Are Joe Biden and Kamala Harris socialists?

Claim: President Donald Trump and other Republicans have claimed that former vice president Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris are socialists and their policies are socialist policies.
Rating: This claim is FALSE. A socialist agenda would be one that dismantles private businesses so that the government would control production. Biden’s actions during the Obama presidency, as well as his detailed policy proposals as a presidential candidate, does not show that he wants to get rid of private businesses. Instead, it shows an equal focus on expanding public programs such as Medicaid and education, while working with private companies in areas like healthcare and renewable energy.
