“President Trump dismisses everything he doesn’t want to hear as ‘FAKE NEWS’ — so as he announces his re-election, we want to make sure you have the real facts on record,” the Biden campaign tweeted Monday night.

 

The campaign targeted Trump’s frequent touting of the economy, saying he is “in the process of squandering” growth built by the previous administration.

“Let’s be clear: President Trump inherited a growing economy from the Obama-Biden administration,” the campaign wrote. “And now, he’s in the process of squandering it.”

The Biden campaign then hit the president for lowering the United States' “standing in the world,” saying “our core values of inclusivity, diversity, respect for the rule of law, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of religion are under attack here at home and abroad.”

 

The campaign then hit the president over the policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the border, the administration's rollback of protections for the LGBTQ community and “attacking women’s rights” through health care policy.

“We’re better than this,” the campaign wrote. “This is truly the most important election of our lifetime.”

Biden has consistently polled as the front-runner in the crowded 2020 Democratic presidential primary and has used that position to focus his campaign on Trump and his policies.
