Biden campaign amps up focus on Trump, starting with Jan. 6 speech
The Biden campaign is increasing its focus on President Donald Trump in the wake of the January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol, beginning with a speech from Vice President Kamala Harris on Saturday. Flagbearer Joe Biden has not appeared publicly since his speech on Jan. 6th condemning the violence and calling for national unity, and his campaign is now intensifying its efforts to draw attention to Trump’s role in inspiring the events. In her remarks on Saturday, Harris will highlight the danger of Trump’s “lies and conspiracy theories” and slam his “reckless” incitement of the mob. The speech is expected to set the tone for Biden’s strategy of framing the 2020 election not simply as a choice between two candidates, but as a moral referendum on Trump and his allies. Biden himself plans to make a major address on Trump soon, likely before Inauguration Day.
