Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden slammed former presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in a message to Wisconsin voters who are worried about socialism.

FOX 11 WLUK's Kia Murray asked Biden to address the camera during an interview in a message to voters about socialism and tax increases.

"If you could address our camera directly, talk to the voters that are worried about socialism and you raising taxes," Murray said.

Touting his own political record, Biden used the opportunity to slam Bernie, who is known for his socialist ideology.

"First of all, I guarantee, a promise, I've never broken my word, anyone making less than $400,000 will not see one single penny in their tax raised," Biden said. "Number two, I beat the socialist. That's how I got elected. That's how I got the nomination."

Biden also invited voters to look at his career, as well as elaborated on his tax policy.

"I'm not trying to punish to anybody, but the idea that 19 corporations making billions of dollars pay zero and taxes? The idea you can be making a billion dollars or millions of dollars like Donald Trump did and acknowledge when he opened up a casino in New Jersey, they had to show us tax returns, he paid zero taxes," Biden said. "And what did he say? When they asked him how did you feel about it, he said it just proves I'm smarter than everybody else. He knows these guys know how to game the system, the gaming is going to be over when I'm elected."
