Donald Trump: 'Corrupt Media' Will Save Joe Biden from Plagiarism Scandal

Biden's website contains similar language: "Carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) is a rapidly growing technology that has the potential to create economic benefits for multiple industries while significantly reducing carbon dioxide emissions".

The Biden campaign admitted afterward citations of some of the materials were "inadvertently left out" of the final document.

"Joe Biden has made an entire career out of plagiarizing", McDaniel tweeted.

"His other problem is that he is drawing flies, not people, to his Rallies", he wrote. "You can't win without people!" Greenpeace, which recently released a scorecard ranking Biden second to last among Democratic candidates, called the outline "a critical step forward", but spokesman John Noel added that if Biden "wants to become a leader on climate, he needs to outline a plan to phase out fossil fuels".

An ambitious climate change plan released by former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday was amended soon after it was released because a few passages did not correctly credit sources for the information.

Was Joe Biden pressured by progressives to change his tune on climate change?

Biden's first bid for the presidency in 1988 was derailed when instances of plagiarism in campaign speeches and during law school came to light.

At the time, Biden said the incident at Syracuse University was a matter of him not knowing the proper way to document sources.

Caught in a pile of lies, the campaign responded with a strikingly similar excuse: "To the degree it wasn't attributed, it was an oversight or inadvertent", Biden's 1988 campaign aide told the New York Times.

'Four decades in public life and there's always one constant. The candidate complained the fuss over his plagiarism was "much ado about nothing", and blamed rival campaigns for blowing the issue out of proportion.

In a paragraph about carbon capture, the former vice president's plan-which has since been updated with citations-read: "Biden's goal is to make CCUS a widely available, cost-effective, and rapidly scalable solution to reduce carbon emissions to meet mid-century climate goals".

Biden's events have attracted sizable crowds, but not almost to the extent of the large-scale rallies that Trump's campaign holds on a regular basis.

But David Axelrod, a Democratic strategist and architect of Obama's 2008 campaign, was skeptical that the errors in his climate policy proposal will affect his front-running campaign. 'The challenge for the campaigns and the press is to decide which is which'.
