Trump Launches Campaign Ad Using Photos Of Chaos From His Own Presidency To Blame Biden For It



Donald Trump launched a new ad campaign on Facebook this week trying to convince voters that the United States is doing worse under President Biden than it did during his time in the White House. The ads use photos of violence on the streets and suggest the chaos we see in those images is a direct result of Biden’s policies. However, as Forbes reports, the photos in the ad are from Trump’s time in the White House.

One of the photos shows a burning cop car that was taken in Chicago on May 30, 2020. That photo was published after footage surfaced of police officers killing George Floyd on May 25, 2020. Another image shows migrants wading through knee-deep water with the caption, “Central American migrants cross the Suchiate River from Mexico to Guatemala, near Tecun Uman, Guatemala, Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020.”

Trump was president from January 20, 2017 until January 20, 2021, which means the images you’re seeing were taken during Trump’s watch.

Floyd’s death sparked an avalanche of protests that summer, some of which turned violent. But none of that had anything to do with the Biden presidency despite what Trump is trying to convey with his Facebook ad campaign, which declares in bold white type, “Under Joe Biden, America is a nation in decline.”

Donald Trump ad

“The U.S. presidential election is still a year and a half away, but both Joe Biden and Donald Trump are already running ads. The GOP is even running ads made completely with artificial intelligence. And if Trump’s current tactics are any indication, he’s going to keep lying as we get closer to election day. This is the guy, after all, who famously posted photoshopped images that made his fingers look longer in 2019.” Forbes note, before adding: “Seriously.”
