(RightIsRight.co) – Feeling threatened by his steady rise in polls in key battleground states, the Biden campaign launched a smear tactic, likening former President Donald Trump’s recent remarks to Adolf Hitler’s rhetoric.
The campaign’s allegations followed Trump’s comments at a Durham, New Hampshire rally, where he discussed several world leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“Tonight, Donald Trump channeled his role models as he parroted Adolf Hitler, praised Kim Jong Un, and quoted Vladimir Putin while running for president on a promise to rule as a dictator and threaten American democracy,” stated Ammar Moussa, a spokesperson for the Biden-Harris campaign.
Moussa’s statement further claimed that Trump is planning mass detentions and continuing to dispute the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election results. Trump’s approach, the campaign asserts, is rooted in promoting fear and division among the American populace.
Trump’s political strategy, marked by expressions of recognition and respect for worldwide political figures, has been a consistent element of his presidency and current campaign.
Seeking a return to the White House, Trump has maintained a significant lead over other Republican primary candidates, making him Biden’s most probable challenger in the upcoming election.
Trump has also been confrontational towards his political adversaries amid four partisan criminal indictments, two of which were initiated by the Biden administration’s Justice Department.
True to his nature, Trump has been vocal about his vision for a future administration, even in jest. During a town hall with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Trump joked about being a dictator for a day, saying that on his first day back in office, he would expand oil and gas drilling and “close” the U.S. southern border. “After that, I’m not a dictator,” he said.
The Biden campaign, through its spokesperson, remains hopeful that Trump’s tactics will help the Democratic campaign amidst dismal approval ratings and a mounting challenge in the run-up to the 2024 presidential election.
“He is betting he can win this election by scaring and dividing this country. He’s wrong. In 2020, Americans chose President Biden’s vision of hope and unity over Trump’s vision of fear and division — and they’ll do the same next November,” Moussa asserted.
