“Joe Biden has embraced the radical left’s policy,” said an ominous voice-over, who then criticizes Biden’s views on taxes, immigration and police finance.
“The radical left has taken over Joe Biden and the Democratic Party,” the ad concludes. “Don’t let them take over America.”
The other advertisement, dubbed “Cards”, depicts a woman sitting silently on the edge of a bed and showing a series of posters printed with sentences in block text.
The woman browses through the messages and reveals that she is the mother of four children, claiming that Biden “has embraced the extreme left’s policies.”
“I’m afraid to say this out loud … I will not risk my children’s future with Biden,” the posters say, nodding to the “silent majority” that Trump has attributed to his rise to the White House.
The pair of spots will run on local broadcasts and cable outlets, as well as Spanish language channels, in North Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Arizona – accompanied by a national cable purchase, the campaign said in a news item.
In a statement that responded to the new ads, Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates dismissed the Trump campaign as being “locked in a sad and pathetic cycle of bimonthly, shambolic messages” “resets” – all based on the same recycled lies that voters have seen countless times before. ‘
The Trump campaign acknowledged on Monday that it “paused advertising for several days during a review of advertising tactics and resumed with a smarter, more strategic approach that recognizes the staggered calendar presented in the 2020 elections.”
Stepien said in a statement that while the “countdown clock may be 91 days left” before Election Day, “elections actually start much earlier than that”.
“In many states, more than half of the voters will vote well before Election Day, and we’ve adjusted our strategy accordingly,” said Stepien. “Joe Biden continues to spend millions of dollars a week in states that don’t come online for two months and we encourage him to keep doing this.”
Notably absent from one of the ads released by the Trump campaign on Monday is a reference to Biden as ‘Sleepy Joe’ or ‘Beijing Biden’, pejoratives previously used by the president’s reelection attempt to cast doubt on Biden’s mental acuity and accusing him of unsavory ties to China’s communist government.
In a interview On Monday morning, Stepien also described on Fox News exclusively as a “pawn of the radical margin” of his party and an “empty barrel of the radical left”.
“I think you should judge Joe Biden by the people he’s around,” Stepien said. “At every step of this campaign, at every milestone in this campaign, he has swung to the radical left of his party.”
Since Biden became the suspected Democratic candidate in June, Trump has seemingly struggled to define the former vice president, who led a relatively moderate primary race and largely avoided verbal stumbling blocks as he largely campaigns from the basement of his Delaware home .
Virtually all public opinion polls show that Trump is significantly behind Biden at the national level, as well as the battlefield states that drove the president into office in 2016.
