On Tuesday, President Joe Biden kicked off his campaign for reelection by releasing a video that did not highlight any of his accomplishments during his first term or any of his plans for his second term.
Instead, the video emphasized the significance of personal freedom, particularly regarding abortion, as well as the necessity of defeating “MAGA extremists” in a “battle for the spirit of our nation.”
Biden discusses protecting democratic government and ensuring equal opportunity for all Americans in the video.
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.
That’s why I’m running for reelection as President of the United States. Join us. Let’s finish the job. https://t.co/V9Mzpw8Sqy pic.twitter.com/Y4NXR6B8ly

On the other hand, he is critical of Republicans, asserting they want to reduce funding for Social Security, outlaw books, reduce the number of healthcare options available to women, and make voting more difficult.
Fact-checkers have debunked these claims, so they cannot be accurate.
Biden’s video also includes images of Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, whom he nominated, as the only hint of a first-term accomplishment.
It is noteworthy that the video does not address any of the nation’s current challenges, including those related to economic policy, international relations, etc.
You're a weak President who most people voted for to avoid another 4 years of fascism. You're so concerned about your bi-partisan bullshit that we are in the middle of an anti-trans genocide and you sit in your ivory tower doing fuck all while we are forced to detrans or die https://t.co/WhASIFOAmK

Despite these omissions, Biden is making the case to the American people that they should vote for him to be reelected.
He contends that this is a crucial time to defend democracy and individual liberty. The president also claimed in his video announcing his intentions for a second term that he is the best candidate to lead the nation forward.
In a nutshell, Joe Biden believes it’s enough to campaign on attacking Republicans and showing the fact he got a black woman nominated.
However, the video does not mention any first-term accomplishments or second-term plans and it contains a number of false claims about Republicans. Biden urges Americans to support him in his efforts to defend democracy and individual liberty in the United States.This article appeared in NewsHouse and has been published here with permission.
