WATCH: New Biden Ad Crushes Trump on COVID-19, China
Right now, it doesn’t really feel like there is a Presidential election looming in November. Joe Biden recently sealed up the Democratic nomination, but he hasn’t been able to capitalize on his momentum. Donald Trump has essentially turned his daily COVID-19 press briefings into campaign rallies.
Biden, without the ability to campaign around the countries, has to turn to more digital means of getting his message out. The Democratic hopeful has done that through releasing multiple spots hitting Trump on his coronavirus response. The latest ad slams the President for the way he has dealt with China throughout the pandemic.
The video was produced in conjunction with American Bridge, a Democratic super PAC. The ad will run in targeted battleground states like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
The spot begins by slamming Trump for sending tons of valuable PPE overseas. American Bridge President Bradley Beychok says, “Donald Trump sent critical medical supplies to China as Americans continue to suffer. He needs to follow his supposed motto of America First. We’re making sure that voters across Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin know full well not only how badly Trump botched this crisis, but also how badly he bent the knee to China in the midst of it as well.”
The campaign ad also blasts Trump for praising China in the early stages of the pandemic. A narrator reads, “When Trump rolled over for the Chinese, he took their word for it. Trump praised the Chinese 15 times in January and February as the coronavirus spread across the world.”
