Former President Donald Trump wasted no time in responding to President Joe Biden’s announcement of his reelection bid, releasing a scathing campaign video in which he accused Biden of a litany of failures, including opening the US border with Mexico and leading the world “to the brink of World War III.”
Trump’s video focused on criticizing Biden’s handling of the economy, citing the “worst inflation in half a century,” declining real wages, and rising gasoline prices, homelessness, and crime as examples of his “calamitous and failed presidency.” He also accused Biden of “weaponizing” law enforcement to punish his supporters and of deferring to transgender activists at the expense of children being “indoctrinated and mutilated by left-wing freaks and zealots.”
On foreign policy, Trump accused Biden of leading the US to the brink of World War III, citing Russia teaming up with China, Iran being days away from a nuclear bomb, and Ukraine being devastated by an invasion that he claimed would never have happened if he were president.
Trump’s rhetoric is not new. He has consistently criticized Biden’s policies and leadership, and his latest video offered no surprises. However, it remains to be seen whether Trump’s record as president will translate into votes in the next election.
Despite recent polls putting Trump narrowly ahead of Biden, an NBC News survey found that most Americans want neither candidate to run in 2024. As the incumbent candidate, Biden can count on the support of the Democratic Party’s establishment, including former President Barack Obama, who endorsed his ex-vice president on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Trump faces a potential primary challenge from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and some polls show the governor outperforming Trump. The next election promises to be a fierce battle, with both candidates likely to engage in heated rhetoric and mudslinging as they seek to win over the American public.
