Late Friday, President Biden took a jab at former President Trump by referencing former first lady Melania Trump’s “Be Best” anti-cyberbullying campaign. In response to a CNN report claiming that Trump was “rattled” by Biden’s increasingly personal insults on the campaign trail, Biden reposted the report on his official X account, formerly known as Twitter, and simply wrote, “Be Best.”
The video, initially shared by the Biden campaign’s digital rapid response channel on X, highlighted Biden’s strategy of throwing Trump off-message by labeling him a “loser” and emphasizing the “former” in the former president, according to the CNN report.
Biden, known for his witty responses, likened Trump to Herbert Hoover, the president during the Great Depression, and sarcastically commented, “Good one, Donald” on X.
This came after reposting a report from his campaign contrasting Trump’s prediction of a stock market crash under Biden with the market hitting “all-time record highs” that week.
Mocking Trump’s confusion between Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at a New Hampshire rally, Biden posted, “I don’t agree with Nikki Haley on everything, but we agree on this much: She is not Nancy Pelosi.”
Following Trump’s victory in the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 15, Biden posted a video asserting that despite numerous Republicans attempting to defeat him, he remained the person to have defeated Donald Trump and looked forward to doing it again.
Melania Trump launched the “Be Best” campaign in 2018 with the goal of providing children with the tools to cultivate their social and emotional health. Emphasizing the importance of adults educating children about a healthy and balanced life, she aimed to promote overall well-being in young individuals.
