Biden Campaign Accuses Trump of Fundraising by Spreading ‘Garbage’ About Former VP
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign has accused the Trump campaign of raising money by from ‘garbage’ about their candidate. In an email sent to supporters, the Biden team responded directly to a Trump campaign email trashing Biden.
“Folks, it’s clear to us that Trump has no intention of scrapping his dirty playbook for this year’s election,” the campaign said. “Just take a look at some of the garbage he’s been raising money off of.”
The email contained a graphic of Trump campaign emails, variously attacking Biden and accusing him of spying on Donald Trump. There is no evidence that Biden or anyone in the Obama administration spied on Trump but the President has continued to make the claim.
“Look, this is what we’re up against this year. Trump is going to use his same sleazy tricks to try and lie his way into a second term,” the campaign said.
“We have to fight back against these lies.. It’s up to us to stop Donald Trump, and the only way we’re going to be able to do that is by building a massive campaign operation to mobilize every voter in support of Joe Biden.”
Donald Trump’s reelection campaign has leaned heavily on false claims about Biden’s actions in early 2017. The President has spread the ‘Obamagate’ conspiracy theory and his team is using these false accusations to raise campaign funds from supporters.
