Biden Uses Trump’s 34 Felony Convictions In Ad

Donald Trump

With the first highly anticipated presidential debate approaching, President Joe Biden and Donald Trump are ramping up their campaign efforts. Recently, the Biden campaign ran an ad referencing Trump’s 34 felony convictions.

In the ad, Team Biden points out that Trump is a “convicted criminal who’s only out for himself.” This comes shortly after the Manhattan jury found Trump guilty on multiple counts, subsequently, when Biden began referring to his opponent as a “convicted felon.” With the conviction, Trump is the first former president in American history to be convicted of a crime.

“In the courtroom, we see Donald Trump for who he is,” the Biden campaign ad begins. The ad goes on to detail the felonies, such as financial fraud and sexual assault. These statements are then strategically juxtaposed with Biden’s efforts, including lowering health care costs and more.

“This election is between a convicted criminal who’s only out for himself and a president who’s fighting for your family,” the ad continues. The ad is part of Biden’s $50 million advertising blitz for June ahead of the first presidential debate on June 27 in Atlanta.

Trump, who plans to appeal his 34 felony convictions, has accused the prosecution of being politically motivated and ruling in favor of the White House. In response to the convictions, conservatives and independents gathered to raise millions to support the Trump campaign.

Key states across the US also don’t seem too bothered with the convictions, with Trump currently leading ahead of Biden.

In addition to the 34 convictions, Trump faces three other trials for charges related to the 2020 election results and his handling of classified documents after leaving the White House.

Amidst Trump’s convictions, Biden and his family have faced legal challenges this year. In February, Biden was being investigated for his handling of classified documents. Soon after, special counsel Robert Hur wrote, “We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

Last week, Hunter Biden, the president’s son, was also convicted of three felony counts, including lying on paperwork during the purchase of a firearm and owning the gun while being a drug addict in 2018.
