Speaking before an Arab audience in this country governed by sheikhs, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden offered his views Tuesday on the "petty, venal and mean" politics in America ahead of the November presidential election.Today, Biden told young Emiratis gathered in Dubai, that means the party offers candidates who say they are going "waterboard people ... and indiscriminately carpet-bomb," an oblique reference to leading Republican candidate Donald Trump.Biden visited the country's Al-Dhafra Air Base on Monday, which hosts U.S. and Emirati troops battling the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria.Despite those close ties, the Emirates and Saudi Arabia remain concerned about Shiite power Iran's influence across the region following the deal it struck with world powers including the U.S. over its contested nuclear program.Biden met with both Sheikh Mohammed and Abu Dhabi's crown prince, Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed al-Nahyan, on the trip.
