(PartiallyPolitics.com) – President Biden’s reelection campaign has had to go on the defensive as many have questioned whether they were being aggressive enough in the fight against former President Donald Trump.
Many notable Democrats, including former President Barack Obama, have reportedly privately stated that they were concerned over the campaign structure and questioned whether there was enough staff to make decisions without requiring the involvement of a small number of people in the White House. The campaign has addressed these criticisms by claiming that they would be scaling up in due time and that in the New Year, they would focus more on condemning Trump and his previous actions.
On Friday, President Biden delivered a speech showcasing this strategy, during which he claimed that the former President was a threat to the United States democracy. The speech came at the third-anniversary mark of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack. Following this speech, Biden’s campaign funds raised over $1 million within 24 hours. This further showed that democracy was a winner for the Biden campaign in 2024.
On Monday, Biden employed a similarly aggressive stance during a speech at Mother Emanual church, where he had called Trump a “loser” and had argued that losers were “taught to concede” after losing.
Biden campaign spokesperson Kevin Munoz had told The Hill that they were starting the year with a focus on showing Americans that freedom and democracy would be on the ballot in 2024. He added that this was a message that they would campaign on throughout the year, along with a full-set of other issues.
