ai express – During a campaign speech in South Carolina, President Joe Biden launched his reelection campaign for the 2024 general election and took the opportunity to critique his Republican rival, Donald Trump. Biden specifically targeted Trump’s economic policies, drawing a parallel between the former president and veterans. He expressed his disapproval of Trump’s reported comments referring to veterans as “suckers and losers” and highlighted the fact that Trump declined to visit a US cemetery near Paris. In contrast, Biden praised veterans as patriots and heroes. Additionally, Biden emphasized his economic track record, noting that the current state of the American economy is lagging behind that of other major economies worldwide.
Biden also expressed his delight in the historically low levels of Black unemployment and the significant reduction in the racial wealth gap over the past 20 years. Analysts caution that both Trump and Biden will encounter comparable obstacles in the upcoming 2024 elections, with Trump potentially garnering more Black votes than any previous Republican candidate. Recent polls indicate that Americans are displaying increased confidence in the economy, as evident by the overall index score rising by three points to -19 in January 2024 compared to December 2023.
Biden has also increased his criticism of Trump, taking a jab at former first lady Melania Trump’s anti-bullying slogan, “Be Best,” which she used back in 2018. The speech was interrupted three times by protesters, including pro-Palestinian demonstrators and a climate activist. According to Real Clear Polling, in a hypothetical rematch in 2024, the Republican frontrunner would secure 47.3% of the vote, while the Democratic incumbent would receive 43.5%. It’s worth noting that in the 2020 election, Trump garnered 55.1% of the vote in South Carolina.
