In a Tweetstorm, Trump Says Biden is ‘Not a Factor’

In a tweetstorm today, President Trump tweeted he is not fighting this election against Joe Biden. This is Trump’s latest salvo against the former vice president. After getting cornered on his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, President Trump is again using his mass reach to attack political rivals and rally his base.

In the video retweeted by Trump, the presumptive Democratic nominee lies about finishing in the top half of his class in law school. He also lies about completing three degrees from undergrad school.

The president is amplifying his attacks on the previous administration off late. Bringing up Obamagate is working well for Trump as conservative outlets are covering the theory.

The immediate challenge in front of Trump isn’t Joe Biden though. The pandemic is taking its toll on the American economy. Reopening the country still looks a few weeks away. As people struggle, the management of the crisis should figure at the top of the president’s priorities.

Trump Calls Biden 1% Joe

After calling Biden irrelevant to the race, Trump referred to him as 1% Joe. This refers to the former vice president’s polling numbers when he ran for president multiple times in and before 2008.

Trump also went on to say he’s fighting the Democratic party, the radical Left, and the mainstream media, not Joe Biden.

This was only one tweet amongst several the president sent out. Some of his other tweets promoted Obamagate theories. The president didn’t spare Majority Leader Mitch McConnell either.

The Progressive View

Another one of Trump’s tirades. What’s new?

As much as the Biden campaign and the Democrats hate Trump, they need to acknowledge his savvy use of social media and ability to take on his opponents. The Obamagate story is another example of the president throwing bait at the media while the real issues get left behind.

The media is yet to press Trump on providing more direct relief to citizens or vetoing the Iran War Powers Resolution. Biden will not match Trump’s ability to capture media attention and occupy the oxygen in the national conversation. The only time people hear extended coverage about Biden these days is when another bombshell revelation from the Tara Reade story emerges.

The Biden campaign cannot match the digital supremacy of Trump. Democrats need to find a way to fight the president on a real substantial ground. Vague platitudes won’t win Biden the votes he needs to beat Trump.
