns four homes worth $3M million-$7.5M million

With the election just days away, Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s adversaries continue to push false narratives about his finances to try to raise doubt around “Middle Class Joe’s” trustworthiness. 

“Bidens 4 3.7.5 million-dollar homes on a 200k a year salary,” a reads meme posted to Facebook Oct. 20.

The meme shows four of Biden’s current, temporary and previous homes, most of which cost less than $3 million. But Biden has not made a senator’s salary for more than a decade, and hasn’t been vice president since 2017.

Fact check: Image shows home Joe Biden bought for $185,000 in the mid-1970s

Posts on Facebook showing an aerial photo of a large house with a pool and extensive grounds have the following caption: “The salary of a U.S. Senator is $174,000 per year. This is Joe Biden’s house… seems legit.” The posts imply that the Democratic presidential nominee and former senator purchased an opulent home on a senator’s salary. These claims are missing key context. Though Biden did once own the property in the photo, he bought the run-down property over three decades ago for less than $200,000, and sold it for $1.2 million in 1996.

Biden’s plan would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 6.6 million tons by 2025 versus 263 million metric tons for the Green New Deal over the same period, according to analysis from Carbon Switch, which advocates for energy efficiency.

The difference largely boils down to the rate at which each plan calls for weatherizing homes. The Biden plan calls for weatherizing 2 million homes over 4 years. The Green New Deal’s call for a 10-year mobilization to upgrade all homes would require weatherizing 8 million homes a year compared to

The claim: Joe Biden lives in a large estate bought on a senator’s salary

Since before the 2016 election, critics have asked to see President Donald Trump’s tax returns to no avail. Several weeks ago, the New York Times reported Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016 and 2017, heightening critics’ suspicions about Trump’s finances and financial dealings. Now, Eric Trump is using an aerial photo of Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s former home to raise questions about Biden’s finances.

“The salary of a U.S. Senator is $174,000 per year. This is Joe Biden’s house…. seems legit,” Eric Trump shared on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram Oct. 17.

However, Eric Trump’s claim is false: Biden no longer

When my sister Maya and I were growing up, we lived two doors down from Regina and Arthur Shelton, a wonderful couple who ran a day care and after-school program out of their home. Because our mother was raising us mostly on her own, and was still at work when we came home from school in the afternoons, we would go straight to the Sheltons’ house. Mrs. Shelton became a second mother to us. We became family to each other.

9 Gun and Ammo Stocks to Buy If Biden Wins

InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

By arguably most measures, President Donald Trump is done for. Whether you look at the polls or Trump’s meltdown during the debate or his novel coronavirus infection, it’s getting ugly for Republicans. Given that Joe Biden has a much stronger lead than former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did back in 2016, it seems the former vice president has this in the bag. And that would be great for gun stocks.

However, no one should be too comfortable with the prospect of a Biden victory before it happens. First, according to Inan Dogan, Republicans apparently have a penchant for sandbagging opinion polls.

So far during debate season, the only sentence related to housing issues was uttered last Wednesday night during the vice presidential forum by Democratic vice president contender Senator Kamala Harris.

The 2020 presidential campaigns have largely focused on the crisis surrounding the novel Coronavirus pandemic and its staggering toll of over 210,000 American lives lost across the nation. But that health and jobs crisis could turn into a housing crisis soon. National housing advocacy groups forecast a major eviction and homelessness crisis ahead due to the unemployment rate and millions of dollars in unpaid rent debt. Harris
