The Biden campaign is set to face considerable scrutiny this week after revealing its decision to create a presence on the Truth Social media platform, which was launched by his primary opponent in the upcoming 2024 election, former President Donald Trump.
Biden’s campaign spoke exclusively to Fox News Digital about the plans, noting that the strategy behind the move is “meeting voters where they are.”
“Republicans can’t even agree on a Speaker of the House, so clearly, not every Republican thinks the same,” a spokesman for the Trump campaign told the outlet.
The Biden campaign also mentioned their intention to engage with Republican primary discussions and address any potential “mis- and disinformation” about President Joe Biden on the platform.
“There’s very little ‘truth’ happening on TruthSocial, but at least now it’ll be a little fun,” a senior Biden campaign aide told Fox.
“Well. Let’s see how this goes. Converts welcome!” the first post by the campaign is expected to say, according to Fox.
Campaign officials also said they wanted to hold “MAGA accountable on their own platform,” adding, “We will be leveraging the fact that Republicans can sometimes be our best messengers!”
They also compared the move to launch a Truth Social account as akin to “going into the lion’s den to point out Republicans’ hypocrisy and have a little fun at their own expense.”
In response, platform officials emphasized their commitment to being a “free, open platform” that welcomes users from around the world.
Steven Cheung, spokesperson for the Trump campaign, shared his perspective with Fox News Digital, stating: “Crooked Joe Biden and his team are finally acknowledging that Truth Social is hot as a pistol and the only place where real news happens. Unfortunately for Biden, his continuation of spreading misinformation to gaslight the American people in order to distract from his disastrous record won’t work, and they’ll be ratioed to oblivion.”
Additionally, a prominent pollster, widely regarded as one of the nation’s best, recently forecasted a potential “electoral landslide” for Trump in the upcoming election year. This forecast comes as President Joe Biden’s approval ratings decline, and the effects of “Bidenomics” impact the finances of everyday Americans. Pollster John McLaughlin discussed the current state of polling, key indicators to watch, and strategies for analyzing new polling data in the months ahead during an interview with radio host Michael Patrick Leahy for The Tennessee Star report on Tuesday.
“Morning Consult has Trump and Biden tied, but I’ve seen Trump up 9 in the Washington Post poll; and Trump up 3 in another. The polls say it’s looking good for Donald J. Trump,” Leahy said before swinging it over to McLaughlin, who then made a startling prediction:
Yes, because it would be an electoral landslide because when you look at it, due to the census, there’s a little more electoral vote our way.
But if you look at the toss-up states from last time and you say, ‘This means he’s going to win Wisconsin, Michigan’ – that’s why I went to Detroit last week to stand up for union workers, going to lose their jobs in China.
Arizona has 11 electoral votes.
Nevada 6 – we could win that. That was close last time.
We’ll win Georgia because they changed the election law to require a voter ID, not just for in-person, but also for absentee – there are 16 electoral votes there.
We got a shot at Pennsylvania in spite of their trying to manipulate the mail-in votes. There’s 19 electoral votes there.
And Ohio has 7 – Ohio, we’re gonna win.
But there are 77 electoral votes that would switch.
So we would go from last time, 232 electoral votes – we’d be at 304 already.
