Like in 2016, President Donald Trump seems to want to found his re-election campaign on outright lies. On Wednesday, the day after Trump delivered a rambling, campaign-style speech in the Rose Garden in which he ranted against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, Trump continued the anti-Biden meltdown with an array of anti-Biden Twitter posts that he shared. He brazenly and ludicrously lied about the Biden campaign platform. For example, Trump claimed that Biden wants to “Abolish Police, Abolish ICE, Abolish Bail, Abolish Suburbs, [and] Abolish the 2nd Amendment” — all of which is an outright lie and some of which is brazenly ridiculous to even claim about Biden in the first place.

Trump posted:

‘The Biden-Sanders unity plan takes a sledgehammer to charter schools, punishing students for their zip codes. No one will be SAFE in Joe Biden’s America!.. Joe Biden and the Radical Left want to Abolish Police, Abolish ICE, Abolish Bail, Abolish Suburbs, Abolish the 2nd Amendment – and Abolish the American Way of Life. No one will be SAFE in Joe Biden’s America!’

What is that even supposed to mean? Trump says that Biden wants to “Abolish Suburbs” — can he explain, in actual, tangible terms, what that’s even supposed to mean? It’s clearly supposed to sound scary to his base, but it means nothing and has no apparent relationship whatsoever to the actual substance of Joe Biden’s policy proposals. This week, Biden rolled out policy proposals like a plan to spend trillions on modernizing the nation’s energy infrastructure in order to make it more protective of the climate. That’s an actual, tangible plan, whose specifics can be pointed to — and all Trump has is this nonsensical gobbledygook.

He’s panicking in the wake of seemingly forever dismal poll numbers. Currently, Biden leads Trump by an average of 8.8 percent in national polls, according to RealClearPolitics. Biden also has leads in crucial swing states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, all of which Trump won in 2016 and were crucial to his victory. Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Trump also tweeted messages of support for individuals in Iran who the government was planning to execute. He included the hashtag “#StopExecutionsInIran.” Just this week, Trump’s own administration restarted the death penalty after 13 years of no federal executions.
