Biden launches $300 million ad campaign

US presidential election

Joe Biden says he is a much more effective president than Donald Trump.

At 81, Joe Biden is the oldest president ever to run for re-election – and many have raised concerns about his mental health and other age-related issues.

But he is determined to do all he can to convince voters that he is fit to serve for another four years, and has recently launched a lavish $30 million advertising campaign.

In the ad, Biden jokes that he is “not a young guy” – but that he understands “how to get things done for the American people”.

He goes on to claim that he “led the country through the covid crisis” and that he has a clear strategy for fighting US inflation.

– Today we have the strongest economy in the world. I passed a law that lowered the price of prescription drugs, capped insulin at $35 a month for seniors, he continues.

Challenger Donald Trump also takes a hit, with Mr Biden claiming he is far more effective than his rival.

– For four years, Donald Trump tried to pass an infrastructure law and he failed. I got it done. Now we’re rebuilding America. I’ve passed the biggest law in history to combat climate change because our future depends on it.

– Donald Trump believes the job of the president is to take care of Donald Trump. I believe the job of the president is to fight for you, the American people, and that’s what I’m doing, he continues.

Even at the end of the ad, Biden takes the opportunity to “joke” about his age, describing himself as “very young, energetic and handsome”.

While Biden’s age has become a major focus in the upcoming election, it should be noted that Donald Trump is also getting on in years, turning 78 this summer.
