Joe Biden launched his reelection bid on Tuesday with the release of a new video that fails to name a single achievement in his first term — nor any plan for what he might hope to achieve in his second term.
Instead, the video dwells on abortion (“personal freedom”), as well as “MAGA extremists,” whom the country must defeat in what Biden calls a “battle for the soul of our nation,” repeating a theme from his 2020 campaign.
The only hints at any kind of first-term achievement are images of Biden’s nomination of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court.
The video does not mention economic policy, nor foreign policy, nor challenges like inflation or the border. It is focused on oblique references to abortion and attacks on “MAGA extremists.”
