The Biden campaign team is ramping up its focus on President Donald Trump ahead of the president’s Jan. 6 speech.
The campaign has put out a range of ads attacking Trump’s record on issues like health care and the economy, and have deployed prominent officials and surrogates to offer their critique of the Trump presidency.
Vice President-elect Kamala Harris has also criticized the president on his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and other issues, and Biden himself is expected to deliver a speech focusing on Trump’s record and divisive rhetoric on Jan. 6.
The move is seen as an attempt to bring attention back to Trump and his policies as the Biden administration is set to take office in just a few weeks. The Biden team wants to ensure Trump’s speech is marked by opposition, rather than support, and their continued criticism of the outgoing president sets the stage for the incoming administration.
