Trump posts a video with an image of a tied-up Biden, drawing criticism from the president’s campaign

March 29, 2024

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was criticized Friday for posting a video on social media with the image of a tied-up President Biden painted on the tailgate of a passing truck.

The Biden campaign quickly condemned the video, saying it suggested physical harm to the Democratic president. Biden has portrayed his likely 2024 opponent as evoking Nazi imagery regarding immigrants, while also emphasizing in speeches that Trump’s efforts to overturn his loss in the 2020 election ultimately led to an attack on America Capitol.

“Trump regularly incites political violence, and in his day people take him seriously. Just ask the Capitol Police officers who were attacked on January 6 to protect our democracy,” said Michael Tyler, communications director for the Biden campaign.

Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung responded Friday evening: That photo was on the back of a pickup truck driving down the highway. Democrats and crazed lunatics have not only called for despicable violence against President Trump and his family, they are actually weaponizing the justice system against him.

The US Secret Service released a statement saying it “does not confirm or comment on protective intelligence matters.

The former president posted the video on his social media site Truth Social. His caption said the video was shot Thursday on Long Island, New York, when Trump attended the vigil for a New York police officer killed during a traffic stop.

The posted video shows a passing truck decorated with Trump 2024 signs and flags claiming support for police, with a photo on the back of the vehicle depicting Biden with his hands and feet tied.

Shares in Trump Media & Technology Group Corp. began trading on the stock market on Tuesday, with the valuation adding billions of dollars to Trump’s fortune.

Seeking a return to the White House, Trump has painted an apocalyptic picture of the country if Biden secures a second term.

If I am not elected, it will be a bloodbath for the whole, to say the least. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country, he warned earlier this month at a meeting in Ohio, while talking about the consequences of offshoring production for the US auto industry.

Trump has spoken of immigrants poisoning the blood of our country, echoing the rhetoric of Adolf Hitler. And he once described his enemies as vermin, language his opponents say reflects his authoritarian tendencies.

At a recent rally, Trump labeled Biden’s handling of the border a conspiracy to overthrow the United States of America.

Last year, before his indictment in New York over hush money paid on his behalf during his 2016 campaign, Trump reposted a photo on social media of himself holding a baseball bat next to a photo of Dist. Atty. Alvin Bragg.

In a 2018 speech, Biden discussed lewd comments Trump had made about women and expressed his disgust by suggesting a willingness to physically fight the then-president.

If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat him up, Biden said at the time, adding that any man who had no respect for women was usually the fattest and ugliest SOB in the room.
