VIDEO: GOP Hits Biden With Savage Attack Video Day of His Re-Election Announcement
Just hours after President Biden announced his re-election bid for 2024, the Republican Party came prepared with a scathing AI-generated response video calling his competence, handling of the economy, and foreign policy into question.
The video came on the same day that Biden announced his re-election bid, which was followed by a 3-minute video that laid out the President’s top priorities as he kicked off his campaign to secure a second term in the White House.
Most of his priorities hit on familiar themes from his 2022, including protecting ‘democracy’ and the rights of Americans which he claims are under siege by Republicans. Perhaps most notably, it made no mention of the economy.
Every generation has a moment where they have had to stand up for democracy. To stand up for their fundamental freedoms. I believe this is ours.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) fired back just one hour after Biden posted his announcement video.
‘What if the weakest president we ever had were re-elected,’ the video asks before launching into a series of attacks against Biden’s competency and record.
The video begins by setting the stage for Biden’s second term, wondering aloud how the President, whom Trump called ‘diminished and weak’ on the 2020 Presidential campaign trail, would respond to various crises.
‘What if international tensions escalate?’
Then it turns its attention to home: ‘What if financial systems crumble?’
‘What if our border is gone,’ it continues. ‘What if crime worsens.’

Former President Donald Trump, who is the current frontrunner for the 2024 Republican nomination, tore into Biden on Tuesday after his announcement as well. Trump echoed themes discussed in the GOP’s attack ad, going after Biden’s record on the economy and foreign policy.
‘Thanks to Joe Biden’s socialist spending calamity, American families are being decimated by the worst inflation in half a century. Banks are failing,’ he said.
He then discussed the decline of the prominence of the American dollar.
‘Our currency is crashing, and the dollar will soon no longer be the world standard, which will be our greatest defeat in over 200 years.’
Confronting Biden on perhaps the most important event of his administration, the invasion of Ukraine, Trump argued that Putin would have never invaded the country if he was in charge.
‘Ukraine has been devastated by an invasion that would never, ever have happened if I was president—and Joe Biden has led us to the very brink of World War III.’ He said.
Other prominent conservatives followed suit, hammering Biden on a wide variety of issues they believe he has fallen short on.
‘Whether it’s his worst-in-40-years inflation; continued school closures; the out-of-control-and-about-to-get-worse border crisis; the Afghanistan withdrawal debacle; lawless executive actions like the vaccine mandate, the eviction moratorium, and the student loan debt payoff scam; or any of a host of other issues, Biden’s policies have hurt America and continue to hurt America.’ said Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin.
House GOP Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik concurred: ‘Our country will not support another four years of Joe Biden’s disastrous policies crushing hardworking American families.’
Americans cannot survive another four years of the Biden Administration. We deserve better.https://t.co/wj4HrdJWRX

Stefanik is a key Trump supporter, who she reiterated her support for during her response to Biden’s announcement.
‘Now more than ever, our country needs Donald J. Trump and I will do everything in my power to help elect him in 2024 as President of the United States of America.’
