Washington/IBNS-CMEDIA: US President Joe Biden instructed the staff of his 2024 reelection campaign to ramp up attacks on former US President Donald Trump’s public statements, CNN reported, citing two sources familiar with the directive.

Biden told senior campaign staff to bring more attention to what Trump says, the report said on Tuesday.

One senior campaign adviser reportedly said that Biden’s team has been surprised by how many voters view Trump’s presidency through “rose-coloured glasses” and is trying to remind the public of the former officeholder’s more contentious moments.

“Donald Trump is the polar opposite of everything President Biden stands for and has accomplished since he took office, and the campaign’s top priority over the next nine months will be laying out that stark choice for voters,” Biden campaign rapid response director Ammar Moussa said in a statement.

Last week, the Biden campaign launched a new advertisement attacking Trump for his stances on NATO, which include encouraging other countries to pay more into the alliance.

The advertisement criticised Trump’s position as dangerous and un-American and highlighted Biden’s commitment to NATO.
