The president’s campaign is beginning to paint a picture of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden as a puppet to “far-left socialist Marxist Democrats.”
President Trump’s campaign adviser Lara Trump said as much on Tuesday, July 21, to host of Breitbart News Daily, Alex Marlow.
“People know who Joe Biden is, but they don’t know about Joe Biden,” she said. “They don’t know what policies he’s stood for throughout the tenure he’s had in Washington, DC as a career politician. What we have found from our own internal numbers is that when you define who Joe Biden is and you talk about all of the things he’s done throughout his career, he becomes a much more unlikeable candidate to people.”
She continued, “Defining our opponent and talking about who Joe Biden is [includes] talking about his cozy past with communist China, [and] talking about the fact that he supported the Clinton crime bill, which disproportionately incarcerated young black men in this country.”
Defining the opponent is a “big focus” of the president’s re-election campaign, said Trump. “[Biden] is the true Trojan horse for the very far-left socialist Marxist Democrats that are running that party, right now.”
Biden has selected Ocasio-Cortez as a campaign advisor on “climate change” and named O’Rourke as his lead on “the gun problem.”
Trump calls Biden’s promise to select a woman as his running mate, an insult to female voters’ intelligence.
“Joe Biden and the Democrats [are] doing what they always do, pandering for votes [with] identity politics,” Trump said. “Joe Biden has been very clear. He’s choosing a woman as his running mate, as if women are dumb enough to think, ‘Well, hey, that’s a great idea. If he picks a woman as his vice-presidential running mate, then I’ll vote for him.'”
Trump went on, “You tried it in 2016 with Hillary Clinton, Democrats. We were not falling for it then. We’re not going to fall for it now. It’s actually insulting to think women are that stupid that we would vote based on somebody’s gender or what they look like, but I’ll leave it to the Democrats to continue that trend. Women are smart, and they’re always going to vote for their own best interests.”
Trump also called attention to Biden’s apparent impaired cognition.
“Joe Biden barely even knows where he is,” she said. “This guy can barely put together two coherent sentences.”
News media “don’t want people to see [Biden’s] cognitive decline,” she remarked, adding, “This man does not have all his faculties about him. It would be terrifying to have him lead this country.”
On Friday, July 17, Vice President Mike Pence gave a speech in Ripon, Wisconsin, where he criticized Biden’s stance on immigration, climate change, and the economy. He also accused Biden of supporting the “defund the police” movement.
“Joe Biden would weaken the thin blue line that separates us from chaos,” Pence said. “You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America.”
“It’s not so much whether America will be more conservative or more liberal, more Republican or Democrat, more red or blue. It’s whether America remains America,” he said, reports The Hill.
Pence warned that Biden would become an “autopen” after Biden’s campaign unveiled its “unity agenda” with Bernie Sanders.
“I thought Joe Biden won the Democrat primaries, but looking at their unity agenda, it looks to me like Bernie won,” Pence quipped.
